New Communities in Dallas Suburbs


As a Realtor, I love finding new communities in Dallas suburbs before information is released publicly. It helps my clients beat the rush and get in on pre-sale prices. Now some communities may have an advertisement or two but not all model homes have been built in the community. Recently, I had a relocation buyer looking to build a home in the suburbs. She saw a community but wasn’t quite sure of it. We both went to visit it and discovered the three builders in the community.

From there, I went on to find more information and which builder fit her price range. We not only found one that did her price range but one that had their upgrades as standard options for her. We had pre-sale prices and even after she built the home out the way she wanted, we still didn’t reach her max budget. Can we say SCORE?!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will see that I absolutely love new construction. It is my thing for my clients. I like resale as well but I understand that some clients like the thrill of new. I understand. It is like the difference between new car sales and used car sales. The used car sales are great for your budget and timing. The new car sales come with a sticker price. It is somewhat equivalent to it. I love to help clients build their “perfect” home for now. I placed “perfect” in quotations because there is no such thing as a perfect home.

Below are a few communities that I have found while out on the search as well as some from my builder relationships. If you are interested in any of these communities, contact me. Seriously, I always get the question of whether you need an agent purchasing new construction. YES! The sales representative represents the builder. Who is representing you? It’s free representation for you so why not have someone represent you. Agents can help you negotiate the deal, understand what will help you in the resale process (if you are building), and explore your options. You don’t want to get caught up in the beauty of the model homes. Yes, they are staged well and you will be ready to hand over your whole checking account but an agent can help you weigh the pros and cons. So if you are interested in buying a built home in a community or building one, contact me to walk you through it.

I Want A Home…..Maybe a Townhome?

Could you first home be a townhome? Most people want the 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, and 2 car garage home with a spacious backyard. highlighted this boom in the housing market for townhomes by stating the following: ““Despite the drop in market share during the Great Recession, the share for townhouse construction is expected to increase in coming years – with occasional ups and downs,” according to NAHB’s Eye on Housing blog.”

townhomes even suggested the long-run prospects for townhouse construction are positive given large numbers of homebuyers looking for medium density residential neighborhoods. In the Denton County area that I work in, townhomes are becoming a big movement. Townhomes are being designed like the normal single-family structure and you definitely wouldn’t know it was a townhome in the inside. I had the pleasure of showing Beauty Vlogger Missy Lynn a few townhomes in Lewisville at The Manors at Vista Ridge. Check out the video below and see what it means to have a townhome as your first home.
