Help the community by answering this question:


Demographics are a tough topic, because the current population may not be in a position to afford a $370k house in the Fate area, but there are many people who would buy who don't currently live there. While averages are interesting statistics, they do not reflect the robustness or breadth of the accessible market.
Anyone who considers Fate within commuting distance of his job is a potential customer (not just the current residents of Fate). Nearby Heath, for example, really doesn't have any houses as low as $370k. They start around that. An enclave of expensive homes ($350K+) could be successful in Fate, since they already have some. Just remember that the same home in north Dallas would bring in a million+, so if they're not shopping at Preston Center, they may buy in Fate.

I live in Rockwall, which is 5 minutes from Fate. The price range of homes in that area are between 100K - 280K. Homes do not go up to $370K in that area, they do in Rockwall. 280K will get you 5 bedrooms a generous amount of land acre or more and approx 3800 sq ft. I am a Real Estate Broker in the area, and will be happy to assist in any way. If you have any additional questions please feel free to call my office 972-961-7438. Valerie Alfred

For a pro like you....no problem...but the median home price for the metroplex is probably more like $150,000, so that's more than double the median. My thought is that starting price is optomistic for the mass market.
