Yup, what goes up just keeps going up right? When everything is at all times highs, that is when you wait.
If you have no choice, by all means buy now. If you have a choice, waiting will be the smarter bet. Especially in that price range and that area. To each their own though.

Thanks!
My husband works there, drop a line we'll be happy to help. CrossRoads, Oak Point and Aubrey have homes with 1 and 5 acre lots with trees and easy access to Lake Lewisville. Denton which is close by, is a college town with TWU and UNT, music and theatre as well. Welcome Back to Texas!

If your price range is over $400,000 Prosper would be the better choice in my opinion.Prosper's estimated build out population is roughly 62,000.Celina will be over 300,000 as will cities like Frisco and Mc Kinney.Our initial reason for choosing prosper over other places was the smaller build out,overall large lot sizes and town feel.Our biggest complaint about living here in Texas has been the weather and how it makes it difficult to be an outdoors person.We have loved everything about living in Prosper.Being removed from the hustle and bustle of DFW "all the way up here" is probably what kept us living in Texas this long.I have loved being just close enough to big ameneties and shopping while still being just far enough away if that makes sense.


Suggestion...Willow Ridge,Cedar Ridge and La Cima have homes with lots close to 1/3 acre on the east side of Preston.If we were purchasing all over again we would still choose to be right off Preston and no where near Windsong Ranch or 380.

Howard said the city’s population stands at around 12,000. By 2020, that number is expected to grow to 30,000, and a decade later to 100,000.
At that point, “We will be (the same population that) Frisco was two years ago,” he said.
By 2050, with an estimated 345,000 residents, Celina will likely be the second largest city in Collin County, following McKinney.
So it's going to be 20,000 in 3 years. Then in 2030, it'll be 100k. Then in the next 20 years, add 245,000 people. Frisco is growing pretty fast - has only added about 60k people since 2010. That estimate is off by about 100k-150k people for 2050.

And there are questions about the highway extensions and water system expansions that will even fund that kind of growth....

Not only that, Celina is slightly smaller in area than Plano, which is among the most dense cities in Texas. So people will be willing to live at about 5k people per sq mile in a far out exurb between 2030-2050, making Celina among the densest cities in TX (the max density for current cities in TX is about 3k per sq mile) and way more dense than Frisco, McKinney, or any of the other exurbs. Not sure I believe that.

You are right but what do we care, most of us aren't going to be around by 2050 eitherway.

That's right. When Elon Musk invents magic, 80 will be middle aged.

If human governments aren't going to subsidize cure for aging and immortality then what do we have subsidies for?
