Homes for sale in The Colony TX will not be hard to come by for a while.  Located just north of Dallas and surrounded by Frisco and Lewisville, The Colony TX real estate market is a growing one.  Formerly a part of Frisco, just more than 30,000 DFW residents call The Colony home.  Buyers and renters alike are flocking to The Colony.

the colony lifestyle

Buyers looking at homes for sale in The Colony TX have a lot to choose from, with 11,000 homes currently located in the city and more on the way.  The Colony was originally developed under home builders Fox and Jacob’s idea of a “dream city” comprised mainly of single family homes.  Homes for sale in The Colony TX attract young families and professionals with active lifestyles.

The development of The Colony focuses heavily on nature and sports.  The town boasts 23 miles of Lake Lewisville shoreline and 24 public parks, not to mention the waterscapes and activity offerings available privately to residents within developments.  The Colony is also home to an impressive athletic complex, golf courses, and a Hawaiian Falls Water Park.

For families looking at homes for sale in The Colony, Lewisville ISD serves the area and The Colony High School is located within the city.  Small and mid-sized businesses have set up shop in The Colony, too, providing jobs for both professionals and students.

what’s happening in the colony

Since The Colony is still relatively new and still “under construction,” you can expect numbers of new developments to pop up in the coming years.  Among the most notable developments is Austin Ranch, a retail, apartment, and condominium development designed by the same developer as the Dallas Arts Districts’ One Arts Plaza.  Both developments have been praised for their noticeably human elements and keeping beauty and comfort in mind.  Large areas of undeveloped land tempt developers with big plans as DFW grows north and buyers seek out homes for sale in The Colony.

Also coming soon is a marina by MarineQuest Corporation, to be located at the city’s Hidden Cove Park.  Two residential/mixed-use developments along Highway 121 are on the way, and construction is underway on the expansion of 121, as well as its conversion to a toll road.  High property taxes don’t seem to be much of a deterrent for buyers or developers.
