200-225K will be our limit. I'm not expecting a huge lot. If anything I am anti lawn and will probably fill it in with drought resistant planting beds! I'm not terribly heat tolerant (yet) and don't expect to be bouncing around in the back yard any time soon. The mamor issue is privacy or a sense of privacy anyway!
Currently we live on a cul de sac and so the angle between the houses widens and there is a good 20-30 feet between the rear edges of the homes. I know side by side on a straight street tends to be a bit squashed and I guess I'll have better luck hunting for a cul de sac lot.

I would probably count on 75.00 - 85.00/sq ft for what you are looking for if you want something newer that isn't upgraded to the hilt If it is closer to $100.00 sq foot, it should have granite countertops, wood floors, crown moulding and upgraded fixtures. That is general in the area. In some of the more exclusive neighborhoods, it is more of course.

you might consider Mansfield--it is further south than people have suggested but you can go up 360 right to the airport -- lots of houses on market there in your price range for a variety of reasons and schools are pretty good...depending on which zone you buy in...

My family opted for the small town of Haslet, where there are nice acre lot communities sparsely placed throughout the town and surrounding areas. It is Northwest ISD, which is growing, and with the improved taxes coming from the new homes going up, the school district is expected to continue to get better and better. If you would like to look at a website for some of the builders and homes going up around this area, you can look at: AvondaleDevelopers.com (Haslet's "Vista Ranch" community is number 4 on the map) I hope this helps.
