Village Lakes in Frisco Texas has some Hot Real Estate Deals

Village lakes in FriscoVillage Lakes in Frisco off of Teel Street was one of the quickest selling communities in North Dallas this summer. Both First Texas Homes and Meritage Homes wrote a total of 67 contracts from the beginning of January through the end of July.

That is an average of close to 10 homes a month in this one neighborhood alone in Frisco! As of today only 6 homes are left in this community and both builders have drastically dropped their prices to sell the homes quickly.

Village Lakes is a master-planned community in close proximity to the North Dallas North Tollway and Highway 121. It features custom homes on 65′ x 116′ homesites and also larger homesites if requested were available. Located in West Frisco, Village Lakes offers quick access to fine dining, movie theatres, malls and fabulous shopping. It is also a ten minute drive to the new In-N-Out Burger in Frisco off of Preston. Village Lakes feeds into the renowned Frisco Independent School District as another big plus for the community.Frisco Home

The salespeople for the builders said that the buyer was looking first for Frisco, then for the most house for the money. The homes do not compare to Darling Homes, but give you exactly what you pay for. And averaging at around $90 a square foot, I would say this is the place for the most home for your money.

Another quick tip, Darling will be building with Highland Homes in one of the newest communities in Frisco called Lawler Park.  The opening is slated for the end of 2012.

On July 1st in Frisco something took place that not too many people know about.  A building imploded.

After a two hour wait, the Collin power plant came down in just seconds.  WFAA said that two out of fourteen explosives didn’t go off on the first try.  The head project engineer comments were very odd to me at the time regarding why there was a problem on the first round, but I get it now.

He blamed it on the weather.  This was before we started the 30+ days in a row topping over 100 degrees.  He said the heat magnifies on the steel and really causes things to melt and create problems when blowing up buildings.  The Plano bomb squad was called in for the second try, which was a success.
