Niche_(Company)_LogoNiche.com has listed the Best Suburbs to Buy a House in Texas and Grand Homes builds in six of the top ten!

According to Niche.com, “Niche ranks US suburbs based on home values, property taxes, housing costs, and age of new home buyers. A high ranking indicates that a suburb attracts residents with a good housing market where property taxes and housing costs are in line with value.”

DFW is in the midst of the hottest housing market ever! Take a look at the following ‘burbs and see which one strikes your fancy!

McKinney – #9
McKinney offers a quaint Historic Downtown area, plenty of parks, shopping and entertainment opportunities as well as a loaded community event calendar. McKinney has also been named the #1 Best Place to Live by Money Magazine. McKinney is located 30 miles north of Dallas. We have three communities in the award-winning city – Sorrellwood Park, Shiloh Ranch and Estates of Verona.

tribThe Colony – #8
The Colony is home to the AMAZING Tribute Lakeside Golf and Resort Community. The Tribute is a premier, master planned community that hugs the shores of Lake Lewisville and features amenity centers, a splash park, resort-style pool, playgrounds, an on-site K-8 STEM Academy, golf courses, six miles of hike and bike trails and so much more!

Wylie – #7
We are closing out Parkside in Wylie and welcoming the Dominion of Pleasant Valley! Coming later this year, our newest community will feature an amenity center with a swimming pool, parks, playgrounds and three miles of hike and bike trails. Also in Wylie, Creekside Estates is nestled among the trees and grassy meadows near Southfork Ranch. Wylie is known as the ‘City Between the Lakes’ (said lakes being Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard) and is one of the fastest growing cities in Collin County.

allenAllen – #4
The City of Allen is also a fast-growing suburb that has earned its fair share of accolades including Best City for Young Families (ApartmentList.com), Top Ten DFW Suburbs (D Magazine), 2nd in Best Cities for First Time Home Buyers (WalletHub) and more! The Landings of Kittyhawk and Cumberland Crossing are in the middle of new shopping, dining and entertainment venues and with easy access to the Sam Rayburn Tollway and Highway 75 the rest of DFW is just a short drive away.

Frisco – #3
Frisco is a sports-lover’s dream! Currently home to four pro and minor league teams, Frisco is soon to have a new team in town – the Dallas Cowboys! With great schools and plenty of entertainment, Frisco is a fantastic city to raise a family. The Traditions of Frisco is now in closeout but the Dominion at Panther Creek and Hills of Kingswood each have important qualities. Dominion of Panther Creek is chock-full of family-oriented amenities and the gated Hills of Kingswood offers a private haven with luxury in mind.

little elmLittle Elm – #1
Also along the shores of Lake Lewisville is Little Elm. This town is experiencing major growth but works hard to maintain its appealing small town charm. Little Elm boasts the largest beach in North Texas and easy access to major highways. Frisco Hills is located within the Frisco ISD boundaries and is just 35 miles away from downtown Dallas.

The new school will be located at The Tribute, a 1,500-acre master planned lakeside golf and resort community, in The Colony.

“The partnership forged with our local developers makes this a win-win for all involved. We are very excited to offer this innovative approach to learning for our community,” said Lynne Leuthard, superintendent of schools. “On the heels of announcing our new Digital Learning Initiative, the Academy will extend our vision of preparing our students for global success.”

Sally Coleman, LEISD Board President, indicated that the decision to open the Academy follows 18-months of research, including site visits by parents and staff to other schools across the state. Parents and community members also shaped the decision, studying several different magnet school concepts this past school year. (more…)
