Currently looking for my mother in law, but have been challenged to find something in her size. She is looking for an older home around 1K to 1400 sq ft with a little bit of yard in a neighborhood.

We have been looking at Fossil Creek area of Fort Worth, Saginaw and Lake Worth. Do ya'll have any other suggestions?

Thank you in advance!!

Guingirl, what about Watauga, Keller or the Mid Cities area? I don't know if Roanoke has anything you are looking for but it's not far from the 35W and the Haslet area.

Bedford has couple of garden home neighborhoods -- one is new, still under construction, but 2-3 are older---know retired couple who live in one and they really like it--downsized when he retired and stayed in Bedford where they lived before because they have daughter and family here--if you do an mls seach for that sq footage you should see what they have listed--there re homes for sale but they are pretty stable communities--not many houses listed normally...
colleyville has one set of townhomes--older and really not that attractive to me--look more like apartments gone private--
I think Hurst might also have something like you are looking for--but not for certain...

Lots of places come up in MLS seach for Keller--Villages of Woodland Springs in Keller might be place to look- like 21820 Coyote Ridge or older neighborhoods--some of those might be kind of iffy--Keller does have some bad areas despite making Money's list as #50---

12913 Hurricane which is in McPherson Ranch in Haslet

Did you seach MLS for Roanoke--some of those listings might be TOO old but
104 Ivy is new house that looks like an independent builder----iif it is in Marshall Creek township that might not be so good but that area is supposed to get annexed by Roanoke or Keller I think

or Azle--if you aren't really worried about schools, Azle might be good place--there is growth out there

Yes I know a great little subdivision in the Bedford area. I use to live there - It's a Townhome subdivision and price ranges are in the low 80's to 120's. It's a really nice area of Bedford. The subdivision was started in the late 70's and finished in the mid 80's. It has a pool, tennis courts, and a club house with all sorts of activities going on. They do have an older group that play cards at the clubhouse every week. Also mostly important, they have a great reserve in the subdivisions bank account which maintains the buildings and covers insurance. (big saving). If your interested let me know I can help

Sounds great but does the townhouse have a backyard at all? One of the other things she was looking at was having a little garden.

More information would be great!! Thanks!

That sounds like a really nice complex - I would also be interested in having some additional info. Sometimes the HOA fees are real killers! Thanks for the help.
