I just moved to the Berkeley neighborhood and love it. Great old houses, lovely neighborhood, good schools. 76110 is the zip code. Close to downtown. Sidewalks. Trees. Very nice.

Also Keller has some of the best schools in the area.

Also, check out Southlake/Grapevine Areas. Although your commute will be the easiest and shortest in Keller (particularly heritage).

I live in The Bluffs and $500k will buy you about 4700sq ft and all the various community ammenities. Also safer than the surrounding neighborhoods. ($250k will buy you basic 2500sq ft on small lot)

The shopping center at the west end of Heritage is also now in full swing with Costco coming soon.

I work in downtown Ft Worth and takes me 25-35min (I leave at 7am and 35min to get home at 4:30pm)
We also have the latest tech in the houses including Verizon FiOS etc.
Just make sure you get all of the insulation you can get as it gets hot and cold here and will save you $$ all year round.

Keller or North Richland Hills are both family friendly, good schools, affordable and not very far from Fort Worth.

I agree with hopeinaus. I also live in 76110, in the Ryan Place neighborhood just SE of Berkeley Heights. Only 3 miles to downtown Ft Worth, and I'm sure you can find a nice house for much less than $500K!

I made the commute to downtown FW from Grapevine for a year and unless there was a wreck on 121, it only took 30 minutes, tops. It was almost all against traffic, too.

I agree with this. Coming home is even less than 30 minutes, in "traffic."

The 76107 zipcode sure doesn't look special to me. More like a bunch of small houses in a lower to middle income area.
