Is this a nice area to live? My husband and I will be moving to DFW and this sounds like a nice area.

It is but do you know where you are working? You have to be careful with traffic. Hope you have kids or you may feel left out

If you post more specifics on what you enjoy and which fields you work in, we may be able to provide better input...

Smile Frisco

I work in Frisco and I like it. It is kind of an up and coming community right now, lots of new growth, lots and lots of amenities. Stonebriar Mall is a wonderful shopping mall if you're into shopping as many of us ladies are !It has several sports teams if you're into sports. As someone else intimated, it is very family-oriented in Frisco. It really depends on what you are looking for in a community, but yeah, Frisco is a very nice place.

If you like to hang around the house - sticking to the northern burbs will work for ya - you get a bit more house for the money than being in close to downtown. If he works in the computer field, he shouldn't have a difficult time finding a position. DFW has a good chunk of tech jobs - although Frisco is a little north, just ensure he's prepared to have anywhere from a 15 min to 60+ min drive to work, depending where he gets a job.

I'd definitely recommend you consider renting until you find jobs. The Metroplex is larger than New Jersey, and a commute from Granbury to Garland, or Waxahachie to Frisco would get very old, very quickly if you're locked into a mortgage.

Definitely follow his advice. This is also the advice given by many others such as myself.

The housing market here is pretty flat and moves slowly, there should not be a rush to get into anything right away. Technically, most of the homes coming on the market today will be there in 6 months when the lease on your apartment is up. Find out where you belong, both from a personally and professional basis. My mind has changed 25 times in the 6 months I've been here.
