The power plant is not in Granbury, it's in Glen Rose and is well maintained. I never think twice about it and have never felt unsafe.

Cleburne, Granbury, Godley, Cresson, Bono, Weatherford, Rainbow, Glen Rose, Tolar, these are towns/small towns south/southwest all within an hour, a little more or so from FW, depending on traffic, etc.

My husband and I were both born and raised in Texas ...Dallas/ft worth area ...I love it and miss it. The people and the food are the best. We lived in haslet area prior to moving out of state but we loved it ...alittle small town feel. I like the haslet ...or Keller area. We also lived in northern and southern Arlington areas.

I doubt you'd regret a move to North Texas! It's a great area, and growing.

My partner and I just bought a house in Summer Creek Ranch (South Fort Worth). It's a terrific area, still considered the City of Fort Worth, however we are really just north of Crowley, TX, in North Crowley ISD (Independent School District). Just to give you an idea of what we found, our house was $137K and it's 2,018 sqf, 3bd/2ba, 2-car garage, in-ground irrigation, one level, built in 2005. Our lot is nearly 9,000 sqf. It was a VA-owned property, but it appraised at nearly $20K higher than what we paid for it. There are deals to be found! Check out Realtor.com - I've used other real estate sites but this one seems to be the most accurate. Zillow is often outdated and misleading!

As far as the south end of the city, there's a lot going on. Some of the better small towns are Cleburne and Mansfield, from what we've noticed. To make it even better, they are just in the finishing stages of the new Chisholm Trail Parkway (toll) which is a new freeway connecting outlying southern suburbs (namely Cleburne) to Fort Worth via a 15-20 min drive, depending on how far south you are. This means avoiding the often-crowded I-35W. The entire far-south end of Fort Worth is booming with new construction, but we only found several homes in the $90-100K range, and they needed a little work but nothing too major. Again, Realtor.com will be a good resource.

I hope your move is successful and you enjoy living in Texas! At least you're already used to the heat...LOL!
