My wife and I are in our mid-twenties (no kids) and we are looking at buying our first house. We both make pretty good money and our price range is ~200,000. I work in Las Colinas and she works in Addison (off the tollway), so we have been looking in the valley ranch/coppell/lewisville/carrollton area. I was just wondering if anyone might have suggestions on places to live for people our age. (We aren't really into bars and clubs, so that rules out condos in uptown.)

We will eventually have kids, so while schools are not a primary concern they are somewhat important.

Where I live in North Hurst the housing is very affordable. You could get into a sweet house for 200K. And, it's not but a 20 or 25 minute commute to Irving/Los Colinas from here, unless there's some kind of bad traffic tie-up. I'd look into Keller or North Richland Hills as well. Hope this helps!

Oops! I neglected to see that your wife works in Addison. That would be too much of a commute. Lewisville is nice; I'm sure you could find some great places there, and it's about the same commute to Addison and Los Colinas from Lewisville.

Coppell and Carrollton are both places you may want to consider. They are quite different in terms of demographics, however. In Coppell, the median income is $98,000 while the Carrollton is $50,000. Coppell is a much more exclusive, smaller town that Carrollton. Coppell's population is about 40K, while Carrollton's is 120K. Coppell has a lot of young people with the median age being 35. Both are nice cities, it just depends on what you like. I have a friend who lives in Coppell if you need a reference point. Just let me know.
