Grapevine. Low crime and low property taxes. Great city services, including an awesome new community center/gym and plenty of parks (once the lake goes down) and walking trails.

In Irving if schools don't matter. Great community with great parks, DART, new entertainment complex going in, close to Dallas and Tarrant county. Great easy back roads to dfw airport and short drive to Love Field, too!

Northgate Dr. turns into Rental Car Row. It's the easiest access to DFW there is, and there are houses in the Irving Heights area in your price range that would let you get across town to DFW without touching a single bit of commuter traffic. Eventually that area will also benefit hugely from expansions in Las Colinas (and whatever eventually replaces the old Texas Stadium, though there's political football with that).

Irving has real issues with its schools, but if you are wealthy and can afford houses in the 300-350k range, there are plenty of options available.

Thank you for your replies, would you recommend Euless as one of the good options?

I would recommend Euless if schools were important. Otherwise, Irving offers so much more as a city.

All the pp have given good suggestions IMO. One more super cute neighborhood w/ pretty good proximity is Hometown NRH. The bonus with Grapevine and Hometown NRH is the schools are good which helps w/ resale. Irving not so much but man, there are some really nice residential areas that I didn't even know existed over there! $$$ prob goes farther too since you don't have the school mark up. Euless itself is kinda boring but has great proximity to so many things.
