If you’re thinking about pulling up stakes and relocating in 2014, you might consider the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The nation’s 9th largest city ranked third on Penske Truck Rental’s annual list of top cities people are moving to, according to CNN Money. It helps explain why business is picking up for area home builders. Little Elm, Frisco and McKinney in north Dallas are popular options for home buyers. Couples, families and empty nesters are flocking to these communities in part because of their small-town appeal.
CNN Money noted that one reason the Dallas metroplex is attracting so many new residents is because it has become a high-tech mecca. In fact, so many tech companies, like Texas Instruments, AT&T and several startups have set up shop in Dallas that the area is now being referred to as the “Silicon Prairie.” What’s the appeal for these businesses? Most likely, it’s the low cost of living, good schools and affordable housing available to their employees. Of the top five cities cited as most popular to move to in the Penske Truck Rental list, Dallas had the highest median income of $208,000, and second lowest home price growth forecast of 4 percent.
You’ll find some of the best new home values in the Dallas area right in Little Elm. Landon Homes has just opened new phases at two of its communities, Enclave at Lakeview and Dominion at Lakeview. Located just east of Lake Lewisville, Lakeview is a master-planned community loaded with amenities, including four resort-style swimming pools, a kiddie pool, spray park, walking trails, two basketball courts, a roller hockey rink, soccer fields and baseball fields.
With easy access to the Tollway, and ten minutes away from Frisco’s key business, shopping and entertainment areas, Lakeview is also served by the acclaimed Frisco ISD. Exemplary-rated Robertson Elementary is conveniently located onsite for families and kids alike. Living right near Lake Lewisville means residents can go water skiing, boating and fishing anytime, making it the perfect place for a “staycation.”
Home buyers in Little Elm appreciate the amazing energy efficiency features they find in a Landon home. Unlike the typical 2×4 exterior wall construction you’ll find in other new homes, Landon uses a thicker 2×6. That feature, along with exceptional heat-reducing windows, first-rate attic insulation ratings and tech-shield radiant barriers, translates into lower utility bills for the Landon home owner.
The new homes in Lakeview are not only energy efficient, they are beautifully designed too. Landon includes spectacular touches like gorgeous fireplaces, circular staircases and outstanding kitchens that are perfect for entertaining. The best way to evaluate a Landon home is to see one in person. Stop by one of our model homes today and find out why Landon is one of the top new home builders in Little Elm.
