Home Buying in McKinney>Question Details

Carmen Hogan, Home Buyer in Massachusetts

We are moving to Mckinney Texas and need some general information on the area.

Asked by Carmen Hogan, Massachusetts Wed Jul 9, 2008

I would really like to know what neighborhoods to look in. I have some idea about Stonebridge Ranch but it is so big I hardly scratched the surface when visiting and looking at homes. I know the schools are fantastic and the shopping is great.

You cannot go wrong buying in Stonebridge Ranch. Very scenic, great schools, great neighborhoods, golf, tennis and pools. It is the prime location in McKinney.

I would love to help you out if you aren't working with a Realtor currently! I moved here 9 years ago to McKinney from the north and know all about the stresses of a move to a new area. I have seen the growth of McKinney firsthand, and in that time completely fell in love with our home! If you visit my website : matt.haloagent.com , you will find my contact information. I can help you find a home in Stonebridge or within any other McKinney neighborhood that may meet your needs!

Hi Cameron!
I, too, am a Texas transplant! I know when I moved here I was overwhelmed with the area, schools, shopping and the neighborhood possibilities. I can get you more information on all of that to help you eliminate the endless array of choices and get you where you want to be. Call, email, or text me so I can find out exactly what you are looking for and can point you in the right direction. I would love to help you and your family with this transition!

Hello Carmen,
Thanks so much for the inquiry. Have you taken a look at new DR Horton Homes at The Reserve at WestRidge? Our homes are energy effecient and loaded with many features that most other builders charge additional costs for. The price range is from the $220's through the $340's. We lie within the nationally acclaimed Frisco ISD, which yields a lower property tax rate, and our master planned community features a $2,000,000 water park showcasing 4 pools, 2 waterslides and an amenity center. Please email me privately to receive details on our available homes and build to suit possibilities. SLRambo@drhorton.com

Carmen,
I don't know if you have found this out et but McKinney has two different school districts, McKinney ISD & Frisco ISD, both highly rated. Frisco has the much lower tax rate. Cascades Park is one of the newest subdivisions in Stonebridge Ranch and it is in Frisco ISD, great location and nice neighborhood. Welcome to McKinney, you will love it!

Carmen, get with a Realtor asap to discuss your options in McKinney. Stonebridge Ranch seems to have caught your eye. How could it not? It's the largest master planned community in McKinney. But, McKinney has great options inside and outside Stonebridge. Research them all with an agent who knows the area and save yourself a lot of information overload. Be careful when searching in Stonebridge. There are different villages, like Cascades Park, and you can easily miss a village because you don't see the name Stonebridge.

We know a lot about the city, neighborhoods, schools, etc. You asked what neighborhoods to look in... but what price range are you looking in. I would love to talk with you about it. Call me anytime at 469-450-5522 David.

Stonebridege Ranch is great in that there are many "neighborhoods" all in relatively different price range. The ammenaties are great and there is a very active HOA. Although there are other places to settle down, the schools, pools, prgrams and community activities make SBR a great place. If you are by chance looking in the mid 200's, let me know. We are looking to down size some and would enjoy showing you around.

Hi Carmen,
Congratulations on your move and welcome to Texas. McKinney is a great place to live. We probably need a little more information to help you narrow down neighborhoods. What price range do you want to be in. Do you want an older more established neighborhood or new construction or something in between. Typically we go through a range of questions with you to help narrow the focus. There are some really nice deals in McKinney including some great foreclosures. Call me if you need assistance.

Hi Carmen,

Welcome to Texas! There are a lot of great areas in McKinney. The best way to help you would be for you to get a little more specific in what your needs might be. Do you work? Are you looking for something close to work, or is commuting not a problem? You already know the schools are very good-are you planning on driving your children to school or do you need to live within walking distance? Do you want a pool? What about living in a neighborhood that has a community pool? Then there's number of bedrooms, baths, square footage, etc...

Please feel free to contact me-I'd be happy to help you narrow down your search.
Marcia

You might try using the MLS search tool. You can narrow your search by pricing, and other specific information. The MLS is available on both my web sites, http://www.friscohomebuying.com or http://www.bigdrelo.com.
I also have numerous site links for Collin County that will help.
