Plano’s Hidden Gem Neighborhoods

Plano is on fire right now. This town is no longer just another Dallas suburb. It has grown into a thriving city full of distinct neighborhoods that cater to their communities. Businesses both big and small are moving north along with their employees and customers who hope to find homes near the action.

With all that demand, it’s no secret Plano has turned into a seller’s market. While the housing inventory is low with houses staying on the market for shorter periods of time, there are still neighborhoods in West, Central and East Plano ready to welcome new property owners. Dream homes await in these three hidden gem neighborhoods in Plano.

King’s Ridge | West Plano

West Plano especially has seen a boom of growth over the past few years. And with the popularity of the area quickly rising, it makes sense that real estate rapidly followed suit. But, Kings Ridge lets homeowners enjoy the best the area has to offer while still providing a slightly lower price point. The neighborhood’s average list price of $591,190 gives a little more bang for the buck when it comes to square footage. Plus, being near attractions like the Shops at Legacy, Arbor Hills and Shops at Willow Bend, residents can find plenty to do when free time allows.

Pitman Creek Estates in Central Plano

Pitman Creek Estates | Central Plano

Pitman Creek Estates has been around for years in central Plano. The neighborhood’s beautifully tree-lined streets lead into spacious lots, two local parks and a running creek. Many of the houses were originally built in the ’70s and ’80s, but flippers have been updating the area with tons of rebuilding. Homes go for an average listing price of $453,567. On top of all this, there is easy access to all of the area’s biggest freeways, so the rest of the city is just a short drive away.

Los Rios in East Plano

Los Rios | East Plano

Time slows down in Los Rios with its surrounding stretched rural lands and calmer sense of life. This neighborhood is perfect for young families looking to buy their first home. The relatively low price point and proximity to vibrant parts of the city keep everyone in the family happy. It’s easy to transition from a day spent near the country club to a night out in downtown Plano. On top of that, Plano has purchased the nearby golf course at Los Rios to provide a larger recreational area and park to the surrounding community. With an average list price of $266,111, now is the time to go in and buy a Los Rios home.
