Find Your Perfect Frisco Home with Ebby | CandysDirt.com

The Starwood custom home at 5608 Monterey Dr. is an example of the kind of incredible properties Ebby Halliday can help buyers find in Frisco.

One of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, Frisco is an upscale DFW suburb with about 161,000 people, growing by over 127,000 people since 2000. Why are people flocking here? In a word: opportunity. 

Frisco is known for highly rated and very desired schools, great family parks, and destination dining, retail, sports, and entertainment options. As the Frisco Economic Development Corporation says, the city is also a magnet for a skilled workforce who are contributing to Frisco’s rapid annual residential growth-rate of more than five percent. 

Ebby Halliday Realtor Jane Yeatman of the Yeatman Team says location and schools are a huge draw for families. 

“Strategically, the Dallas North Tollway intersects Frisco and the southern border is 121, so if you’re commuting, you’re on a highway fast,” Yeatman said. “There’s also a different school concept in Frisco ISD — we’ve got nine high schools compared to a similarly sized city with three — and in a recent report, quite a few schools in the district were on a ‘best in Texas’ list.” 

She also mentions the strong business culture of the city and increasing (and impressive!) changes. The $5-billion mile, for example, includes four mixed-use developments and more than $5 billion in capital investment. One famous development in it is the Cowboys world headquarters at the The Star.

Ebby Halliday has Realtors like Yeatman on the ground every day in the city and they’ve got the temperature on the market. These experts know neighborhoods and can help homebuyers find their perfect Frisco home. Let’s take a look at three houses that show off the best of the city.

Find Your Perfect Rockwall Home with Community Experts Ebby Halliday Realtors | CandysDirt.com

The Rockwall home at 2050 Silver Hawk Ct.

About 25 miles northeast of Dallas on the eastern shores of Lake Ray Hubbard, Rockwall is a popular city for people looking for lake living and a strong sense of community. This is a rapidly growing area, with a population around 40,000 in its 31 square miles. 

It’s a popular place for good reason: family-oriented, small-town feel with cute nostalgic downtown area and lots of locally owned restaurants and shops. Rockwall ISD gets high marks from parents and there are many family activities, like movies in the parks and concerts on the water. The lake creates a sense of separation from the bigger cities, but you’re really only a 20-minute drive from the Dallas Museum of Art, Deep Ellum, and other big city stuff, thanks to Interstate 30, which runs south of the city. Rockwall is well appointed for fun, with 23 parks, spraygrounds, a dog park, aquatics, and rec centers, too. 

“Rockwall offers affordability — people can get a beautiful home in a great neighborhood with excellent schools: the lifestyle they want and have an easy commute,” said Dell Osborn, a Realtor with Ebby Halliday’s Rockwall/Heath/Lake Ray Hubbard office and listing agent for the property pictured above.

I’d love to show you three exceptional properties I found, represented by Ebby!

62 Dunrobin $1,490,000

See these three gorgeous homes in the Hills of Breckinridge? All three will be open this Sunday, June 25, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm!

Last week, at the National Association of Real Estate Editor’s Denver conference, we heard from experts that Millennials were — surprise, surprise! — finally buying homes. Just taking them a little longer. And when they buy homes, they are not necessarily the urbanites we might think they are. They like the ‘burbs!

Doug Yearley, CEO of Toll Brothers, one of the country’s largest homebuilders, says Baby Boomers have been the backbone of the housing industry for decades. But Boomers, not Millennials, are fueling the high-rise wave.
