Hi! I am curious how this turned out for you. We have an investor that is flipping a home into a senior living home on our street. Like you, we are in a neighborhood with an HOA and lots of children. There is a state statue that permits this here that overides our HOA bylaws. I am pretty upset. Our board says our hands are tied and this will be the first home like this in the neighborhood of 600 homes. ... more

Many people fall in love with the Trails...
The great location with such easy access to Dallas Parkway, along with rolling landscaping, trees and of course exemplary-rated schools make it a favorite for most people when considering buying in Frisco. (Beware! Homes move pretty quickly in the Trails so don't wait to submit an offer if you like a home there).

While home stagers definitely add value, I rarely use them given today's DFW housing market. I advise my clients to stage the property that will enable prospective buyers to envision them living there. ... more

What a beautiful place to live!! I don't live there but I know someone who does. It is a private gated community and your name has to be on the list in order to be allow in by the security guard. You must also present I.D.. The community has cameras throughout the streets. I believe it is one of the ways the security people make sure you go where you are suppose to go. Grocery shopping is near by in Trophy Club or you can hop on to the freeway and get to Southlake in about 5 minutes or less. Southlake has plenty of upscale shopping and restaurants. Vacquero is tucked away from the big city, but not too far if you want some city life. ... more

I'm sure Pilot Point is big city to some.....and some go into TOWN shopping.
For Big D folk it is country.
Some people say there are lots of ranches in this area.
Then again some people say ranches start at 20,000 acres and anything less is just a farm.
The King Ranch in south Texas has 825,000acres and operations all over the world.
The Waggoner Ranch has over 500,000acres.
Some people still call Fort Worth cow town.
So it all depends on your perspective.

Hi A. I was walking my dog about 10 months ago with my buddy that lives in my neighborhood. He asked me the same exact question. I looked at him and said, "Throw the bums OUT!!! Everybody is cutting HOA fees and they're raising them? Throw out the incompetent idiots and take over as president, cut the expenses and waste, and you'll be doing a HUGE mitzvah (good deed). He did and here's what happened:

GOOD LUCK!! It takes time and effort and help from other disgruntled owners, but it's done all the time!

Ronda Allen answered:
Yes - hard to resale. The empty lots come with noise and trash from construction when the lot is purchased, and are tempting hazards (maybe the concrete wash-out or dumping ground for debris for the builder) for both children and pets.

The biggest reason these are hard resale homes isn't the empty lots themselves. It's the owner of the lots. The builder has pretty deep pockets, and can steal away your buyer in many instances with promises of upgrades and reductions in the price of a new home over a resale home. We will continue to have this issue in Frisco until we're built-out. But, what the real estate agents know is that there is a buyer for your home. Frisco isn't getting less popular. Not every buyer can wait for new, and not every builder has a spec home matching the buyer's needs at every given moment. You have to get listed, and your time will come. It isn't an easy sell. But, it isn't impossible, either. It will very likely take more than one buyer cycle to find your buyer. It's all in the timing of the right buyer, right house, immediate availability. Lots of marketing exposure is needed, and a pricing strategy that makes your home 'worth a look' for every buyer in your price point. It's going to take a lot of showings - many more than the norm, but you'll get there. List now, with the Spring selling season just starting. Earlier is better - those folks considering a Summer move are online right now checking out the available homes. And, a key piece of advice for any home going on the market where you know you have to overcome an obvious objection - eliminate every other objection to the house. Stage it, keep it spotless, and make it unique and memorable. House hunting is like baseball...three strikes and you're out.
Have a blessed day!
