  1. Another great show, a lot of good ideals and info!

  2. I’d wait awhile – real estate is still in disbelief and shock. Price are likely to tumble in a big way.

  3. Check the county tax website for an individual county. SOMETIMES, they will include a link to the satelitte picture with a defined lot…SOMETIMES. Dallas county does, Tarrant county (TX) says they do, but it is a difficult site to navigate.
