Thanks for the tip. Can you give me specific streets or a link? I'm having trouble locating a neighborhood called Tulane; just finding apartments and condos.

Many thanks~

The Tulane neighborhood gets it's name from Tulane Dr in 75093. The area is between Preston and Coit , and Park and Parker . One of the subdivision is called Highland of Preston Ridge , the other one is Wentworth Estates , the second one has cheaper house . It is a very nice and well establish neighborhood , it is very coveted by people working downtown and also by people working around the metroplex , the tollway is close by , it is very much central and next to almost everything Plano has to offer. The excellent elementary school is Hightower .

Check out 5929 Westmont Drive in West Plano. You can see more pictures if you goggle it and check out all major listing sites. This looks like an ideal option for your price range. It comes with a good location, good schools and a POOL.

That house is backing on Midway , that's a huge negative and a very busy road. I wouldn't bother . The price is low for the construction probably due to Midway.

Midway corridor is an awesome location and homes are out of OP's budget. There are so many positives to this house and just one issue of noise... no harm in a 15 minute visit. We all have to compromise somewhere when buying a house. I would't mind checking it out.

The Midway area is nice but the houses backing Midway have lost value once it became a main traffic road .My best friend was highly discouraged by her agent to buy one . The noise is really bad , even on weekends .I had myself the same issue while looking for houses on the north part of Preston Meadow past Legacy , you could not stay five minutes in the backyards . You can always do repair , but there is nothing you can do about the street noise when you need to put your house on the market.

There are buyers out there for all kind of houses and after buying this low, they can still sell it at a decent price in future when market picks up. Important thing is to visit it at rush time and hear if it's an issue for them or not. This can be their ticket to a good home in an upscale area but of course it's not every one's cup of tea.
