Hi Dee-

Frisco Lakes is a great neighborhood and the many clients I have had that bought here love living here! The taxes are of course based on the price of the home for the different county, city and school taxes. You as a home owner are responsible for maintaining your yard and the HOA has very strict guidelines on keeping your yard maintained.

The HOA dues are $330 quarterly and the club house is amazing with onsite recreation manager and many activities for the residents, other than golf.

If you would like more information on this great neighborhood in Frisco, please feel free to text, call or email me and I will be happy to help you with your home search.

Feel free to visit my website to learn more about me as a real estate agent!

Best regards,

Morning Ligia,

The noise level obviously varies based on the location of the home. Just recently a friend of mine who lives near rail road tracks mentioned she no longer hears the noise and ii is therefore not an issue for her family. It might be difficult to find a detailed and accurate train schedule as you are deailing not only with passenger but a host of freight train operators. It is my understanding that freight trains do not necessarily run on a schedule.

If you really like the house and you think you can overcome the noise factor, be mindful not to overpay for the house. Sitting next to a rail road is a deterrent from a resale point of view

If I can be of help in your real estate search. Call 972.697.3106.

I would not take anyone else's opinion about this:

You should get in your car, go there, walk around and meet your new neighbors;
find out the good things as well as the bad.
No DISCLOSURES will reveal what you can learn, and you cannot use it at a later date. ... more

I'm not sure what you meant by anti social. I've never found a neighborhood that I dislike in Frisco. However, having said that, you'll find a neighbor or two that you won't be able to get along with no matter where you are.

If you are still looking to purchase a property in Frisco and it's surrounding cities give me a call, I specialized in the area.

Take care!

Stonelake Estates is quite large and has many different phases with homes varying largely with regard to price/sq.ft.

Would you like us to send you some examples? Are there other specifics you are interested in learning more about, such as: Amenities, HOA Fees,etc.?

I would be happy to assist you!

The answer lies in your CCR's,
you will need supporting documents in any case.

Good luck and may God bless

Hello Cowboy,

Empty lots will eventually fill up. It depends on how long you plan to own the property and what you are paying for it. Subdivisions typically take 5 years to sell out. However 2nd, 3rd, & 4th phases can extend that and some Frisco subdivisions have had and will have many more foreclosures. As long as you are competing with the builder in the same neighborhood you will have to beat the new construction prices by a substantial amount. Buyers just like new.

Work with an agent to help you determine the market value of the property you are considering and negotiate the best price for you.

Yes, it will be opening in 2010. It will only be serving The Trails and a small part of Heather Ridge from what I have been told.

I can not warrant your safety, it'd be a legal liable risk.

I would suggest driving neighborhood's which interest you during a weekend and at nights to get a feel for the neighborhood. Stop and ask neighbors outside what they think of the neighborhood. Also, you can get crime statistics from your local area PD.

In Frisco and McKinney you can find homes for $150k, as well as Plano.

Bets of luck to you!
