Frisco, TX Homes – Ten Reasons to Buy One Right Now

Frisco has become extremely popular in the past 10 years primarily because of its proximity to the Dallas area cities.  Dallas has always grown north. First, there was north Dallas, then Addison, Richardson, Plano and now Frisco.  One can reside in a Frisco home and commute to almost anywhere around the metroplex within an hour.  Last month, Frisco surpassed the 100,000 population mark.Second, is the highway system that has its major hub in Frisco.  The Dallas North Toll road could be considered the spinal cord of Collin County’s north-south mobility while the newly completed #121 called the Sam Rayburn Toll road is the east-west artery.  Downtown Dallas and the DFW International Airport are both only 30 minutes away.  So, Frisco is now central to all of the Dallas area; easy in and easy out! Whether you enjoy baseball, soccer or golf, Frisco invites you to enjoy them all in the incredible sports venues! Catch the Dallas Stars hockey team practicing at the Dr Pepper Star Center, the Frisco Roughriders baseball at Dr Pepper Ballpark, the Texas Tornado when they return to the Dr Pepper Arena this fall or experience golf at one of many challenging courses. Frisco is home to three unique golf courses: The Trails of Frisco, The Tom Fazio course at The Westin Stonebriar and Plantation Golf Club. Each offers a challenge to the avid golf enthusiast. In most instances, the courses can accommodate your tee time requests. You can also enjoy the spectacular new Pizza Hut Park and an exciting FC Dallas major league soccer game. Fourth, Frisco home property taxes are among the lowest in the metroplex.  At $2.06 per hundred of value compared to Prosper at $2.52, McKinney at $2.43 and Richardson at $2.49.  As you can see, this city is fiscally well managed.The Frisco Independent School District is one of the top rated ones among surrounding cities.  It is rated in 2009 as a “Recognized District” compared to only “Acceptable” for the McKinney ISD, the Plano ISD and the Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD.  The FISD rating is a chief reason to buy a Frisco home.Six, retail shopping has been one of the critical reasons for Frisco’s explosive population growth since the famous Stonebriar Mall opened its doors a decade ago.  This mall is the largest mall in the metroplex and one if not the most successful malls in the entire metroplex.  On any given day, one can see many Oklahoma license plates in the parking area.The Frisco Chamber of Commerce is one of the most popular and successful chambers in Collin County with its 300+ membership.  A Frisco home would be most desirable if you are a small business owner or a home based business requiring a vibrant networking group.If filling your spiritual needs is important to you, Frisco has incredible churches.  The recently opened Stonebriar Church at Preston Road and Legacy is an architectural marvel seating over 1000 and boasts a music program that rivals the Dallas Symphony!  If you are not into a large church, Frisco has over two dozen smaller churches from which to choose.Nine, presently Frisco homes for sales represent a huge inventory making it a super buyer’s market.  Only last week end I showed 11 homes for sale in one subdivision.  The last time I checked there were over 2000 listed homes on the multiple listing service.  There is no reason to fear values long term because of all the reasons cited here explaining Frisco’s popularity and growth.And last but not least, Frisco has at least 35 subdivisions ranging from the most expensive such as Starwood and Stonebriar to others in the $300,000 to $500,000 such as the Fairways and Trails and many, many subdivisions with homes under $300,000.
