Little Elm was originally chartered as part of the Republic of Texas in 1841. Little Elm is one of the oldest towns in Denton County and developed slowly over one hundred years right next to Garza-Little Elm Lake which has a lot of history itself. In the 1900s the community’s population and businesses began to grow and the town was voted to be officially incorporated in 1966. In the present day, the town’s original buildings and structures are gone, but the community works to keep the history and memories alive. Today the community is very tight-knit and there is plenty to do in town, and Dallas News says Little Elm’s growth is in line with cities like Frisco and Mckinney, which says a lot. Homeowners here have enjoyed increases in home values since 2012 and increases in median list price per square foot which is now only slightly lower than the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metro average. With a cool buyers market and 672 new construction home communities to choose from, it seems like the perfect time to find a dream home in Little Elm.
