We have sold our house in Grand Prairie and are moving to be closer to our work in South Plano. We are undecided on which city to focus our attentions on. We like Plano, but can't find a nice house in our budget, so we are looking at other options. I'ld like your input, especially if you live in any of those cities. The new house has to be in a safe neighborhood in a good school district( two small boys going into elementary). The house needs to be under $150,000. We are an outgoing family with 2 big dogs, so parks are also a necessity! We are in it for the long haul, so i don't want a declining neighborhood. What do you think?????

McKinney or Frisco depending on if the job is closer to the Dallas North Tollway or 75. More house for your buck.

our job is closer to 75, and we'ld prefer a newer house or an older house with lots of updates over 1400sf with a yard.

They seem to be all over the place in Plano if you ask me.

Honestly, you 'mericans have a lot of cops full stop.

There is nothing wrong with the Plano PD. Clearly the posters aren't serious if they are talking about them being all over. I'm sure people in Dallas would be thrilled to have police who actually respond to things and gosh, prevent them.

Well, I live in Plano, work in Frisco, go to church in McKinney and frequently shop/eat out in Allen. So I'm kinda familiar with all of them. Maybe I'm biased but I prefer Plano. We have lived here 15 years and like it. (Don't think there's any problem with the police, by the way.) However, if you can't find housing in your budget that you like, I agree you should probably look further out. A lot of people seem to also be moving out to Murphy for better house prices.
