Freak Fire Leads to Most Popular Listing in Texas 

Every now and then, I run across a listing that I know will be super popular with buyers and this was one of those homes.   But it wasn't until I was contacted by County Living Magazine that I realized just how popular it really was.  This McKinney home was the most popular listing in Texas with over 25,000 views on Realtor.com, on the first day alone.  

A freak fire caused this beautiful family home in McKinney to go up in flames in the middle of the night.   The fire destroyed the attic, the 2nd floor and part of the 1st floor.   What wasn't destroyed by fire was heavily damaged by smoke and water.   

What remained after the fire was the gorgeous 3/4 acre cul-de-sac lot and pool.  For various and personal reasons, the sellers decided to sell the property instead of rebuilding.   

The property was listed for lot value which is part of the reason for the high level of interest. 

I am continuing to follow the buyers progress as he restores and rebuilds this home.  Once complete, I will provide an update with the before and after photos.
