Greenbrier $950 635657440772825000_HC8_ext_1600x1200_NP

While flipping the filets yesterday, while it was pouring rain, I was aghast that I had left you with the impression that only a gadzillionaire could afford a vacation home at The Greenbrier. In fact, the Greenbrier Sporting Club is one of the best values in vacation home properties. I showed you a $5 million house, how about one for UNDER a million?

Lookie here: while the Sporting Club LOTS start at about $150,000, here is a 3-bedroom retreat, within close proximity to the resort, for less than a million. $989,900 to be exact. Reduced even.

And at this point I could at least grill on a LOT without rain seasoning the food! (more…)

Housekeeping note: I now have two blogs. covers all the local real estate news in Dallas, reaching out to Fort Worth slowly but surely. is now your source for news on the second home market. We will also cover any local second home related events sponsored by SecondShelters, and offer guest posts from qualified bloggers, authors, and second home experts. From time to time, I may re-package a post to either blog. is everything my DallasDirt blog was, and more, and we even have a show on NBC DFW NonStop Nightly where we will also be covering second homes. Meantime, SecondShelters is growing a national audience.  Please like BOTH blogs on their FaceBook pages, subscribe and share!!/dallasdirtcandy!/secondshelters
