I may have a job offer to work in Oklahoma city.. I am sort of use to the country or rural setting.. I have 2 dogs and they love to walk.... wondering if there is any nice suburbs outside of the city... It is just me so a small house with a decent yard would be optimal...and any other general info about the city would be appreciated. Thanks!

We were also more interested in the rural setting when we came to Oklahoma City a year and a half ago from Kansas. The houses in town were built right on top of each other and I could not stand the idea of buying a home right on top of my neighbor's with no trees. We are moving back to Kansas now, so check out our home in Harrah at the following link: Moderator cut: no advertising on this forum. Please take it to the classifieds section

It might be more house than you are looking for, but it is in an area like what you described...

I'm wondering why you decided to move back after a year and a half. If you were more interested in a rural setting why did you move into the city? I'm not being condescending or sarcastic, just curious. There are many areas in and around OkC that could provide you with the environment that you seek. Nevertheless, I wish you the best of luck in your move.

I'm sure a lot of the OkC natives and other folks who live in and around OkC will help you out. There are a lot of neighborhoods that could provide you with that type of environment. Keep in mind you may have a trade-off with the environment that you seek and drive time to work. Also keep in mind that OkC traffic is NOWHERE near as bad as it is in most major cities. I currently live in the DFW metroplex and OkC traffic is WONDERFUL compared to here. Commute times in OkC are really great.

Depending on how much you expect to spend on a Home, you can easily find the type of environment you're looking for. I'd recommend Choctaw & Harrah to the east. On the west side, I recommend Yukon & Mustang. South would be Moore or Noble. And North is Edmond.
These are all suburbs within OKC, so check the surrounding areas when you start house hunting.

With the price of gas looking like it has no where to go but up who wants to live in the suburbs, or other city, if they don't work there? I've always lived and worked in the same city all my life and find it hard to relate to this feeling that one has no hope or choice other than to have to live in a different city than from the one you work in. But then I know there's some people who absolutely like the appeal of living in the countryside and won't have it any other way. Well, ok, but good luck with all the pollen allergies.

We are only moving back to Kansas because I have accepted a once in a lifetime job offer that came my way. I should have been more thorough before - We love our home in Harrah and would not be selling otherwise. As for Yukon and Mustang, why would you want to commute into the sun in the morning and into the sun in the evening?

Because they're great places to live.

Default Linwood neighborhood you will love it

This neighborhood has a huge sense of community and many many children from ages 0-18. They have many get togethers and are like a huge family. These are all historical homes and there are a couple for sale. One I wish I could have is located right on the sought after blvd. Great place to live in OKC....quick access to EVERYTHING zip is 73107
