**another new poster pushing a PW agenda*** Thanks gripewater....we can spot your posts a mile a way now. (basing on your pushing of PISD or the "highway") in your previous threads.


For what its worth, you have just described Frisco/McKinney and Allen. There are plenty of resale homes and also new homes available. I would "hardly" call crossing over the 121 into Frisco and McKinney (less than a mile)..."far flung subdivisions".

Gunther---sure far flung, the northern part of Collin county... NO.


To the OP, Richwoods hollow is served by Mcspedden, Vandeventer and will go to Independence (opening this year). The area has a large south Asian population in general, which is a nice thing for meeting people, but not so overpowering that you feel like you are in little india.

There have been some "sly comments made" that richwoods is another castle hills. But so what? If the home fits your budget, needs, wants and you cannot beat the location to the freeways..Plus the excellent schools. I say go for it. I have a couple of friends who went over there and they have been nothing but pleased. The amenities are good, the clubhouse is nice. If it was that "awful", there wouldn't be so much construction happening in frisco.

And for what its worth, Frisco isn't as inexpensive as its made out to be on the boards. The home price we were looking at (even deposited on) in richwoods was at about 525k. We decided to go in a different direction and wait it out and see what lots opened up late this year. That same home is now listed close to 600k (in a matter of 4 months).

Yes the lots are small, but they are going to be small regardless in frisco. I don't think you go into places like richwoods, phillips creek ranch, newman village with a huge lot in mind, you go in for the lifestyle and amenities and finding a floor plan that meets your budget and requirements.

I say this as an Indian myself, I have yet to find any fault within the FISD school system. In fact, I know more people skipping PW altogether and coming to Plano senior or straight up to frisco.

If you are looking for some breathing room, I think you will be able to find something in McKinney or Allen, but I think Allen is a more pricey.

I think being close to a freeway also is pretty priceless and that will work in your favor in the long run. Rest is up to you....I am sure you have made your decision since the thread is almost a year old, but it may provide valuable information for someone still searching. And by now that 370k price is prob at 400k--or MORE.

It seems that YOU are the one pushing Frisco. Just looked at your older posts. Why are you sitting put and watching prices go up $75k when you have everything figured out.

It doesn't applied for that division , it has already great schools , it is next to 121 , between 75 and the tollway , close to many businesses ,resale won't be an issue. The 4 corners between McKinney , Allen, Plano and Frisco is booming. You have also to think that many people thought the same thing about Plano less than 15 years ago, and about Richardson before that.

Why do the moderators allow people to keep creating new screennames? GripeWater has had about 10 screennames on here & this "Renu.Uner" is simply the latest one. What is the point of creating different SN's if it's the same person talking about how great Plano is?
