It was a year ago and I got a call from Candy Evans, THE only Dallas Real Estate Blogger, and she asked me about Light Farms in Celina.
I said, “Huh? Light Farms? Celina?”
She continued with she has heard that it will be the next best community and has everything going for it, and honestly I was very skeptical.
Light Farms in Celina right now is perfect for a large amount of buyers that I speak to on a daily basis.
Here are 5 reasons why Light Farms WILL be a fantastic community for many, many new home buyers.
I focus on Frisco communities and a year ago had a hard time getting comfortable with Celina as being a desirable location. But now after driving it, being a visionary and realizing why it makes sense, Light Farms could be a better location than Phillips Creek Ranch, Richwoods or Lawler Park.
The Dallas North Tollroad WILL continue directly by the community. (See above) It is literally right off the Tollroad. This has a huge advantage for communities and makes Light Farms attractive with its accessibility.
The builders that will be building in Light Farms are American Legend Homes, Darling Homes, Lionsgate Homes, Drees Homes, Shaddock Homes and Highland Homes.
I have sold homes with every one and the quality, customer service and track record all give Light Farms a big advantage over other communities. They are all successful and build great homes. Not one bad builder.
With these builders and the timing right now of the grand opening, ANYONE who makes the decision to contract in the next couple months are sitting pretty with equity.
In new home developments, the key is buying right. And in the beginning the builders do not know exactly what their homes will go for market, so most of the time they underprice and the market shows them they are too cheap. For instance, Lionsgate has sold 16 here and their model isn’t even complete! This shows the demand was there and the buyers jumped since the prices are so much less than the communities they were looking in Frisco, Allen, McKinney and Prosper.
See the map above. Light Farms is on 908 acres and plans for 2,700 homes at build out! This alone should make sense to you by “getting in early!”
I know what you are thinking, “Retail? What’s this guy talking about!?!”. Well, it’s coming, breaking ground very, very soon!
There are two MAJOR developments that will be coming on two corners of highway 380 and the Dallas North Tollroad. The first is Frisco North.
The Frisco North Development will be located on the South West corner or 380 and the Tollroad and consist of retail, apartments and commercial space. Cinemark has already announced a 14 theatre movie theatre there!
On the North West corner, Mr. Jack Matthews purchased 157 acres and plans for more retail, office, hotel and entertainment. Jack is with Matthews Southwest and they have developed The Tribute in They Colony as well as the Omni in downtown Dallas.
SLAM DUNK with those two projects coming to life!!!
#5. Light Farms Amenities
With 4 pools, 4 tennis courts, a fitness center, hike and bike trails, playgrounds/parks and close to 132 acres of the community as green space; Light Farms wins!
At the pool they have a concession area! What community has that! Also, the fact of around 132 acres of green space will make this place look great.
After actually seeing it, it makes sense.
