Aubrey is a lovely area, a lot of forest and wooded country estates, horse farms, etc. It has good highway connections to Denton, should be a very short commute.

The 380 corridor from Denton to McKinney is growing fast. Krugerville, which is just before you get to Aubrey has some nice sized lots. Paloma Creek Subdivision has a good school and great houses. Savannah and Providence have great schools in them and good houses, but very small yards and tough HOA. I just bought in The Lakes at Cross Oak Ranch off of 720 going towards Little Elm. Rentals can Range from $600 to $1200 on average in this area. HOA's rule on most newer Subdivisions.

Default Providence and Savannah Communities in Aubrey

I was just wondering why the houses are so inexpensive (comparatively speaking) in the Villages of Providence and the Savannah planned communities in Aubrey. There are a lot of big beautiful houses there for sale for a lot less than $100/square foot. Both of these communities look lovely and well planned.

What is the catch? Are the houses built cheaply? I see that some of the builders are Vision, DR Horton and Choice Homes. I dont know anything about these builders, which is why I am asking. Do the Stepford Wives live there or what?

It seems that they are built well, but insulated poorly. A lot of people have told me that their electric bills are high. The Hoa fees are high, but the ammenity centers are awesome. The yards are super small, not much more than a dog run. Paloma Creek North has much larger yards,lower HOA fees, but not as good ammenity centers. Great school for Paloma Creek, my son loves it.

Tiny lots, tiny yards, narrow streets, houses so close together, it's very far out there, the required white picket fences, siding houses (some like that, but most houses in Dallas area are brick), some of the houses are little itty bitty. There are a lot of foreclosures in both subvisions.

Course they get people out there with the great swimming pools/water slides and the school situation is quite good.

ETA: They also have to pay some MUD tax because they are in an unincorporated area. I'm a little fuzzy on that. Maybe someone else knows what that fee is.
