We have recently moved here and considering buying a house in DFW area possibly in Keller or Watauga. Are swimming pools common in the area homes? Also, how long does it typically take to commute to dallas? Your advise is much appreciated. Thanks.

you can Google map any address and add about 15 min to the time for work day driving

pools are common
look at any MLS site and depending on the price range you will see them--
less expensive homes don't usually have pools because 1--yards are usually smaller and there is not really room and 2--putting in pool adds to cost--usually that would make the home really overpriced for the neighborhood--sometimes that is not smart to overprice your house

will PM a good MLS site that allows a "pool" as search feature

It depends on your price range. Many of the newer communities have one or more community pools especially in the starter home category. Newer homes have smaller backyards which also make it hard to put in a pool.

But yes, depending on your price there are quite a few homes around with pools.

When you say "Commute to Dallas".... is that downtown, Las Colinas, the airport, North or East Dallas ???

The answer there is 30 to 90 minutes depending on your destination. Tell us where you will be working & we can narrow that down. If you are working Downtown Dallas, there might be better areas that meet your needs.
