Hi, I've come to the end of another day with eyes totally crossed and I'm hoping I might get some clarity from those of you who are familiar with the Gardens of De Cordova in particular and Granbury in general. I'm preparing to relocate to TX from Phoenix, AZ. My daughter lives in Arlington and being a smaller town, private sort I not only am desperate to get out of the desert, can't breathe, but just as certain a move will be an expensive choice gone bad if I just switch big cities. Soooo, I've researched a big bunch of them so far.

The apartments look good online, but???? While I love the idea of the lilypad pond and all the green I'm thinking the mosquito's might be a huge issue. Rambling here, but if anyone can enlighten me in any way I sure would appreciate it!

Also how is the medical, grocery, retail as in Walmart availability? And anything else you can think of that would help.

My dad and his family were Hico and Odessa, I've lived in Galveston and League City many years ago so I have no current info at all.
Thanks for your time, and your help!

Default Granbury is great

Good morning... I have sold in Granbury and DeCordova and I can assure you, there is plenty of good in both locations. DeCordova is a truly gated community with their own twenty four seven security, beautiful homes, and the country club keeps the values up. Great area right near the water. Having said that, you are near water and with that comes mosquitoes. They are prolific anytime you are near a lake. DeCordova is a "burb" of Granbury and less than five minutes from downtown, historic Granbury. Shopping and walking is awesome downtown around the square. Plenty of retailers including Walmart, HEB Grocery, and too many to list. Check out their website for more information. https://www.granbury.org/

Having said that, prices vary widely depending on what you are looking for. Regardless what you do, make sure you get a prequalification letter before you start looking to buy. That area hits the market and is sold within days on average. Without prequalification you won't get an offer accepted. mod cut

I just wanted to point out that you can get your yard treated for mosquitoes and the treatment can be very effective. We use Mosquito Authority here in the Tyler area and we have lived here for five years and I have literally only seen two mosquitoes in five years. Two. And we live across the street from a creek and prior to using the treatment company we had a serious mosquito problem.

It's safe for pets - they just asked me to keep them inside while they are spraying and for 30 minutes afterward so the spray can dry. No issues whatsoever.

$79 every 21 days or $497 for 7 treatments.

I'll stay indoors....

Granbury is nice. We have parent's friends there (Harbor Lakes) and drive through quite a bit. All of the amenities you need. The downtown area is lovely. The lake is nice. Fossil Rim nearby if there are ever any grandchildren in the picture.

De Cordova is well maintained.

Only about 35-40 minutes from Arlington (we live there). Close enough for visits, far enough away for privacy.

I think you'll enjoy it there!
