To each their own I guess. $330K will get you a fully remodeled 4 BR ~2000sf in some of the most attractive areas of West Richardson, with better public schools than the majority of Lewisville or Frisco and a 10-15ish minute 1-way commute, even in traffic. I know a lot of people have to have newer construction and 3000+ sf, but if it were me, I think I'd be way more sane in a slightly smaller but better located house.

I was commuting between 1 to 1.5 hours one way every day and cut it down to 10 minutes one way by moving to Richardson. Could I have moved further out and gotten a bigger/newer house? Sure... but I spend a lot more time with my family and have everything I need here. Best of luck to you and I hope whatever you decide it's the right balance of house, schools, and your quality of life.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be offensive if you took any.

Can you find me a 5 fully remodeled 2000sf house in the most attractive area of West Richardson and post em?

No problem - definitely not offended! I just really don't understand why people would choose to commute for a few hundred extra square feet and newer construction - I've known a lot of people who've moved into new houses and had a lot of build quality issues.

I send you a DM since I'm not sure about the rules on posting real estate listings. I know it's not easy out there right now and I can sympathize being a recent purchaser myself. For what it's worth, coming from near Coit/Arapaho it takes me no more than 10-15 minutes to get to Walnut Hill/75 even in traffic in the morning. I sometimes go that way to take my kid to PreK which is in that neighborhood.
