The Week in Dallas-Fort Worth Deals
Retail deals are heating up as activity increases with more aggressive underwriting and financing options in the past 12 months.

Brian says he expects the aggressive underwriting and available financing options should continue throughout 2015. This transaction encompassed three tenants (all restaurants) and the deal was closed about 35 days from the date of the signed LOI.
