Driving through the subdivision it appeared maybe a half-dozen or so are actually being lived in (evidenced by "stuff" - potted plants, decorations, stuff in yards). And another half-dozen that are finished without any signs in front (which originally led me to believe there were more residents, but the visit to fbcad makes me question that). But there are many more with "sold" signs out front - signs that have been there for months and the homes appearing to be ready-to-move-into.

I was not happy to see a Centex neighborhood going up next to mine, but since it is there, I hope the development is successful. The lake is nice and I am glad to have it so close to me for weekend strolls.
Hi Cla,

What is your experience with King Lakes? We are about to close a deal but we are concern about the community. The playground and pool looks cheap and we wonder about Centex Homes (now Pulte Homes)

They showed us a home witha a "SOLD" sign out front. They told us it was a mistake but I wonder it is a way to make the potential home buyers look like "everything is selling really well"

What are the advantages of having a small community. I know there are around 400 homes at KL vs 11K+ at cinco. The taxes are almost the same but the houses are around 10% cheaper (for the same 300K home in Cinco, at KL is $270).

So, what do you think of KL so far. Do you regret not buying at Cinco Ranch?
