Any ideas about which area is better for a new home? I have no children and have a budget of between 200K-300K. I work on the North side of Fort Worth. Looking for a quite, safe area that will hold it's value

If you work on the north side of FW, I highly recommend Keller. If you live in Aledo, you'll spend a lot of ga$ on driving. Also, there are more things to do on the Keller side of FW than the Aledo side.

if you want to hold your value and have no children you might consider buying insde FTW--think with the gas/energy situation like it is and NO public transportation outside the city limits, that soon older properties in fTW that are on bus lines and in reasonably good areas worth revitalizing are going to be more popular...
you would be buying something that might not be in the "popular" area like Keller now but in 5 years your move might be seen as providential...

Aledo is a nice small community but it's kinda far removed. also it's out west off of I20 so yes you would be driving alot.

Keller is a good option and there are some nice homes in central Keller in your range. There are some nice condo in the "town center" region.
I live in Keller and we like it.

another area close to your work area is Trophy club, it's kinda removed and isolated if you had to get to Downtown FW but it's a nice community and it's growing.
