I can't see why not! I grew up in Greenville Texas in a stucco home that was built in 1924! I've never known of any problem with stucco, especially what you're calling "real" stucco. The cheap stucco (can't think of the name) has had some problems, but even then I'm not aware of any that should keep you from purchasing the home, especially since you're having the stucco specifically inspected. Best to you and enjoy your new home!

My motto is "Serving Dallas Metro And Beyond". Let me know if I can assist you with your upcoming purchase.
Some but not many.
Some people like them, some don't.
Toll Brothers is generally a great builder.
They still build some Stucco if I remember correctly.
Make sure you do a great stucco inspection.
I like these homes too. Let us know if we can help.
Here's a few more for you to consider if you like Dallas
There are also some in Irving around Riverside Drive, and some other communities.
You should find an inspector who is willing to give you a definitive go/no-go on whether the stucco was done properly, since they do have a reputation.
Your insurance agent can also give you some guidance on getting proper coverage, after inspection, to protect against possible claims.
I would suggest that you talk to your agent about this. This is a pre-owned home so I'm assuming you have an agent on your side and you absolutely have to communicate your concern with her. However, if you are not working with an agent, then I'd be happy to assist you and give you advice on what to do.
Las Colinas is a wonderful place to live, I always have clients looking into the area as well as Coppell.
Let me know if you need assistance!

At that price point, I'm guessing you're buying in Las Colinas. An equally, if not more important, issue in Las Colinas is the foundation. If you're using an agent, they should be able to ascertain the 'general' condition of the foundation...you dont' want to pay for an engineer if the house has obvious structural flaws. But, agents aren't engineers. I can send you some names if you like.
I am the owner/broker of one of Dallas' oldest and most successful Exclusive Buyer Agencies, HelpUBuy America. We charge a flat-fee for our services, so our fee is the same regardless of whether you buy a $150,000 home or a $500,000 home. This eliminates the conflict of interest that exists when you an agent is paid a commission based on the sales price of the home.
We've been protecting the rights of first-time homebuyers since 1995, and we'd love to assist you. I've also had a book published on Amazon called Buying a Home: Don't Let Them Make a Monkey Out of You. It'll be the best $7 you've ever spent.
