FLOWER MOUND REAL ESTATE & HOMES FOR SALE

If you’re interested in Flower Mound real estate, you won’t have to look far to find residents praising the city’s atmosphere and convenient location.  While Flower Mound homes for sale are becoming increasingly sought after, the city is taking great strides to manage its growth and maintain its small town character. Read more about Flower Mound or view Flower Mound homes for sale below:

Flower Mound is located near Lake Lewisville and along the shoreline of Lake Grapevine just 28 miles northwest of Dallas.  The town occupies 44 square miles and is only 44% developed, making Flower Mound real estate somewhat more difficult to come by than that of other cities in DFW.  The city boasts a low tax rate and also prides itself on being a safe community.  Flower Mound’s population grew 29% between 2000 and 2007.

Flower Mound Lifestyle

Prices for Flower Mound real estate are all over the money map, ranging from the 100’s all the way to over $1 million.  The area offers a good variety of home sizes and ages, with good lots located off of a few charming FM (“farm-to-market”) roads.

Flower Mound’s population is proudly affluent; according to the city’s own website, it “is home to a young affluent, well educated population with an average household income above $100,000 and family size of 3.12 persons per household.”  This statement in itself reveals a lot about the town, which strives to remain decidedly rural, with small-town conveniences like boutique stores and burger joints and just the slightest bit of some city life peppered in for good measure.  Interestingly, Flower Mound officials and active residents refer to it as a “town” rather than a traditional city.

Nearby DFW airport sees a fair share of travelers from Flower Mound, and Flower Mound real estate is conveniently located near Grapevine Mills Mall and the Bass Pro Shops outdoor mega store.  Time Warner cable’s South-Southwest division provides 1,400 jobs for Flower Mound residents.  Before the construction of DFW Airport in the 1970’s, Flower Mound’s population was less than 2,000.  Increasing bodies and growth in the areas surrounding the airport created a demand for Flower Mound real estate, and the town proper evolved.

Despite tremendous growth, the town wants to stay small.  In 1999, residents adopted the Strategically Managed And Responsible Town Growth (SMART) program to control certain aspects of Flower Mound’s growth.  This approach could prove to be a nice benefit for those looking at Flower Mound real estate, as they can be reasonably assured that they will not be burdened by the more unpleasant growing pains that other cities may be experiencing, like traffic, crime, and declining community involvement in larger issues.

Flower Mound schools are part of Lewisville ISD, meaning that residents can take advantage of the benefits of a larger system without living in a big city.  There are also a remarkable number of private schools considering the size of the town.

Flower Mound’s primary town center is the near immaculate Parker Square, a conglomeration of office and retail space that includes a charming candy shoppe that provides tasty, guilty pleasures for those who office nearby.  Two nationally recognized golf courses give residents the opportunity to hit the links while discussing local politics. Though not as culturally diverse as other DFW cities, Flower Mound residents are friendly, conscientious, and genuinely concerned for the neighbors and community.
