Location. Location. Location. These are the three most important words for any homebuyer. So, what if you could live in a charming little town, located far enough away from the chaos and traffic of the big city, but in the middle of everything that’s important to your lifestyle needs? You might say “it was Fate” that drew you there. And you would be right. 

The small-town vibe of Fate, Texas and the sumptuous new master-planned community of Monterra have become a magnet for attracting families that are ready for something better. Better schools, better amenities, better recreational activities, and a better lifestyle are all found at Monterra. A large part of the magic of Monterra is its location.
