From what others have said on this forum, think about renting first before committing to a home purchase... all these cities, while close are going to have a very different feel and while buying is easy and plentiful here, selling is still a challenge.....

There are a lot of great apartments you can rent for 6 months to try the area out...

Princeally- where can these 6 month lease apts be found. DM me if you're able or direct me to the thread that discusses them. Thanks. I agree that leasing is best but to commit to a one year lease just won't work.

In the area around Presbyterian, there are almost no new homes being built. Basically, you are in an area that is almost 100% built up. Some redevelopment has occurred in the last 20 years but it's been very spotty. The suburbs of Carrollton, Farmers Branch, and Irving are not nearby, and are not within a quick commuting distance. You are limiting yourself to being very far out in the suburbs by insisting on a new home. There are some beautiful neighborhoods in or near 75231, but finding a brand new home will be extremely hard to impossible nearby. Of course I guess you could find a tear down in the Park Cities, and find a custom builder. As long as your budget is over $2 million or so.
