What do we like and not like about the Heatherwood development in McKinney?

Are families making this home or is it mainly starter homes, investor/rental type stuff?

Thanks!

I just went to their website. It is in the far north area of McKinney. Very new area.
I am not sure what to say about whether there will be mainly families or investors or both.
The homes are reasonably priced and I would think they would be mostly starter homes or for people to retire. I do know that Horizon makes a good house. My husband has worked for this builder before and he was always impressed at the good value the homes present. However, I would not recommend having vinyl flooring in any area, it is hard to clean!!
I think you made a good choice. I don't know much about Prosper schools. If I were you I would look for jobs north of McKinney. Most people don't really look up there but there are jobs to be had, esp. in Sherman. Plus you would be going against traffic.

Anyone live in or around the Heatherwood development in McKinney? We've contracted to build a home in Phase 2 but since we are from Chicago, I'd love some additional insight into how people on this board 'feel' about that particular area of McKinney and that development in particular if possible.

Thanks!!

Alaina,

I used to be a sales counselor in Heatherwood since inception for one of the builders. I'd be happy to tell you everything I know. PM me. I can also introduce you to some of the homeowners there as they are good friends by now.

Thanks,
T. Hayley

My only concern about any community in that area (Heatherwood/Robinson Ridge/Waterside) is there is only 1 two-lane road that goes directly up there (Lake Forest). There are some back roads, but that's coming from Prosper, or farm roads from McKinney. I see they are planning to extend Wilmeth road in the next few years coming from 75/121. Keep in mind they are also building a Baylor hospital on the NW corner of 380 & Lake Forest so the town will need to expand the roads soon.

In your opinions, Would this be considered a poverty level, low-income or low middle-class area (North McKinney - Heatherwood Development)? What about the surrounding areas? Is there any section 8 housing?

Thanks!

I just moved to Heatherwood. I love it but have lived in the area for a long time. Prosper schools are great. No sec 8 that I know of. Great people.

We're considering building in Heatherwood also. Moving from MI, so don't know anything about McKinney or Heatherwood. How is crime, lawn maintenance in the community?? Thanks!

Default Heatherwood

Hello,

The crime rate is low (I think) Lawns in the neighbor hood look nice and that is required by the HOA. The park and pool area are kept up nicely. We had our home built by Pioneer Homes, Love them!
