How To Build A Chicken

Recently I ran across a picture that really spoke to me.  If there was a narrative, I didn't read it.  The picture was enough.


How To Build A Chicken

This man had a dream.  I am sure people looked at him as though he was crazy much like Noah.  But he didn't care if they laughed or not.  He had a dream. He was going to build a chicken.

I imagine the first thing he had to do was sketch it out and take some time thinking about what moving parts he needs, what order he should get them, and where he would find them.

With his outline and list of parts he began to look for the things he would need. He was probably on a tight budget. Who could imagine spending money on a dream this big and seemingly silly? 

He found his best pieces in junk yards.  Things people saw no use for but he could see how this thrown away piece would be an integral part of of his overall plan.  I imagine sometimes he was disappointed because what he thought would work didn't and he had to start over on this part of his plan.

He always kept his plan laid out in front of him so he knew where to go next and what he needed next. Sometimes it took days or even weeks to find what he needed.  He probably even ran a Craigslist ad looking for something most of us have never heard of.

It seems likely that while he was looking for a hydraulic for his leg that he might find a feather for its tail so he kept that and put it aside until he needed it. 
The more the chicken began to look like a chicken the more his confidence grew.  People were looking at him with a little more respect and started looking the chicken over and wondered if they might want a chicken and if maybe he would share his plan with them.

The triumphant day came.  He climbed up to the top of the chicken, knowing this would work only if the time he spent building the base, the legs and feet were enough to hold him up.  

With some trepidation he turned the key and it worked!  He had built a chicken.

Follow your dream.  Don't give up.  Build your own chicken.

Hillside Terrace Amarillo March 2015 Real Estate Statistics


Market Update for March 2015

March was very interesting in Hillside Terrace

As of today there are 20 active listings ranging in price from $159,900 to $256,500. The average DOM is 50 with an average list price of $105.26 a square ft. Twelve are new construction and 8 are resales.

Look at this. There are 22 pending--more pendings than actives. They range in price from $149,000 to $215,000. Average days on the market are 83 and average pend price per sq ft. is $105.43. Ten of those are new construction and 12 are resales.

Is our market shifting?



In March there were 12 closed ranging in price from $149,500 to $213,000. Average DOM 132. Average sq ft sold is $102.85.

Of these 7 were resales with an average DOM of 118 and sold at $104.43 a square ft.

Watch this---5 were new construction. Average DOM 153 the the AVERAGE SOLD SQ FT was $100.63. One of those was a garden home and it sold for $103 sq ft.

Can builders afford to continue to build if they can't get more than $100 a square ft? Will that drive resale prices up? Thinking about selling? Might be a good time to look into it.  Complete the form above.
