Hey all! In our home search, we have stumbled on some homes in the custom section of The Villages of Woodland Springs. What does everybody think? Specifically, I am speaking of the area just south of W Caylor, including Maplewood, Yellow Wood, Water Oak, Soapberry, and Almond. We are familiar with the tracks and all that entails, but are wondering how bearable it would be? Is this a neighborhood where values are continuing to fall?

Budget is around 230-260, and there seem to be various choices in that area.

Thanks!

if you run search there are posts about Woodland Springs here

I just know that last year, my realtor said there were LOTS of houses for sale there--that getting a listing was almost a hardship
but some of them are very pretty homes and were well built compared to other tract homes--they have trees as well...
there are + / - to living in that area of Keller--
make sure you know where school zones are---and that could change over time as well-
construction on the 377 is working its way north and south--
rail traffic will probably increase due to gas prices
there is new development going in north of Mt. Gilead which is east but will add more traffic in general area...
retail has grown out there--but traffic is really pretty bad--and I would worry about some of the zoning--that area of Woodland Springs is FTW city not Keller...

That particular part of Woodland springs is nice, but as the previous poster mentioned, there are alot of homes for sale in there(but really where ISN'T there alot for sale). Other than the downfalls that you mentioned, one thing to think about is that you would be in the top part of the price range for the neighborhood. It's usually better to ride the coat-tail of the more expensive homes and try to get in a neighborhood on the low end. However, I know the homes are very nice because I have a friend that lives in that very section.

Other than the amenities that the neighborhood offers, have you thought about looking on the other side of 377? you could definitely get a nice home in that price range in Keller proper without having to deal with the tracks or the new homes(for resale).

Some other nice neighborhoods are Heritage and Saratoga that have that custom feel with the amenities that VOWS has.

I live in Saratoga, but DO really like the area you are speaking of....It is difficult to get that much housing value- along with mature trees and a good sized lot as you do there. If something were available when we moved here, we may hae gone that way...that said- there are deals to be had everywhere.
