The place is terrible. The foreclosures are because the people who bought as an investment could not keep renters because they were so harassed and the ones that bought wanted out so bad that they walked away just to get out of Craig Ranch. The place is a nightmare!
RUN! Dont walk. RUN away from any home in Craig Ranch. Just drive through the neighborhoods and you will find 3-10 houses on every street with a for sale sign in the yard.
Everyone wants out. We moved and are so glad we got away from that horrible HOA and neighborhood.
As stated by the previous agents, Cooper is separate fee.
There are a lot of townhomes for sale. Many short sales and likely soon many foreclosures as well. Nice place and nice area, just tons of homes on the market. Likely not any more town homes than other homes in the area. As with many other area neighborhoods lots of people use high financing amounts or rolled in closing costs and appliances. The market has not moved and is perhaps now down slightly under initial purchase price. Add a 8-10% selling cost to the transaction and you can quickly see the buyes are now upside down on the purchase thus the short sales. If you plan to stay a while or forever this might be a nice option for you if you live and work nearby. Another option that might be a slightly different play are the condos in old downtown Plano. These should have nice appeal in the future due to the proximity of the DART light rail.....slightly longer drive for you, but still an option. Let me know if I can help.
