In 1863 Alexander Dechman filed a title on his prairie land and established what today is known as Grand Prairie! Today there is plenty to do here, like take a walking tour of the historic downtown where residents and visitors can also enjoy shopping, dining, entertainment and revitalized parts of the past like the Uptown Theater. There are plenty of new businesses setting up shop here as well as 375 new construction home communities available to choose from. The housing market here is very competitive and there is an equal advantage for both buyers and sellers here. The future looks bright as Grand Prairie has watched their average home values increase consistently since 2012. From whatever position you are active in this market, Crosstown Engineering is happy to assist you.
