texas: Bungalow Shopping and Flip Flopping - 09/24/09 01:34 PM

New home buyers can also purchase spec homes. The upgrades and … (0 comments)

One of my favorite photos, I admit it is a repost. Victory Lakes subdivision defines itself as well above ordinary with lovely landscaping and extensive walking/biking/jogging trails along the man-made lakes. There is a swimming pool, kiddie pool, tennis courts and playground. Feed the ducks who parade around the lakes! Multiple bunko groups and friendly neighbors. There are currently 6 sections and a selection of builders. Sounds great? Yep.
