As the city that Sports Illustrated named its 50th Anniversary Sports Town of the United States in 2003, The Colony has numerous places where sports buffs can enjoy themselves. This city of just over 16,000 residents, though, has much more appeal than just football. In addition to great attractions, The Colony was built as a "dream city" meant to emulate Dallas. With a constant population growth since its creation and consistent economic growth over its existence, The Colony just might have your dream home.

Great home valuations! The recent economic recession hit the American housing market hard, but it didn't seem to have the same effect in The Colony. Over the past 5 years, home values dropped nearly 5% in the rest of America. During that same time, values in The Colony have risen nearly 13%. In fact, there has been an 11% rise in values in the past year alone. Whether living at a home on Lewisville Lake or checking out rent to own houses adjacent to Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, residents are making a good investment in an asset that has been consistently rising in value over the past few decades.
Never stop learning! There aren't too many people who really enjoyed going to school as kids, but The Colony offers the opportunity to keep learning outside of the confines of a crowded room with a green chalkboard. Whether this means heading over to the Heard Natural Science Museum in McKinney or catching up on your human history at The Sixth Floor Museum in nearby Dallas, you'll undoubtedly pick up on something new (or old).
Affordable housing! Even though property values in The Colony have been on a consistent rise, it's still not overly expensive to live in the area. In fact, the average cost of a house in the city is about 14% lower than the national average. Even better is the fact that the cost of houses and condos in the area is only a bit more than the average in the rest of Texas. Considering the fact that over 60% of the houses in the city are owned as opposed to rented (much higher than the national average) and there's a list of awesome attractions nearby such as Colony City Aquatic Park and Hawaiian Falls, this additional cost isn't much in the grand scheme of things.
