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.

I would suggest that you discuss with your realtor as he/she knows the details of your transaction.

Bruce Lynn answered:
They should be similar. Occasionally things get out of line....my 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

CHRISTINE TATE SCHMITT answered:
My answer is if that agent is willing to give her commission away that easy then how easy do you think it will be for them to give away your money when negotiating the price of the home on your behalf. This is the largest purchase of your life and you pay for what you get and from what I have seen you end up loosing with an agent like that. ... 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.

If you only look at City and School District Taxes you will see the tax rates for last year (2012) are:
City of Coppell: 0.67046
City of Lewisville: 0.44021
City of Irving: .5986
City of Carrollton: .617875

Coppell ISD: 1.4188
Carrollton FB ISD: 1.3306
Irving ISD: 1.465
Lewisville ISD: 1.4260

There will be other taxing entities but these show the variations between cities and school districts. Each taxing authority will have different exemptions available so check the taxes on any specific property.

Note that city and school district boundaries vary as you could be in coppell city but in Carrollton Schools, etc. Also note that the tax rates for this year are not set. Coppell ISD is currently holding a bond election in May that would increase taxes slighlty. The Coppell city tax rate was slightly reduced last year. I dont have any info on other cities and potential changes this year.

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.

Brent Rice answered:
Shawn, this is a good area to invest in for rental properties. But as Bruce points out, there are very few deeply discounted properties. The best approach is to have a search setup so that you have the most immediate knowledge of when they become available. Setting up a search in the MLS is the most reliable source of information. One of the fine agents here on Trulia can do this for you, including me. Be sure to choose an experienced Realtor to assist you. I am certified and specialized in foreclosures and short sales as well as investment analysis to insure you do not make an unwise decision. I have assisted many clients who are landlords and have owned and operated investment properties myself.

Best of luck in your search. Please let me know if I may help you in any way. You can learn more about me through my profile here on Trulia.
