A vacant lot on Arkansas Lane in Pantego has been sold by its Houston-based owner to an Arlington limited partnership.
The 0.68-acre site, 2317 W. Arkansas Lane, is zoned for office and retail uses.
“This site is a diamond in the rough with 150 feet of frontage along a prominent four-lane road,” said Wayne Burgdorf with Coldwell Banker Commercial Alliance DFW, who represented the seller, Schnitzer Grandchildren’s Trust. “It’s a strong location for a retail business or professional office.”
Buying the property was TPS Family, an Arlington-based investor group. Steve Turnbow with MGM Equity Partners represented the buyer.
DFW negative-equity rate drops
Dallas-Fort Worth has one of the lowest rates of negative equity, where homeowners are underwater on their mortgages, according to home data provider Zillow.
According to a recent report, the negative equity rate in Dallas-Fort Worth fell in the first quarter to 6.9 percent from 8.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2014, Zillow said. A year ago, negative equity was at 13 percent in the Metroplex.
Nationwide, the rate of negative equity among mortgaged homeowners was 15.4 percent in the first quarter, compared to 18.8 percent a year ago, Zillow said.
More than 4 million homeowners owe lenders at least 20 percent more than their homes are worth, the report said. That means those homes would have to appreciate by at least 20 percent for their owners to have any chance of breaking even on a sale, Zillow said.
At the peak of the real-estate crisis, more than 15 million homeowners owed more on their mortgages than their homes were worth, Zillow said.
