Hi my husband is starting a new job in Jenks, Oklahoma. We are looking to move in the next couple of months. We are looking for a good area in and around Jenks in the price range of $300,000-500,000.
We have 2 children under the age of 4 so we would love to have a nice yard (acreage) if possible, with trees, possibly a pool and a good neighborhood that has aminties! PLEASE help. I also hear that some of the areas have rolling hills which I love.

Tulsa doesn't have a lot of areas like this. Most developments with acreage don't have HOA and the ones that do are on smaller lots. Stonebrooke in Jenks would fit your bill but you'd be in the homes on smaller lots under 1 acre. If you wanted to be in BA, you could probably get an acre but it is flatter over there.

Hello,

Inventory regarding what you are looking for could be difficult to locate in Jenks. There have been homes that meet some of your criteria that have been listed in the past and go very quickly. The subdivisions with amenities will have smaller lots.
Do you want to stay in the Jenks School district, South Tulsa or would you consider Bixby as well?

What are good neighborhoods in this area? Do some have views of the rolling hills? We really don't want a cookie cutter neighborhood! We would like something with good resale value and possibly walking trails and parks.

Cheryl, I would really consider other areas if 1) good school district 2) resale value 3) kid friendly 4) easy commute for my husband.

I lived in the DFW area for many years prior to Tulsa and traveled to Houston often. If you haven't had the opportunity to travel to Tulsa it has some unique and beautiful subdivisions, some older neighborhoods will have bigger lots but may not be updated.
To help you while your still in Houston you could compare school districts on the internet for future reference for your two young children.
If your Husband will be working in Jenks you will be in close proximity to the Creek turnpike, and 75 that could open up your search.

I'm in Owasso, and while it has some great things (like a comparable school district), it's flat as a pancake except for one neighborhood, which might be of interest, but factor in the drive. One good thing is prices are rising here as Owasso is experiencing rapid growth right now, but that means most houses are McHouses, including mine, as the inventory of nice older homes just wasn't there to start with.

However, there's some areas that are technically Claremore or Collinsville, it's a LONG way from the amenities of big-city Houston, but you can buy a LOT for your money.

Plugged in a couple numbers, and as you can see by this example, you can live pretty dang well up here on your budget...

23675 S Courtney Ln, Claremore, OK 74019 is For Sale - Zillow

Benton, I'll be moving to Tulsa soon too and also from Houston but with a much smaller budget. I also want to live in the hills since I've lived in Houston most of my life and hate flat land.


Good luck
