Plano, TX Real Estate and Community Information for Home Buyers
The History of Plano Real Estate Spans Four Centuries in Collin County:
The history of Plano's real estate market dates back to the 1840s when Kentucky settlers who purchased land from the Peters Colony constructed Plano homes near what is now West Park Boulevard.

The demand for Plano TX homes for sale increased during the 1870s after ranchers began to use the Shawnee Trail to transport cattle to slaughterhouses located in Collin County. Many of these ranchers constructed ranches that played an important role in Plano's economy for more than 100 years.

Many of these Plano realtors created successful advertisements that were printed in Dallas-area newspapers and magazines. Most of these advertisements featured single-family homes that offered home buyers many amenities including large yards, modern garages and gourmet kitchens. 

Plano TX homes for sale are now located in a beautiful Dallas suburb that offers home buyers a wonderful public education system, a solid economy, safe neighborhoods and many fun attractions. These benefits offer Plano home buyers who wish to relocate to the greater Dallas area a tremendous value that is hard to match in the Texas real estate market.
