Frisco Station and it’s not a radio station either

Frisco Station 317 Acre Mixed-Use Development

 Frisco StationFrisco Station is a 317 acre mixed-use development off the Dallas Tollway (near 121) and HALL OFFICE PARK. Plans include 4.5 million square feet of office space, 40 acres of retail space, two hotels and an array of residential housing options. This includes apartments, townhomes and single-family houses. Remember FRISCO is one of the top ten fastest growing cities in America and this is a prime example of that growth pattern.

This project is in partnership with the Frisco Economic Development Council in conjunction with Hines Development and The Retail Connection overseeing the 40 acres of retail development.  Just down the road (west on 121) about three miles is the new Grand Scape development of Nebraska Furniture Mart and the long established Stonebriar Mall (just a mile or so east on 121) from Frisco Station.  It will make this area a MEGA SHOPPING ARENA that certainly no consumer should go wanting for anything they might need or desire.

Hall Office Park adds building 16 to its business office park campus

Frisco Hall Office Park Continues to Grow

Hall Office Park110

Schedule to come on stream mid-April 2014 is Hall Office Park’s 16th building, a 200,000 square foot Class AA office building located at 3001 Dallas Pkwy Hall Office Park in Frisco. Developer Craig Hall’s 162 acre office park currently has 2 million square feet of space in 15 buildings, with a 98 percent occupancy rate.  Additionally, the West Plano-Frisco submarket currently has a number of developments underway, including Granite Properties tower and hotel, Conifer Health’s corporate build to suit project and a Trammel Crow two building corporate project.

If you’re not familiar with this area or Hall Office Park I know you’ll find this of interest as it definitely is a Class AA office building complex.  Also for anyone that works or offices in the Hall Office Park complex and would like to live in a golf course community just minutes away,  you have an excellent choice with Stonebriar Country Club.  This club is probably no more than a Tiger Wood driver shot from Hall Office Park.

Friday’s Fountain

Relax! It’s Friday…

Frisco Fountain

All over the metro area we have our fountains – we don’t have oceans to look at or many lake views in the general area but we have tons of fountains.  Photo above is in Frisco at the Creeks at Stonebriar, right across the street from the country club.  Enjoy the weekend, stay cooler and get the kids ready for school.

What does a Frisco Foreclosure Kitchen look like?

Too Good to be True?

An Awesome Foreclosure

Frisco_Foreclosure_Kitchen

I bet this isn’t your idea of a foreclosure but it is!  There are a growing number of builders homes that are going into foreclosure.  This one in particular use to be a million dollars, on sale now for $785,000.  Only 2 years new and never been lived in.  The only thing about buying a builders home in foreclosure is there is probably no warranty protection, so in that cause you need to locate the vendors that built the home in the first place just to be covered against possible defects. You never know…

Friday, Foreclosures and Frisco

Foreclosure Madness

Foreclosure_Finds_in_Dallas_ezr

If you frequent this site you know I post foreclosures on Friday.

So in light of the biggest bail out ever, I thought lets change things up a bit. Since there are not that many foreclosures in West Plano – around 15, I’ll add Frisco zip codes 75034 and 75035 to the mix. Can you guess how many?

121 foreclosure listings have been added to the foreclosure file and that is what’s on the MLS –  there are probably more than that. Even though I don’t sell money –  only real estate –  I can tell you the undoings on wall street this week came from banks and institutions not being able to sell real estate.  Perhaps now foreclosure properties will be able to be bought at the correct pricing and conditions.  Better deals for buyers!  It’s certainly time…

3 Day House Sale?

3 Day House Sale?

Beacon_crest_5.5M

If you’ve sold or selling your home you probably know what CSS is.

If you don’t – it’s the Centralized Showing System that schedules all your appointments for other agents to show your home.

They track all your appointments and send auto emails to agents that show your property for instant feedback. (if your agent has that feature set up)

You can also send listing announcements about price changes or circumstances to all the agents that have previously shown your property.

Yesterday, I received an announcement for a 3 Day Sale on a Property in Frisco at one of the Stonebriar communities that, Still hasn’t sold…

It’s like a Macy’s 3 Day Sale! No kidding…

We aren’t selling clothes or appliances here, the sale goes like this: $20,000 will be taken off the list price on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – ONLY!

After that the price goes back up, Does that make you want to buy it?

Don’t you think they will take the $20,000 off after Sunday?

YEP! They will.

Better to go ahead and take another cut and leave it, the more inline the price is the better chances of your home selling quicker. Once you give it up you can’t take it back – be curious to see what kind of signage they have for the event. Sellers and agents are getting very creative now, aren’t they?

America’s Fastest Growing Suburbs – Frisco in Top Ten

Congratulations North Texas!

Dr. Pepper Minor League Ballpark – Frisco

frisco1

On the Forbes top 100 fastest growing suburbs, there were 11 N. Texas cities that made the list.

Frisco came in at Number 7 and Wylie Number 8. These two cities are considered close in to Dallas.

Frisco is just north of Plano and is a very vibrant and well planned city, excellent schools – Minor League Ballpark, Stars hockey center, Stonebriar Mall, Stonebriar Golf Course, Country Club and New Homes …yes plenty of new homes.

The only thing that Frisco needs to complete are its roads and highways to support it’s growth – until then you will have to cope with traffic. Here are growth figures for Frisco for the last 6 years:

2000 – 35299
2006 – 80,499

=128% growth in population

As you see the growth has been explosive – and there is still plenty of room to grow – Frisco around highway 121 is only about 30 miles North of Dallas.
