I find out tomorrow if my company is moving to Dallas. Probably will be in the Irving area. Any thoughts on where to live? Have to factor in schools. Probably looking in the 200-225k range for housing. Thanks for any info you can provide.

Flower Mound,Grapevine or Coppell would be the best options in that price in my opinion.

If your company will be in Irving, which is North of Dallas. You may consider Las Colinas (North Irving) has good schools and is centrally located within the metroplex. Your close to anything and everything, shopping, restaurants, golf, airport, freeway system etc.

There was someone else requesting some information on the area of LUNA and 635.
referral to: Questions about Las Colinas - Riverside/La Escena

There appears to be some developers building out a residential neighborhood in that area.


If you wish to be a little further out outlying cities include Hurst, Euless, Bedford, Grapevine, Irving, Dallas, Addison, Farmers Branch, Lewisville, Carollton.

Extended Drive(s): Keller, Roanoke, Flower Mound, Plano, Richardson,Garland.

Gas Eater Extended Drives: Prosper, Frisco, McKinney, Murphy, Wylie, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Cedar Hill.

Due to Budget confinements I did not include: Coppell, Colleyville, Southlake, Westlake, Trophy Club.

As everyone will tell you, rent first and get accustomed to the area. Traffic, commute times, weather.

Metroplex is the term for the DFW area, including both major cities, and their suburbs and exurbs.
