Hello Home Buyer,
The number of days on the market for both active and sold listings is really reasonable for the current market. There is quite a spread in the sold prices in the area due to a couple of foreclosures, but that is also the current market in most subdivision. Seven homes sold in Parkview in July. Another three lower priced homes sold in September, probably as a response to the first time buyers tax credit. This is a lot of sales for such a small neighborhood.
Like any subdivision, be cautious of any home that backs up to a boulevard. If you prefer one of these homes, you are in the minority and when you go to sell it there will be a lot smaller buyer pool to work with. You must figure that a home that backs to a busy street will probably sell for thousands less that a comparable home on the interior of the subdivision. Make sure you get a great deal up front.
For newer construction, this is one of the lowest priced subdivisions in Stonbridge Ranch. You will have access to all of the Stonebridge amenities including 2 pools, tennis, and all of the lakes and trails. This subdivision is also zoned for some of the best schools in McKinney. The only negative to Stonebridge for this price range is that some buyers don't want the higher homeowners association fees.
For a buyer who wants to be in Stonebridge in newer construction, I would recommend Parkview. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
