Little Elm VS Paloma Creek

Asked by Dustin H, 75019 Wed May 23, 2012

Trying to decide between Paloma Creek and Little Elm.. I'm thinking Paloma just because of traffic being so dumb in Little Elm. I feel like I can get a cheaper house in Little Elm though. Any thoughts???

Good call Dustin. You are correct about Little Elm. You get more bang...for your buck! The development is what you are investing in. That is what attracts Buyers/Tenants like yourself. No need to gamble on a outer-lying area to hold you hostage for 10+ years. Think what Little Elm is going to be like in 10 years! You will have options. Those homes are being built at a quality level and the area is properly zoned for a long-run. Plus - you have the benefit of children being able to attend Frisco ISD. My uncle owns Frisco Wholesale Lumber, Inc. They provide the wood for those builders. Give me a call or a direct email if you want to go check them out and get a better feel for the area.

Best,
Hunt

Little Elm and Paloma are both great communities. In reality it is going to be what you as the buyer prefers. I would recommend checking out all the builders and what type of product they build. As other agents have pointed out the cost of fuel has been on the rise and could be a determining factor. There are great homes all over the metroplex...it is what you want and what fits into your budget as well. If you have any questions or want to see some great homes in those areas just give me a buzz! I have sold several in the Little Elm area. I will say it seems to be a pretty popular area right now. Fee free to contact me at any time. I am happy to help!

We have a 2yr old son and we don't plan on being there more than 10 yrs. I think for resale Paloma would be better and we don't want to build a new home yet. I think being a little further in Paloma wouldn't matter for gas because there isn't as much stop and go since its off 380.. I guess the only thing holding me close to Little Elm is the development in the area as far as shopping and dining.

Are schools a determining factor for you?

Traffic in Little Elm is crazy, but I have friends that live there and they like it very much. I live close to that area and like this smaller town feel myself. I like being close enough to the big city to enjoy it anytime but love that I'm in a safe community. Good luck on your search!

I've sold a lot in Paloma creek and my preference is Paloma creek because the houses are built very tight and extremely energy efficient. The only difference I can see is preowned in little elm you might get more square feet but sacrifice some quality. Exceptions for some higher end neighborhoods of course. Please call, email or text me and I will be happy to assist you with your search. If you do decide to go new remember the golden rule, do not go without your realtor!!! I can't stress that enough. Your home purchase is probably the most important purchase you'll ever make and choosing not to be represented would be like being charged with murder telling the police everything you know then asking for a lawyer and expecting him to get you off! It doesn't work, once the salesperson gets you talking price (what they are suppose to do) ther is nothing any agent can do to undo it and get price reductions incentives and upgrades! Good luck and I hope to hear from you!

Where is your buyers agent? FYI the home in Little Elm COULD be less expensive HOWEVER the cost of gaoline for the commute and etc could be so costly that a home closer could be less expensive in overall monthly budget.

Many 2nd tier cities example Little Elm are GREAT communities however for resale value many families can no longer afford to live further out based on increase of gasoline .
