Frisco Lifestyle | What’s Happening in Frisco | Frisco Quick Facts

Both DFW newcomers and local homebuyers are increasingly seeking out Frisco, TX real estate and Frisco homes for sale.  Evidence of this lies in the fact that Frisco is the fastest growing city in North Texas, and the second in the U.S. Read more about Frisco or view Frisco, TX homes for sale below:

Although the population of Frisco was just under 30,000 in the 2000 census, it was estimated at just fewer than 100,000 in 2007!

Located just to the north of the Plano real estate market and occupying parts of both Collin County and Denton County, 69 square miles of prime Frisco Texas real estate lies within the city’s borders.  It’s also just minutes from Plano’s Legacy business park and boasts the second lowest crime rate in Collin County.

Frisco Lifestyle

One of the things that Frisco real estate agents often point out about Frisco is that the city is extremely community-oriented, with a focus on boosting the city’s internal economy while maintaining the lifestyle of its residents.

This commuter town is located perfectly for those who want to enjoy the advantages of Frisco real estate while working downtown or in nearby cities.  Due to the plethora of nearby big business, Frisco enjoys a certain amount of affluence.  Nearby employers include JC Penney’s headquarters and EDS.

Frisco takes great pride in the availability of family friendly activities within the city’s borders.  The Dallas Stars practice facility is located in Frisco, and other sports teams that call Frisco home include a minor league baseball team, the FC Dallas soccer team, and amateur hockey teams.  Participating in and watching these sports is a big draw for those looking at Frisco TX real estate, as well as neighbors from all over DFW.  Pizza Hut Park in Frisco hosts sporting events and outdoor concerts that attract fans from all over the Metroplex.

With Frisco’s growth and kid-friendly environment, it’s no surprise that the school system is evolving, too.  Frisco ISD is currently comprised of nine schools, including four high schools.  The area schools recently moved from level 3A to 4A for extracurricular activities.  In addition, the Preston Ridge campus of Collin County Community College offers a technology campus that boosts local educational opportunities for both teens and adults.

What’s Happening in Frisco

Frisco is the home of the largest mall in North Texas: Stonebriar Center Mall opened in August 2000.  Perhaps even more popular, though, are the Frisco locations of furniture mega store IKEA and discount jewelry and accessories market Sam Moon Trading Co.  On any given weekend, these stores and the surrounding area are packed with shoppers from all over DFW.

The city’s new downtown development, Frisco Square, is an up and coming town-square style development that maximizes a great piece of Frisco Texas real estate in the center of town.  The design of the development is 1920’s-inspired and will be home to offices, retail establishments, restaurants, and entertainment.  Frisco Square will also be home to the city’s local government offices and library, as well as residential space that will bring Frisco real estate to a new level.

For adventure seekers, Frisco boasts The Superdome, with an outdoor cycling track, natatorium, and fitness center available to members.  The Warren Sports Complex offers an 8 acre stocked lake, and the city also has 12 public parks for even more family fun.

With new developments and lots of growth, Frisco residents have noted that traffic is becoming heavier through areas where construction and popular shopping destinations are popping up, but these issues should be alleviated within the next year.  Another commuting concern may be that, rather that offering DART light rail access through the city, Frisco chose to use a percentage of its local sales tax to fund the Frisco Economic Development Corporation (FEDC) instead.  The FEDC reallocates tax dollars to commercial development, which has been a mixed blessing for some who have purchased Frisco real estate.
