Zillow Advice: Neighborhoods - Lakeside Flower Mound - American Legend homes http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Lakeside-Flower-Mound-American-Legend-homes/527146/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate None of us can accurately ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Lakeside-Flower-Mound-American-Legend-homes/527146/ None of us can accurately predict future values. &nbsp; I'm not really a fan of either of these locations. &nbsp;In Las Colinas area it is more or less surrounded by warehouses and office buildings. &nbsp;Probably not many homes will be built around there. &nbsp; It will be interesting to see how these sell. &nbsp; Bonus is Coppell schools, but none of the schools are close. &nbsp;I don't foresee any school being built in the area. &nbsp;Traffic will not be fun if you take your kids to school and they'll never be able to walk or bike to school from there. &nbsp; Plenty of people have bought homes where I would never buy though. &nbsp; Personally I'd never want to live right there on 635 between Frys and WalMart, but those homes sold very very fast.<br/><br/>In Flower Mound it almost surprises me they will allow homes there. &nbsp;Again nearly directly if not directly under the flight path. &nbsp;Take a book and go sit one sunny afternoon and listen to all the aircraft noise. &nbsp;To me it is the sound of money, but for some I know it is the sound of frustration and lost sleep.. &nbsp;Schools are a little closer with easier access, but not sure I would ever want my kids crossing 2499 or close to it, especially near there where the traffic is probably 50mph. &nbsp;<br/><br/>I'm thinking build quality or finish outs will likely be similar.<br/><br/>I think the better values would be getting a resale in the city of Coppell or La Villita....but that's me.<br/><br/>Either way take a realtor with you when you buy. &nbsp;NEVER ever go at it alone with a builder.

You will still have to compare the school and access to family amenities. I will be more than happy to assist you in getting qualified and paired with a great buyers agent to help you negotiate the contract and put each seller against each other giving you more buying power.&nbsp;<br/><br/> Tue, 04 Feb 2014 19:24:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Lakeside-Flower-Mound-American-Legend-homes/527146/ 2014-02-04T19:24:00Z
