Grapevine Texas but you are on the low end of the price range.

you are going to be hard pressed to find 1/2 acre+ under 250k.

If you forget the 1/2 acre you have alot more options.
Grapevine, Keller etc...

For larger lot size you need to look in older neighborhoods..Hurst, Bedford, parts of NRH, Saginaw, and some areas south..Burleson, mansfield etc... Aledo might have something too.

Where is the job location??
the "area" is huge and you don't want to live in NW FT Worth and have a job soputh of Downtown!

I love Aledo and it has very good schools (and they are smaller in size)
It has some hills and trees etc... BEAUTIFUL homesites, some on acreage.
It was just a bit too far out for us. Esp with 3 older kids driving etc...(for activites movies shopping)

Depending on what area you will cover...Cornith near Denton is another great little area. But it may be too far as well.

where do you ever find good to great schools that is not IN A SAFE AREA?
those two pretty much go hand in hand in my opinion--
don't they
anyone with contrasting opinion?

and I bet you have a hard time finding a half acre lot/house in Aledo under 250K that is less than 8 yrs old--

How about Rhome? Lots of land out there... It is a little isolated but in the area of a great neighborhood school ---> Prairie View. Check it out.
