mayoralSome Dallas mayoral candidates like historic, some like new, two don’t even own homes but rent. And they live north, south, east and well, not west. And, remarkably, some of the most expensive homes belong to the female candidates in Dallas’ mayoral race — but with a caveat.

Regina Montoya has the biggest, most expensive real estate of the group with a home valued at roughly $4.3 million. Lynn McBee’s Highland Park home at 3912 Miramar is on the market for almost $3.5 million, and she’s living in an apartment in downtown Dallas. (more…)

Update 11:33 am: Grabbed a quick chat with Nate Shar with Heritage Auctions who tells me that at least eight people are registered to bid for Leppert’s ski crib, but they expect a few more showing at the actual auction on site. It happens at 2 p.m. No reserve. Mountain Time. Wish you were there? 

Maybe he did it because he wants some of Trump’s real estate prowess to rub off on today’s sale? Maybe he did it because he ran against Ted Cruz and is not a fan, I don’t know. Whatever. Out of all the Republican contenders, the endorsement was a shocking move from the former Dallas mayor.  I’d sure like to ask him why.

But I might just wait until after today’s sale of his magnificent Park City, Utah ski house.

There is no minimum at all, and this home was last listed for $6.2 million. I mean, can you spell DEAL?

As you know, former Dallas mayor Tom Leppert and his wife, Laura, have been trying to shed some properties. First it was their home on Alva Court with that jazzy media room, remember? It was listed by Mary Poss and then Ryan Streiff, the current agent. Asking is still $4,795,000.

But my oh my Park City Utah! I am actually headed that way to check out some more vacation home possibilities, some a little more affordable than a $6.2 million ski-in. ski-out house, though this place could be the best bargain west of the Mississippi come two p.m. Mountain Time.

This is a fantastic piece of property that you can see from the ski lifts. I know exactly where this house is. In fact, if you have ever skied Park City — there are three neighboring resorts, Deer Valley, Park City and Canyons comprising 7300 acres of white powder — this home is near the Dreamcatcher Lift. And it sounds like a dream! (more…)
