My family will officially be moving to the Haslet area in a few weeks. We have spent some time in the area and driven through some communities but are still undecided as to what would be the best fit for us so I am looking for advice from some of you who have more experience in these areas. We have been looking at Decatur, Rhome, Haslet and Justin as I will have a M-F commute to the hospital in Decatur around the 830-5 hours. We want to rent for a year or two before buying anything and the rentals seem sparse in Decatur. We were looking at some rentals in Shale Creek in Rhome or Sendera Ranch in Haslet as well as Harriet Creek in Justin. We are looking for a 3/2/2 single family house under $1500 a month with a nice fenced yard for our son. He is not school age yet so the school isn't so important now but will be in a few years. I have been told Haslet is really convenient but when we drove thru the neighborhood Sendera Ranch was so large and overwhelming we didn't really see much of a downtown or shopping area. Same with Rhome and Justin. Can anyone share where those amenities would be in relation to these communities too? Thanks in advance!

Sendera is a planned subdivision which turned into a prairie dog colony.

You have the relatively new shopping center anchored by a nice WM on Avondale RD, Saginaw and Keller within a few miles. Unless access roads have been updated getting in/out during peak times takes a while; tends to be standing traffic to the traffic light in Haslet.

Heard good things about Rhome from someone I know who lived there. I think it's also a shorter commute to Decatur.

I would go with Rhome since its on the west side of 35W in Wise County. That will make for a much shorter commute for you. Justin would also work, although the roads around there are very congested at peak hours.

We live just to the west of Rhome and are in Decatur frequently. The drive is only about twenty-five minutes from our house ... about ten to fifteen minutes shorter than it would be from Sendera Ranch or Shale Creek (located on the far east side, at the Wise/ Denton County line).

But you are right: only Justin has anything close to a 'downtown.' It really is quite quaint as well, preserving a small-town feel, and at least boasts a proper grocery store. At Sendera Ranch you would be near WalMart and the new shopping center to the south - on Highway 287. Here in Rhome proper, we feel thankful to have a Dollar General store (which is about a five to ten minute drive from the Shale Creek subdivision)!

This whole area is beginning to grow, though, and the next five years likely will see more retail development.

My daughter is now in high school, but loved her experience at elementary school in the Northwest ISD.

There are also many young families who live in both the Shale Creek and Sendera Ranch developments so, while shopping may be further removed at this time, the social opportunities for your family might be good.

Best wishes!
