Thank you. I also thought $135 was higher for FISD home in this zip code, but when the realtor pulled the comps, it seems thats the going rate! I am talking about a 2010 built home in Pasquinellis Willow Crest#3 subdivision

I purchased this year and live in 75093 so I thought that I could maybe shed some light on something besides the schools.

We really like the location of 75093. We are close to pretty much any shopping that we would like circa Park & Preston area, we are only a couple of miles from a Costco, etc. There is also Willow Bend Mall, or just a similar distance away we do have the ability to travel into Frisco and shop there or Stonebriar.

I cannot speak to the schools as I don't have kids yet as I am pretty much a kid myself I feel! but my neighbors have kids that attend Jasper and Plano West and are very happy with the quality of the education that they receive.

We live in a smaller home in 75093 and we did pay upwards of $135/sqft for our home and we purchased in November. It did appraise for more than that for what it is worth.

Note that some far west parts of 75093 might actually zone into Lewisville schools. Can't speak to the quality of those schools however.

Ah I know that subdivision very well. We made an offer on an end of row townhouse on Edith Street back in 2009 in there. We decided to pull our offer on it b/c we felt if we needed to sell in a few year and move to a bigger space then we would not be able to break even as at the time there were no near to completing the subdivision. Prices was in the low $90's per sq ft. So we purchased a single family home for the about the same price per sq ft. elsewhere. Also I was having second thoughts about FISD schools at the time.

I love living here. I am so close to Stonebriar and Shops of Legacy. I can easily hop on 121 or the DNT from where I live. The schools (Haun, Rice, Jasper, WPSH) are great and everything I need is so close. Great day cares, doc office, church, hospitals, restaurants, kids activities etc.

I lived in 75093 before and much more prefer 75024. However 75093 has improved a lot from when I rented there in 2009. That whole NE corner of Park and Preston got a fantastic face lift.

Don't exaggerate just so you can discredit the diffrence. Plano West SH vs Frisco High is more like UTD/UTA vs UNT/Collin College. Now Hockaday/HP High vs Frisco High would be more like Rice vs UNT.

That is why I called you a joker. The OP is talking about Liberty High that had 15 NMSF. Any school that puts that number is not a community college. Just curious, what will you call Dallas ISD, Duncanville schools, etc?

Although we live in PISD area, I agree with frenzyrider. Frisco schools get beaten up a lot on these forums but they are just fine for the most part. Liberty high feeders definitely have a very bright future ahead. It will just take a few more years for the reputation to catch up.

I don't know. May be you called me a joker because you are an ill mannered person and can't agree to disagree and don't know how to get your point across without getting personal. You are the one who should think about your out of line response. You can make your point and move on, no need to get emotional.

NO. Because people like you make statements without reading the original post and start making claims without any fact finding...

Oh yeah I agree. But I did not KNOW that then! I am still happy with my choice though now. Who knew we would get Toyota and all these other things driving up housing prices.
