Frisco has a mass amount of rental homes.Frisco has very small lot sizes overall.Property taxes are some of the lowest in the metroplex and there are many houses available under $180,000. Rents on houses are reasonable, more so than in suburbs like Fairview, Southlake, Colleyville,Prosper or Flower mound for example. Frisco attracts alot of transplants,many who are here in Trxas temporarily. Red some forums on here describing Frisco. It is a wonderful,safe suburb...just not a good fit for everyone

Default affordable towns similar to Grapevine/ Flower Mound

We are relocating to the area next year. Hubby currently works out of Farmer's Branch area, but is still based here at home in North Carolina. I have been trying to decide on a town to move to within a 30 minute commute of his work, with a good middle school/ high school for a son whos starting middle next year. Problem is all the "highly recommended" places on these forums tend to be what I consider VERY expensive. We are in the less than 200k price range ..What towns have this?? I've liked Flower Mound, Richardson, Grapevine, Highland Village etc..in searching the web before..where else can I be looking?
Thanks
FYI info: we are originally from California, been in NC for 8 yrs. I love gardening, chickens, nature walks so parks/ nature preserves close is nice.

One of my favorite areas under $200k is Lewisville. It's just east of Flower Mound.

There are places in Frisco in this price range also that would be a 30 minute commute.

I agree Frisco is a long commute to Las Colinas. We love Frisco and will be moving to Frisco soon. It just a great location for us. However, I will be commuting to Las Colinas from Frisco. The job offer came after I bought the house so in short you cannot control where you work but you can control where you live to a larger extent. FM just did not appeal to us with all around difficulties in commuting "out" of it in the first place... lol. We love the access in Frisco and it is a great fit for us. Some generic sterotypical comments on Frisco "shopping at foreever 21, etc" just shows the extreme to which haters go on this forum and hence, their recommendation is really worth that much. Lot of young executives live in that side of the metroplex and I have interacted with many. It is sorrounded by beautiful burbs such as Prosper, McKinney, Allen and Plano... we love that area.

Oh it sucks that you bought in Frisco and job is in LC. Anyways, jobs change and things happen, that is the reason people like to live in central locations. People who pay unnecessary attention to other people's clothing would be worse neighbors than ones who wear FE21 clothing. Ignore them.

haha.. Yes. But then I listen to (read) books on audible.com so it should be okay... moreover, people who live in centralized locations will always commute whereas there are tremendous opportunities in Plano / Frisco/ Richardson areas as well.. My ideal location was Las Colinas when we were looking but the soil and school situation did not work for us
