My wife and I are looking at subdivisions where we could get into that have, or are convenient to a community pool, park, and walking trails. We would like to spend less than 200k. We are specifically looking at communities similar to Plantation Resorts. We are moving from the East Coast and we like the tree lined streets, the community pool, playground, etc.

Can anyone provide other subdivisions that we should consider in West Plano or Frisco? Thanks so much.

For under 200k, West Plano will be ruled out. If your work location isn't far from Frisco or Plano then there are newly built neighborhoods in Frisco and Little Elm that might be a good fit for you. You're not going to get the tree lined streets out there, but you'll have to determine what you are willing to give up at that price point.

The Plantation is a great community in Central Frisco that is located around a golf course also. There are quite a few neighborhoods that offer community pools in Frisco....i.e. Hidden Cove, Preston Vineyards, Frisco Heights etc.

Find the help of a good local Realtor to sift through what works for you. With that said, leasing a home here for 6 months to a year might be more beneficial so you don't feel rushed into making a decision without living in the area and really getting a feel for where you want to live.

@Ryan... Love your status. I know the feeling.

@OP, I think your keyword here that is going to limit your search is "tree lined". Frisco doesn't have many streets that are tree lined except for Plantation Resort because it was built in the early 90s. Most other neighborhoods don't have the mature landscaping yet.

I will add a few more communities to Ryan's list for you to consider if you decide to forego the above.

King's Garden, Preston Highland, Preston Lakes, Queens Gate (these are patio homes), Meadow Hill, Grayhawk, The Trails (only a handful in this one below 200K), Panther Creek. A few others, but I think you get the the idea that you will have an array of neighborhoods to choose from.

I also second Ryan's suggestion of renting for a few months so you can familiarize yourself with neighborhoods and surrounding cities before you buy.

For Plano neighborhoods, there are only a couple, Ridgeview (falls under Frisco school district), there are also some foreclosures in other neighborhoods but they would need updating and they usually stay on the market less than a week.
