Is it just me, or is the Vegas all-you-can-drink uber-debauched stag/bachelorette party gone passe? Maybe I’ve watched “The Hangover” one too many times (OK, I watched it once, which may be one too many), I think so. Or maybe it’s just because I’m officially in my 30s, but what this dear CandysDirt.com reader is describing sounds just perfect.

Ebby’s Place Beyond The Little White House: YWCA Names Women’s Center After Dallas’ Grand Dame of Real Estate
What a stellar 103rd birthday gift! Ebby Halliday Companies announced today that the new YW Women’s Center on Inwood Road between Maple and Denton Drive will be “Ebby’s Place,” named after none other than Dallas’ grand dame of real estate, Ebby Halliday herself.

CoreLogic’s newest HPI report released today showed that Texas real estate professionals have good reason to blame their busy days on the hot market. Home prices in Texas are at new highs (yes, higher than pre-bubble manic market highs!), with January 2014 up 10.1 percent over a year ago, and home prices up 1.2 percent from Dec. 2013 (numbers include distressed sales).
What a fantastic opportunity to live in one of the most coveted areas of Dallas! The Peninsula is an amazing neighborhood on the eastern shore of White Rock Lake, with splendid views of the lake and a small-town feel. It’s an amazing area with neighbors who care about maintaining the quality of life. There are some phenomenal homes here, too, whether brand new or restored.
After 22 months of growth, are Dallas home prices about to hit a plateau? Could be.

Dallas now ranks with 13 of the top 20 cities measured by Case-Shiller’s HPI with double digits. Nationally, the home price index is up 13.4 percent year-over-year.
