Hubby is wondering, are there any smaller towns near Flower Mound?
We are used to living in small towns, (under 20,000 population).

Though we have seemed to fallen in love with Flower Mound through months of researching!

Thx,
JD

Argyle, Highland VIllage and Copper Canyon are smaller, but pricier.

What is your budget for housing and where would you be commuting to for work?

you can check Google maps for that

smaller towns have +/- that might be different from those of larger ones
and small towns in TX might be different from those you are familiar with from your home area
they often lack the tax base to provide services like police/fire/streets--they often lack infrastructure like hospital/medical/shopping so you drive someplace else to enjoy those services

Add Double Oak to that. Backs right up to FM.

Thanks. Ill be researching those towns.
Researching TX towns, being over 3,500 miles away, is overwhelming ... though it seems like it will be worth the work when all is said and done.
Im so mentally exhausted. Back to read the forum posts, and checking out those towns.

and don't be surprised that all your research goes out the window when you actually get here and see what the area is like

the area around Flower Mound is meeting ground sort of between several different geological zones--
where the east TX piney woods, the panhandle/west TX flat plains, and the southern cotton farming lands comes together
so some areas have hills and trees and some are flat as pancake w/minimal trees

Another reason why it's a good idea to rent first in an unfamiliar area.

Trophy Club also backs up to Flower Mound. New High school and there are some areas of Flower Mound that are actually zoned for NISD. The high school zoned for that area of Flower Mound is Byron Nelson. It is beautiful and brand new. There are lots of new families in the area because of all the new construction. I am not sure of your price range, but there are some beautiful homes in a subdivision called The Vineyard in Flower Mound. We almost bought in there. Nice oversized lots and lots of trees. All the best!

Price range will be around $350k, as the property tax is outrageous to us. Plus figuring in HOA costs. We really want a low key, family friendly area, with nice, down to earth folks.
Twenty years ago we lived around 'keeping up with the Jones' areas, I'm too darn old for those games!
Just want some simplicity!

You can definitely find a place in Argyle for that price range. Copper Canyon still might be a little too high.

If you don't want a "keeping up with the Jones" area, then stay AWAY from Trophy Club!!!
