My husband has a new job in Westlake and we are looking for a home within reasonable driving distance. I have already researched the high schools so I know the area is OK for us. I am curious about Tahama Bluffs in Ft Worth, Roanoke, Northlake, flower mound, Argyle. I’ve also looked online at some houses in Keller. We would like a house less than 8 years old. Our budget is 300k-350k. May go up to 380k for right house. Also Canyon Ridge is nice, but HOA seems high. Does it include something I’m not aware of? Thank you in advance future fellow Texans!

All of those areas are nice areas for families, and they have good schools.

Pay attention to the property tax rates. Each city's tax rate is different, and you can save a lot of money by living in one city vs. another. For example, Fort Worth's city tax rate is 0.805, while Grapevine's is 0.289. Here's the website where you can compare taxes: https://taxonline.tarrantcounty.com/...calculator.asp

Also, your husband might want to avoid having to use 377 for his daily commute. It is only 2 lanes, and there are not currently any plans to widen it. The road gets very heavy traffic, and it has also had some fairly bad accidents on it. Personally, I avoid it whenever possible. The alternative is going further west to I-35W, but that does add time and miles to the drive.
