Since Republic Property Group started dreaming up Light Farms, a master-planned community in Celina, we at CandysDirt.com have been intrigued. The location, the amenities, and the builders all drew our attention and we’re happy to hear that the Dallas Business Journal has named Light Farms one of the “Best Real Estate Deals” in all of North Texas.
With builders such as Darling Homes, Highland Homes, and Lions Gate, this development will attract plenty of buyers. And with tons of great amenities — pools, green space, and parks out the wazoo — well, I’d definitely call that a great value.
According to a story from the Celina Record Star, city officials were bowled over by the appraisals coming in from Light Farms:
Projected at around $240,000, home values actually came in much higher than that at $350,000, a pleasant surprise to everyone involved.
“When all of this started, we were all concerned about the home values,” said Mike Foreman, city manager. “We were amazed at the values.”
Tony Ruggeri of Republic Property Group said that the success of Light Farms was possible because of the hard work the City of Celina put into the partnership. On the other hand, the Celina city officials think it’s the amenities offered by RPG and Light Farms that make it attractive and an incredible buy.
“This is the first big development that is going to kick-start major development in Celina,” Foreman said. “It is going to help provide the rooftops needed for retail in the city.”
Well, I think it’s a combination of both! Great planning and fabulous amenities are really drawing in residents. You can check out the models in Light Farms today, and see why 37 homes in the development are already sold.
