Frisco - NEW PARK Locations approved for BMX & Skateboard Facilities

by Christie Cannon

Frisco's award winning Parks & Recreation Department made an announcement that may have gone under the radar for many.  The City has endorsed the expansion of two undeveloped parks which will include a skateboard park & a bicycle motorcross (BMX) facility! Frisco's goal is to open these facilities in the next 12-14 months!

The proposed locations are below:

SKATEBOARD Park = Northeast Community Park
Park Type: Community Park
Nearest Major Intersection: Panther Creek Parkway & Coit Road
Acres: 75

BMX Facility = Northwest Community Park
Park Type: Community Park
Nearest Major Intersection: Panther Creek Parkway & Teel Parkway
Acres: 164.04

The National Association of REALTORs (NAR) just released their Existing Sales number for August 2013.  

The graphic below certainly paints a rosier picture than the last few years... however, there is still justified growing concern over the long term trends -  market & political uncertainties... interest rate concerns... lending practice changes coming in Jan... Fannie & Freddie' viability... increases in FHA costs & mortgage insurance...  - The only constant in Real Estate is Change!

Have questions or wish to discuss what may be the right time for You & your Family?  Considering what may work for your goals?

One of my favorite things about the Metroplex... if you want it, we got it! 

Love the outdoors - the walking, the lake, bicycling; but don't want to give up the city - proximity to business districts, the arts, dining, the night-life?  CNN & Money Magazine definitely got it right when they named Lakewood in Dallas in their top 10 Best Big City Neighborhoods.

Though one of the older neighborhoods in Dallas (& home to the 2nd oldest Golf Course/CC), the area remains both a sought after community to live and a destination for DFW.  With such a diverse style (& age) of homes & buildings, sometimes just a simple drive or walk-thru neighborhoods is as much a treat as a day at White Rock Lake.  From Charles Dilbeck & O'Neil Ford - to the Eberson designed iconic Lakewood Theater; touring this area is quite an education in mid-century & early modern Texas architecture.  Home prices start solidly in the $500k's - there are a few that sneak in under, but prices look up from there much more than down.  

While we may clog up your parking, when people drive out the 'burbs (and past 100's of acres of parks, shopping, & more along the way) just to experience your city's offerings; then you are doing it right!

Congrats to Lakewood!

Frisco, TX - Always Something Exciting Happening!

by Christie Cannon

There is always something exciting happening in Frisco - from Frisco's highly active real estate market, to its constant city improvements & awesome amenities, Frisco continues to amass accolades. 

By now, everyone has likely heard about the amazing partnership between the world renowned Dallas Cowboys & Frisco ISD.  The Christie Cannon Team was lucky to have our wonderfully experienced Buyer Specialist & Frisco-Guru, Kristi Reinertsen, attend the ribbon cutting. 

This partnership will result in the development of the Cowboy's new training & corporate facilities; and will offer new opportunities for Frisco & Frisco ISD for multi-use event spaces & improved sports facilities.  Both the Frisco EDC & the Frisco ISD offer some additional information!
