Tag Archives: Pearly Gates
Talk about a rare opportunity, here is a chance to live behind those pearly gates on the Darias and rub shoulders with George and Laura on the Fourth of July (if he’s not at the ranch) and trick or treat chez Bush come October. Talk to another Realtor and they will tell you that having a former prez as a neighbor beefs up your property value big time. I recall talking to Houstonian Bob Hale a few years ago – super nice Realtor and broker who told me in no uncertain terms that having a president as a neighbor and the added security does NOTHING but increase your property value. And if you will recall, tax dollars paid for the gate after City Council approval — in May 1993, after Bush’s father President H.W. Bush left office, our Legislature passed a bill that allows cities to restrict access to streets “on which the former president of the United States is located.” That explains why most of the Bush house hunting was restricted to cul de sacs. So yeah, buy this and maybe President Obama will snap it up next!
