Soon to be moving to the north Dallas area and am looking for an area to build. I've read great things about Southlake, West Plano, Frisco but I don't think there are any lots available to build our home. Do they become available regularly?

Also, we want to be around shopping and restaurants. We wouldn't mind a short drive to these things (5-10 mins) We also want good schools for the kiddos. If building is out of the question, we wouldn't mind buying a newer home (no less than 5 years) near good shopping and restaurants. Are there similar neighbors to West Plano and Frisco with available lots to build? Our budget is 1.1 million. Thanks

Except an empty lot. Those are sold by developers to Builders and builders do not sell just the lot (in most cases).

You'll need to find where you might want to be and see which builder you might need to deal with.

Land is the hardest thing to find in DFW.

Im not familiar with rich people problems but you would think a 1.1 million dollar budget could get you almost anything a person could want in DFW.

There are several new developments going up in Southlake. You can easily purchase a lot in one of them and build a beautiful house there.

An option is Fairview, I am aware of a few lots available there, typically 1 to 3 acres. This area is near Allen and McKinney and is just east of US 75. If that location is of interest and lot size, you should take a look at it, the schools Lovejoy ISD largely are pretty good but new with less track record than Plano and some of the other more highly aclaimed ISD's. Just another option for you to consider. Welcome to Tx and DFW.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we have
