If you work from home, Light Farms isn't a great place to be. The cell reception is awful as are the available Internet options. I would have chosen Light Farms myself when I bought my home but I require fast and reliable Internet due to my telecommuting position.

Although it's possible things have improved in the past year. But always look into available Internet options before moving somewhere especially if your livelihood depends on it.

Back and forth between Windsong, Light Farms, Lakes of Prosper, Prairie View (Prosper ISD), Mustang Lakes (Prosper ISD) and the upcoming Star Trail community.

Main concern is buying at the top of the market in a community that is 50% or less built out.
I have done a lot of research anamd closing on a home in lakes of prosper. The community stands out, will walk to frontier park on a trail right outside my house, new elementary school in south side of light farms will be walk.
Lower taxes and no pid or mud, water is cheaper than celina. These three factors alone can increases your affordability of a home by $30-40k for the same monthly payment.

This has been a concern.. I hate what's offered in that area.

Where did you end up buying?

I was just going to say... Half of this forum are 40+ easily (I can tell by the millennial hate). Everyone plans for the long term, when chances are, they will move long before anything happens.

All of my neighbors who got lucky on timing in Frisco, sold and said "IMMA GONNA DO IT AGAIN IN CELINA". Stop trying to act like the smartest person in the room. Enjoy the windfall you received by incredible luck and don't think you are a real estate mogul.

Here's the buying signal for new home purchases right now, yes any new home that can be purchased at $400K or close to it is a great deal! The best area is bounded by Hwy 423 to the west Hwy 380 to the south and Custer Rd. to the east up to Celina's city limits to the north.

Right now, the new residential development at Prosper Trail and east of the Dallas North Tollway has Grand Opening prices homes with 55' lots start at $374K, 1,800 s.f. to 2450 s.f. and homes with 65' lots start at $427K, 2430 s.f. to 3000 s.f. These prices were increased $5K last week, so keep talking and you will definitely be paying more!

Remember, two major hurricanes have hit Texas, Florida and some Caribbean islands were totally destroyed, materials will certainly go up in price and labor will be hard to find and wages will for certain increase dramatically! Trump also imposed a tariff on Canadian lumber and basically has stopped undocumented immigrant construction labor from Mexico - brilliant!

Be smart and look hard this weekend, buy intelligently, these price ranges will soon disappear, buying a new home is like trying to time the stock market! Best advice is don't buy a home for an investment, buy yourself and your family a nice new home to enjoy and live in. Location, location and schools win out!
