We are looking at moving to one one these areas.

Correct me if I am wrong. Frisco is busy, lots of traffic and higher RE prices than the others.

Prosper, expensive RE, but nice a quiet.

Melissa, very developed, lots of houses, as one said, boxes in a row.

Little Elm hard to get to and from, lots of traffic and some drug issues in town.

What would you recommend and why? I am retired, no need to commute, new comstruction under $160,000.

Thanks

You will find it difficult buying anything in Prosper in the price range you mention. Frisco will be difficult but possible. There are several homes off Hillcrest in East Frisco falling in that price range. If you are stuck on a new build and want West Frisco you could look into Meadowcreek (423 & Main) or Grayhawk on Eldorado. My advice would be to stay away from anything on Eldorado in Frisco & Little Elm all together. The traffic is unreal and while it will get help eventually, that doesn't help you now. Super Target and Walmart have just opened on the already congested 2 lane Eldorado. Personally, I do not like 95% of Little Elm. The homes off Walker are going to rentals very quickly. Drive through in the middle of the night and there are people wandering around which is strange for a suburb.

Frisco is chock full of young families. You will find very few retirees. There is a nice and relatively new senior center and also a bus service that takes seniors around town. If you want 0 yard you may also try Queen's Gate which is located on Rolater behind the Preston Kroger. It has several older residents there for certain. You should be able to find something in your price range there.

By the way, the smaller homes in Frisco always move fast. You should do okay on your investment in Frisco. Homes in Little Elm or Melissa definitely will not have as much interest or move as quickly. The other great thing I wanted to mention about the area off Hillcrest in Frisco is that it's very central to everything in Frisco. You can be at the mall, area restaurants, the new fitness center, newly built tollway or really anything in just a few minutes. The traffic is MUCH better in that area compared to the northwest section of town.

Try Frisco Lake by Del Webb. They have homes in your price range.

Yes, you can find something in Frisco Lakes but tiny--1500 sf with ZERO (I do mean 0) upgrades will put you in about 160. If you need something immediately they have something ready to go for 195.

Hi Greg & Vicky,

Are you both retired? If you are I would suggest considering Forney. It is growing in a great direction with preserving home values by building upscale shopping centers & attracting quailty developments. It is very nice & quiet here with a bit of the country feel with a lot of hometown spirit. We are also the Antique captial and have many interesting places to visit and browse. We have regular subdivisions and many custom homes on acre homesites which fit your price range.
