My husband and I are both teachers- he is with Lewisville ISD (Hebron) and I am with Richardson ISD. We're looking to get out of an apartment and into a home soon. We really liked west plano... but like I said we are both teachers and young so it's WAY out of our price range. I am very new to the Frisco area. Any suggestions of nice neighborhoods in Frisco between $200 - $245K? Hopefully the lower end of $200 .

Thank you!!

Grey Hawk would be a great area for that price range. Nice Rotunda area, parks and pool. Several different builders so more variety in the floorplans than a neighborhood where it's just one or two builders.

Adding to that-I like the Plantation area for 1st time buyers in your price range for Frisco. It's location is in between Coit and Preston just North of 121. There is a golf course for the hubby if he likes to play and a club pool for the neighborhood. I grew up there fishing as a little guy.

For a change of pace, have ya'll talked about living in Richardson at all since you teach there? If so, there is a great established community called Richardson Heights just West of 75 that is primarily made up of mid-century homes built on pier and beam foundations. More and more younger people are moving into this neighborhood and prices should remain at the very least stable if they don't keep appreciating in my opinion. Two tennis courts and a recreation center are a couple of nice additions to this area.

I would second Richardson but the OP said her husband teaches in Lewisville; that is a bear of a commute. Then again so is Richardson from Frisco.

I live in Heights Park (in a mid-century home on a pier and beam near that rec center) so feel free to ask me anything.

He will be in Lewisville for a while & he works much later than I do. Also, I may not be in Richardson much longer. I appreciate all the advice- very helpful! I'm hoping that the commute from Frisco to Richardson- won't be more than 30 or 40 minutes? Am I wrong?

I think you're pretty close to spot on for the commute from Frisco to Richardson give or take 5-10 minutes depending on your strating point and ending point in each city.
