Wondering what the commute might be from Heath to Love Field during rush hour. Would probably choose a house in south Heath, as to avoid the dreaded bridge and take 80 over. Tried to find it on this forum, but wasn't able to locate that particular info. Thanks for any insight you could provide.

Hellish. Utterly hellish.

It would be pretty awful. Showing 45 minutes at 8pm on a Saturday night. I'd add an extra 15-30 minutes during rush hour.

Mapquest shows it less than that from the houses we were interested in, but Mapquest can't always be trusted. Good to hear from people directly. Now I need either a transporter to beam me to Love or I need to win the lottery to buy a decent size house in the PCs.

Or you can just look for a house closer to Love Field.

Around $500,000-$600,00 with good high schools and decent sized house/yard.

Then...my god man, why HEATH?

Why don't you look in North Oak Cliff or something? You could always try for a magnet.

I wouldn't recommend Richardson because the commute to Love Field would suck from there too. Have you thought about some parts of Carrollton (some parts are nice), far North Dallas (not zoned to DISD), or Plano? It's not close to Love, but at least it's a straight shot down DNT.

um...good high schools???

hmmm Love Field...that's a tough one. Even with your VERY healthy budget, you are priced out of all the better school district areas that offer a great commute (which for you is basically the Park Cities). Maybe Far North Dallas with Plano/Richardson schools? not a great commute but...not many options here.

Plus, if someone can drop half a million dollars on a house...private schools might not be out of the question.
