Hey George!

It is a Realtor's job to provide knowledgeable market information to you. Are you in a signed contract with your Realtor to have them represent you? If you are, then they need to advise you or release you from an agreement. If you are not in a signed buyer representation contract, then I would be happy to talk to you over the phone and see how I can help you! I know Frisco very well and I always strive to save my clients a lot of money and have been successful in helping clients build wealth and equity through Real Estate for many years now!

If I can be of real estate service to you, please pick up the phone & call me today!

I personally feel it is an excellent price! A mistake you are making? We are holding our own! Frisco is holding it's own. Proof? Homes are not on the market long? When they do sell? Pretty close to asking price. There are a few subdivisions near Cobb that might have 1 home on the market. 5 at the most prime season. The schools in area are Fantastic! Frisco high school feeds into that area?(unless zonimg changed) There is a shortgage of available rentals in area. If they are available they are a lot higher than most areas.If you do not get the answers or feel comfortable with your Realtor? Maybe you need a change!

It's inherently difficult to get comps in a new home community, values do vary. If it helps any, price per foot is misunderstood by many buyers and judgement by that alone would be an incorrect judgement. In any neighborhood, values are averaged by the smaller and larger homes in a subdivision. The short version of the example is, smaller homes in a given subdivision sell for more per sq.ft. and the biggest homes sell for the least per ft.

As far as the builder, you can check with BBB, In my experience, everyone has a horror story about one builder or another, but it's usually isolated incidents. Do your due diligence as always. Good Luck.
