Yes, former Dallas Cowboy Deion Sanders‘ $14 million dollar home is located in the northern Collin (and Denton) County suburb of Prosper, as well as the impressive homes of a dozen other notable athletes, but this 22,000-resident suburb is so much more than that. This bustling town’s inventory of single family homes counts more newly constructed homes than existing homes with a median price of $453,276.

Farmers Branch

Farmers Branch is full of fully renovated homes ready for move-in.

Older cities often have, well, older homes, which have beautiful mature greenery and a variety of decade architecture to choose from, but the challenge can be renovation. Let’s be honest: It’s time-consuming, and when you’re in the middle of renovation, it’s hell to live in. But a successful demo/rebuild program in Farmers Branch has given us an amazing inventory of older homes with all the modern features you’d want and the time-consuming renovation already done for you. Here are three Farmers Branch homes to gawk at for this week’s Suburb Sunday.

But here at CandysDirt.com, we dive into what that means for you. And this kind of phenomenal growth makes real estate in this affluent northern suburb a hot ticket. In fact, luxury housing does quite well in Frisco — high-end, gated communities with great amenities are where a lot of those sales are happening.

It’s almost an unfair advantage to photograph a home with this gorgeous a sunset overhead.

The Town of Fairview is an actual town, so don’t call this gorgeous 9-square-mile bedroom community a city, please. For this week’s Suburb Sunday, here are three homes for sale in Fairview at top-, middle-, and low-price points, but all are breathtaking in this town that’s marked by large homes on sprawling lots and numerous horse farms.

Fairview is located east of US 75/Central Expressway, just north of Allen. About 10,000 people call Fairview home, where they enjoy excellent Lovejoy ISD schools, and the Village at Fairview shopping area.

An interesting fact: There are no apartments or commercial developments in Fairview, plus the town enforces a “dark skies policy” that all new development complies with to protect their way of life and “keeping it country.”

We’re not sure what Hollywood has against Garland. In the opening scenes of the Emma Stone movie Zombieland, Jesse Eisenberg’s character is at a service station running from a zombie. In a voiceover, he says: “I’m in Garland, Texas. And it may look like zombies destroyed it, but that’s actually just Garland.”

For this week’s Suburb Sunday, we turn our attention to three great, very zombie-free homes in Garland, a suburb just northeast of Dallas. Garland really covers a lot of ground, stretching from the city’s northmost reaches at President George Bush Turnpike near Richardson all the way south to I-30 near Rowlett.

The city is located mostly in Dallas County, though some parts are located in Collin and Rockwall counties. According to the 2017 estimates, Garland is the 95th most-populous city in the U.S. and the 12th-most populous in Texas, and we’re positive that none of its residents are zombies.

CelinaIt’s both the town that was country enough to appear in a Kenny Chesney video, but fancy enough to be home to two acclaimed vineyards — and people move to Celina every year for that small town feel with the big city amenities.

Halfway between Dallas and Oklahoma, Celina is a straight shot up State Highway 289, and is also right on the Dallas North Tollway extension. Dallas is 45 minutes away and Denton is 35 minutes away, making it easy to enjoy the country life while still being able to access all the shopping, entertainment and more that the city has to offer as well.

And did we mention Celina’s longtime pastime? Because quite possibly the best entertainment to be had in Texas comes on Friday nights in a small town, and Celina offers up some of the best small-town Friday night football in the state, with eight state championships and 40 playoff appearances under its belt.

So for this week’s Suburb Sunday, we trek to Celina, where depending on where you live, you could be in Celina ISD or Prosper ISD. Three homes, three different price points. Which one is your favorite? (more…)

WataugaWatauga, a suburb of Fort Worth, is hot. How hot? On average, homes in Watauga sell in 15 days — in fact, Realtor.com recently said that’s three percent faster than last year, and about 50 percent faster than homes in the rest of the country.

So for our inaugural Suburb Sunday, we decided to take a look at three homes in Watauga that provides the affordability of the suburbs but is close enough for its residents to enjoy everything Fort Worth has to offer.
