I was looking at some homes online because I'm interested in living in Garland There are a lot of nice and new homes in Centerville area and I notice there have been a lot of homes being sold there. The houses in this area 2-10 years old, nice view of the lake, bridge. I see a lot of homes being sold in "Shores Of Eastern Hills." this past year. Wondering if there's something going on in the neighborhood that's why people are leaving?

I know there are some old apartments and it's a little bit run down in Centerville.

In the Shores of Eastern Hills, a developer has bought the defunct Eastern Hills Country Club and plans low end housing there. The neighbors are all upset and many are selling. It's too bad since this is a beautiful area with many nice big homes. South Garland in general has gone downhill in the last 20 years and many retailers, grocery stores, etc. have moved out.

Where are you hearing about this? I live close by and for sale signs are still up and it seems like an odd place for low end homes.

I looked it up yesterday because I hadn't been following and was disappointed to hear that.

Looks like the developer is asking for 600ish homes at the $200k level when the original plan was for about 450 homes at the $300-600k range.

The neighbors (many long time Garland movers and shakers) seemed to have organized. But it looks like they're aiming to turn it into an events/park/golf setting. And I'm just not seeing the city or the developer going that route.

I figured it would be a perfect place for a nice little gated community on bigger lots, maybe a cheaper and closer alternative to Sunnyvale. Seems like a bunch of little cookie cutter homes would seem really out of place there to me. I live just on the other side of the little park and I've noticed prices going up a lot lately, enough that we migkt be moving (out of state) in the next year or so. I've loved living here though, its quiet and peaceful even thlough people in general give garland a hard time.
