Problem is homes move fairly quickly in Sunnyvale and it has a limited inventory. This is a home I just found on Realtor but unfortunately it is already pending.... But this would give a good idea of what you can get 15 miles east of Downtown.

Thanks! I just discovered sunnyvale and it's darling!

Quick other question for anybody who has time, do people ever talk about like "what's the plan if there's a tornado?" Or would I be a lame out of towner if I did that?

If you are at home- You put on athletic shoes (IF your house does get blown away, you don't want to be barefoot walking through glass & other debris) and go to the center most room of your house on the lower floor (hall closet, bathroom, etc) which is the safest. If you have a bathtub in a center room, get in it and cover yourself with a mattress.

If you are driving - if you can quickly seek shelter (lower level of parking garage or similar), do. If you can't, do not park under a bridge or overpass. They become wind tunnels in a hurry.

Despite knowing all of this by heart, I've lived in Dallas almost 40 years and have never seen one or been near one. They are scary but do relatively little damage (lots of damage to a compact area) compared to our hail & windstorms (moderate to severe damage in a very wide area).

Thanks for the tips, but like, with a kid, if he had a play date with a friend + I mentioned something [just in case, like an emergency thing] would I be the weird mom? Haha, I know emergencies rarely happen, I'm in the home of earthquakes + we've never had "the big one", but I would just hate to not say something + wish I had

Umm, yeah, you would be weird. My grandkids stay home when the weather is THAT bad. We do have mire warning than the Midwest seems to have, maybe b/c of geography?

Haha thank you! I figured that's just what we would do (if the weather is bad stay home) but obviously didn't know haha. Thanks for the response

Surprised no one has mentioned the millinenial power - 23 year old buying 600k house, wow just wow

Also, I'm a North Dallas fan - Plano & Frisco are worth looking at

Haha, we're just fortunate to have helpful family. Like I mentioned, we've been with my parents for over 2 years saving every dime possible, and my husband was an athlete for a while so we were able to squirrel away his awesome pay days for a while. We try to defy the typical millennial stereotype

We've looked at both! They both seem to be a good size, are there any parts that are better than others or that we should avoid?

Professional athlete getting the big contracts? Did he get traded to a Dallas team?

And to answer your question, anything allow the tollway (west side of those 2 cities) is good (both for convenience, urban development, school for kids) and is also a premium. But 600k you can afford most anything
