Opportunity for New Homes
New construction is always of interest to home buyers. And the Alliance area offers those looking for new homes a consistent supply of spec inventory and "from the ground up" new home builds. The current wide range of neighborhoods in various stages of completion is almost staggering.
Buyers have choices of small, quaint additions with as few as 150 homes all the way to the master-planned communities of 3000 lots or more. The majority of new home areas will require membership in an owners association to cover the costs of the amenities available for homeowners.
Harvest, a planned community founded on a five generation family farm, showcases the bountiful celebration of gathering, growing and living.
The new neighborhoods in the Alliance corridor each offer community amenities that typically include pools and splash parks, trails and greenbelts, ponds and playgrounds. What makes each development unique is the focus of the design.
Each development has its own flavor created by well planned elements from the entrance structures and landscaping to the style of the new homes offered.
Some neighborhoods take on the image of their surroundings, with native grasses waving in the breeze and landmark entrances that blend into the hillside they're opening from.
Others present a theme, epitomizing a visitor's expectation of the perfect representation of the surroundings. Still other new developments strike out to make a statement and define their character with elegant urns and waterfalls at their gated entrances.
There are even a few new additions that announce their personalities with splash parks and playgrounds easily visible from the main entrance. Each is unique. Each is well thought out. Each offers homeowners insight into the shared "vibe" of their neighbors expectations.
Canyon Falls, an 1199 acre planned-community spans Northlake, Flower Mound and Argyle overlooks the Graham Branch Creek.

Alliance Area Home Styles
No matter which development new home buyers prefer, they're bound to find homes at widely varied price points, sizes and design styles.
On trend architecture can include stone and brick facades, nods to the "olde world" with corbels and turrets, or even Texas prairie style featuring large front porches and little or no brick at all.
Desirable Floor Plans
Open floor-plans are most prevalent throughout Texas, and it's no different in the Alliance area. Living rooms open to kitchen and breakfast rooms are often separated by a large island or breakfast bar. If the home is a two story, the master-bedroom will most often be located on the first floor with secondary bedrooms upstairs.
Two story homes are most typical as today's buyers often want a room count that requires more square footage than can be accommodated on an average lot size.
Both Well Established and Newer
All Grown Up & Looking Good
The Alliance area has been on the radar of home buyers for many years. Folks started looking that direction for access to more affordable land as Southlake, Keller and now Trophy Club grew and built out.
As an example, the neighborhood of Heritage, generally considered to be close to the southern edge of the Alliance region, was one of the first additions in the area with home construction beginning in 2001.
The vast majority of residents in preowned homes throughout the Alliance region are required to be members of their neighborhood association. Just like the newer neighborhoods, these established areas also offer parks, greenbelts and trails.
No matter the age of the neighborhood, new or preowned, most all subdivisions in the Alliance area include community amenity centers with pools and ball fields plus the organizations to keep neighbors busy with everything from book clubs to children's playgroups.
Still Newer Homes, Often with Upgrades
It's also not unusual to find a home that's just a couple of years old in a neighborhood that still hosts home builders selling new construction. For those home buyers who don't have a requirement to choose every color or fixture in their home, these properties can offer a great value.
New home builders have a pretty good track record of raising prices at routine intervals. A home seller in a three year old neighborhood may be selling the very same floor plan and finish level as a brand new builder's inventory home, but at a lower price. It could be you'll find a home with a swimming pool, or over-the-top upgrades that come at a much reduced cost.
Because we work in completely opposite directions we needed to find a home that would let us "split the difference" in commute times. We really thought we were going to have to stay further east, maybe around the airport. But Cindy showed up how quick the drive time into Dallas could be on Highway 114. I'm glad we considered it because we were able to get a much nicer home for our budget.

The model public-private venture that is Alliance is growing its own reputation in the area, and across the country.

Your Perfect Alliance Home
Start Doing Your Homework Early
The Alliance area offers home buyers small-town values with close proximity to major urban amenities. Real estate in Alliance runs the gamut of home sizes and price ranges, and those searching new homes for sale in Alliance are often overwhelmed by the wide range of properties for sale.
Because the area is newer than much of the Metroplex, many homes for sale are newer. But there are pre-owned homes on the market as well, and they often offer buyers amenities not found in new construction. If you're considering a swimming pool, for example, you'll want to think about looking at a preowned property.
If you think the Alliance area may offer just the right home for you, give me a call. I'm more than happy to talk with you about your real estate choices and show you around the area. -Cindy
