Time flies when you’re having fun here in McKinney, Texas. Craig Ranch is coming up on its 15th anniversary, and we still have many more changes in the making. Find out why everyone is choosing our DFW master-planned community to call home in this month’s edition of Developer’s Corner by David Craig:
Did you know that we are coming up on Craig Ranch’s 15-year anniversary?
Yes- the first piece of land we purchased for what would become Craig Ranch was closed back in 2000. How things have changed!! First we built the incredible infrastructure and secured the signature amenities that make Craig Ranch so unique. Then sales in our first big residential phase – Craig Ranch North – were spectacular and some new neighborhoods south of Stacy were started. When the national recession hit in 2008, activity slowed to a crawl through 2012, but we emerged from that into one of the most robust overall real estate markets ever – and Craig Ranch is at the epicenter of it.
With all of the new corporate relocation coming to the region, the timing couldn’t be better to launch new residential phases. The final residential property has been sold so there are over 1,000 new residential home sites under construction or in the planning stages to be delivered in the next three years by DFW’s top home builders.
We very proud of the outstanding line-up of builders we now have in Craig Ranch. Our new builders will include Ashton Woods Homes, Darling Homes, David Weekley Homes and Megatel. Beazer Homes and Landon Homes have just opened new model homes in Creekside and The Fairways, respectively. Established Craig Ranch builders like Huntington Homes, Our Country Homes and Nathan Carlisle Homes round out this amazing builder group.
We’ve got the most diverse lifestyle options, price ranges of homes and mix of amenities of any master-planned development in North Texas and new neighborhoods are sprouting up in every corner of the community.
The new neighborhoods will be priced from the $300s to $600s+ and a resurgence of the luxury market last year is keeping Huntington Homes, Sanders and a select group of preferred custom builders very busy in The Estates.
Craig Ranch currently has a little over 9,000 residents but it is estimated with the completion of the final phases of single-family homes and completion of our multi-family communities, Craig Ranch will likely have a total of 20,000 residents at build-out.
Spring is in the air and construction is going on everywhere. Get out and celebrate Spring around our beautiful community and pardon our construction as we have become one of the most active communities in the DFW market.
