I've lived in Coppell for 22 years...the train isn't very active. The conductors don't blow the horns at night so it hasn't been an issue. But Bruce is correct..there is talk of Dart moving in.

Bruce Lynn answered:
They should be similar. Occasionally things get out of thought is perhaps some of the homes were under construction when the valuations came out. I would plan for the value to be close to what you pay for it. That's the plan. You may get a break the first year....for example if your construction starts Dec1 the value on jan 1 might be just the lot value...even though the house gets completed lets say May 1st, the tax value for that year might be based on the lot value. The next year the value should go up near the purchase price. ... more

I've done pro formas for potential investors and have seen cap rates of over 5.5% in Coppell recently, based on all cash purchases. I did some comps on Plano and see pretty similar cap rates based on all cash purchases. Obviously there are a lot of variables but the cap rates on similar properties and neighborhoods seemed close.

Arthur Lenga answered:
Unbelievable sellers market we have now and its even surpassing 2008 market. The biggest driver is the combination of low interest rates and the pent up market of buyers that took a big credit hit back a few years ago. The buyer's recovery of their credit is driving them to come out in droves to purchase their homes they lost years ago and first home buyers recognize the great opportunity they have.

I have a new listing coming out this week for a townhome in the Coppell ISD. I expect this home to sell quickly.

Bruce Lynn answered:
Texas Family Fitness is probably the closest and least expensive option.

Please give them my name Bruce Lynn as the referrer. Hopefully you'll get some kind of discount that way and I'll get a free month too.

The next closest places, but probably much more expensive are the YMCA and the city fitness center.

If you need info for them just let me know.

Annette Levinson answered:
No lender wants to portfolio a mortgage. They want the ability to sell the mortgage. Unless your 2nd lien was taken out at the closing of your purchase, it is considered a cash out.

Depends on the house.... for most houses it is not a problem and in fact we recommend you get an inspection.

Lisa Montes answered:
Coppell is pretty built out already. There are a few new subdivisions being built right now. You are correct that Arbor Manor is centrally located in Coppell ISD. Sandy Lake and Denton Tap are major roads that can get busy at certain times during the day. But all in all it is a quiet area. Coppell in general is a quiet community. I am a resident and we love it for those same reasons: school, location, and sense of community. You are going to love it here especially with children! Let me know if I can help in any way!

I am a Coppell resident myself and there just aren't that many. There are few but you must act fast. Homepath had a couple listed in the fall.
