Living in Frisco, Texas

Frisco, Texas is a fast-growing suburb just outside of North Dallas. The city is located in both Collin and Denton Counties and has an exceptional school system with a low-teacher-student ratio.

Frisco neighborhoods are mostly newer homes built within the past five to seven years. Frisco has always offered a lot of value in terms of real estate square footage when compared to its pricier neighbors of North Dallas and Plano, but the recent real estate bust has created even more good deals as foreclosures rise.

Homes in Frisco range from the $100,000s to the Millions in the Frisco luxury new home communities of Stonebriar, Starwood and Lakes on Legacy Even through a slowed housing market, Frisco continues to thrive with new homes being constructed daily. New homebuilders in the city include DR Horton, Mercedes Homes, Pulte Homes, Highland Homes and Sotherby Homes. You can find a new home priced from the high $200,000s on up.

The City of Frisco has experienced growing pains with the influx of transplants from the Dallas Fort Worth area as people seek to find homes that cost less and have yards and quiet suburban streets. Traffic can be a pain in certain parts of the city as new construction is harrowing to meet up with demand. Commuters breathed a sigh of relief in late 2007 when the North Dallas Tollway recently opened up from Highway 121 all the way to 380, making getting around the city much easier.

Frisco has alot to offer in terms of entertainment, restaurants and shopping. The Dr. Pepper Stadium in Frisco serves as home base for the Frisco Rough Riders baseball team as well as a host of other sporting events. The Stonebriar Mall is a popular place to shop among residents with a Nordstrom and a Macys. Surrounding the mall you will find just about every type of restaurant imaginable as well as nightspots and pubs for weekend fun.

As the new residential growth slows in Frisco, retail outlets are cropping up to take care of the residents. A new Target recently opened at Eldorado and the North Dallas Tollway, as did a Wal-Mart nearby. Close to central Frisco a new Mardels, Central Market and Hobby Lobby are under construction.

Frisco has a new feel and is alive with new possibilities. Consider this wonderful North Dallas Suburb when deciding your next move.
