Location, Location, Location! Texas Grand Land launches Tacoma Ranch

Low taxes and large 6 ½ to 10-acre custom homesites located only 35 minutes from Dallas.


On one of the most beautiful properties in Rockwall County and only 35 minutes from Dallas, Tacoma Ranch, a one-of-a-kind large-acreage community now has custom homesites for sale. Living at Tacoma Ranch puts residents minutes away from Rockwall, Royse City and Forney and yet features sprawling country views, mature hardwood trees, seasonal creeks and ponds. Tacoma Ranch also has underground utilities and fiber optics and is zoned to a fantastic school district. Plus, it offers an Ag-exemption – allowing you to save thousands of dollars each year in property taxes.

On November 10th Texas Grand Land will be hosting Tacoma Ranch’s Grand Opening Event. Starting at $149,900 for 6 ½- to 10-acre custom homesites, a price that is significantly less per acre than the 1- to 3-acre lots typically found in surrounding communities. There’s no time to waste as only 15 lots are available for purchase.

Terry Wheeler and Patricia Thomas, the co-owners of Texas Grand Land, are long-time residents of the area and can easily share just what makes Tacoma Ranch such a special community. “In addition to the natural beauty of the property, Tacoma Ranch offers the ability to own larger acreage all within minutes of city conveniences,” explains Wheeler. “Although Rockwall is one of the smaller counties (area-wise) in Texas, it’s also one of the fastest growing in the state” he says. The area’s growth has brought many significant changes in the last decade.

“Over the past ten years the Harbor on Lake Ray Hubbard has gained excellent restaurants, great shopping, a cineplex theater, and outdoor amphitheater, and a Hilton Hotel,” adds Ms. Thomas, with more popping up around the county. There are also new schools and residential communities. A minor-league baseball stadium, just minutes from downtown Rockwall, is set to break ground soon, giving sports fans in the area even more leisure-time activities to enjoy right in their own backyard. “The expansion of the highway system is allowing for continual growth. And all of this is only minutes away from the serenity of Tacoma Ranch’s expansive lots and highly sought-after country lifestyles,” Wheeler said.

Since moving to the area in 2002, Wheeler mentions that he has seen a steady upward trend in land values. “In many cases prices have quadrupled, and I see no end in sight as more and more families are moving into the area.” Ms. Thomas proudly points out that despite this rapid growth, the integrity and character of Tacoma Ranch will always stay firmly intact. “That’s one of the benefits of owning property in this unique development,” she says. “The surrounding communities are well established and, therefore, the residents of Tacoma Ranch will not have to worry about what might be built around them.” 

But what if you are not yet ready to build? There is no rush: you can buy now and build later.  “Tacoma Ranch is not a builder-controlled community; therefore, we don’t require the landowner to use specific approved builders,” explains Ms. Thomas. “Each property owner is free to contract their builder-of-choice and there are many qualified builders in the area.” This also gives buyers the freedom to customize their own home and property to meet their family’s needs. “We envision beautiful homes built within Tacoma Ranch taking advantage of the natural vistas and all the property has to offer,” says Wheeler. “Families will enjoy the Tacoma Ranch lifestyle. There is wide-open space for the children to run, play, have a horse or calf, or just explore the outdoors,” he adds.

An investment in Tacoma Ranch is also financially attractive. This is a rare opportunity to buy into a community and obtain land at a very competitive price, and then there’s that Ag-exemption which saves the owner thousands in property taxes. “Land is one of those rare commodities that they’re not making any more of,” says Ms. Thomas. “That coupled with the fact that Rockwall County is one of the fastest growing areas in the state, with one of the most robust economies in the country, pretty much assures increasing land values well into the future.” Tacoma Ranch will offer your family the advantage of being close to big-city conveniences while enjoying the freedom and beauty that nature provides. Don’t miss the Grand Opening on November 10th. Showings are by appointment only. Call 469-837-2808 or visit tacoma-ranch.com to book your appointment with Texas Grand Land now.
