Hi possibly relocating to the FW area. Looking for the best schools & best neighborhoods. I prefer suburbs with a real "community" feel but want to be close to good shoooing & food. Good park system is also a plus. 300K to say 700K Don't even know what areas to start researching.

Well...Fort Worth and the Metroplex is really big. It all depends on what you describe as best as far as neighborhoods, because really that is subjective. Anyway, your best bet would be to do some past searches on the forum, perhaps download the Dallas Metroplex Visitor's Guide on Relocations (it breaks down different cities and areas and why they are popular). (here is the link - http://www.yournewcomerguide.com/Dal...ving-to-dallas )

It really depends on where you need to commute to and how long you want to sit in traffic. Also get a good map of the area and understand what parts of the city you want to get to.

The price range you stated some areas you might look into - Hidden Lakes in Keller, Southlake, Colleyville, Grapevine, North Hurst. Those are North/Northeast/MidCities of Fort Worth. Benbrook, Hulen, Ridgelea - South West/West Fort Worth. Eagle Mountain has some nice properties that start out on the high end of your budget but they are right on the lake with private docks.

Can you please tell us where you'll be commuting to? or do you telecommute? Also, what grade are the kids in to give you a better idea on schools. Any special needs? Don't worry about the food... lots to choose from.
