Yeah, that's certainly not an overriding factor and it probably wasn't worth mentioning, but the small kitchens and upstairs master bedrooms are a lot harder to overcome.

I agree. We loved that area of Grapevine/Euless, too. At the time when we were looking to buy, there were few listings there, so we ended up west of 121.

I'll throw in my biased opinion and agree. We got lucky and found something in our price range (first-time home buyer) just south of MidCities Blvd and Bob Eden Park and jumped on it. Absolutely love the area but you're right--there seem to be few listings when I check once per month.

At one point in time Grapevine was building lot of homes w/upstairs masters because that was what people from the east coast and north like Chicago were used to
And the lots in Grapevine were smaller so houses had to go UP vs out...

It is just a physical artifact of how the towns in the mid cities area developed

Now newer developments in Grapevine have usually adjusted to the design factor and have the master down if they can’t accommodate two masters...

The growth/desire of the two master suites was really impacted initially by having more SE Asians move into this area who are caring for older parents and needed two masters on ground floor...from what I have seen...then just a general desire to care for aging parents...

There are some homes where remodeling has been done to turn a formal living room into a bedroom to gerrymander a 2nd master...it is usually not a change that works for the better since they are often at the front of the house and lack privacy but in a hot housing market people are often pushed into making choices for themselves that aren’t what others would choose..

Keller is super expensive. A meth house would still be $300k there.
If anyone can afford Keller or Colleyville, of course that’s the place to go. But for us slightly lower middle class people, my opinion is that north Bedford provides a nice balance of safe Mayberry suburbia without breaking the bank.

No, it isn't. I know some fine folks from Keller, but the "Keller Stepford Wives" are funny. Well-off enough to sneer and look down their nose at you, but bitter because they don't live in Southlake.

Yes—must agree there are developments in Keller that are “wanna-be” Southlake or even Westlake
Keller is just too isolated if you have to work in FTW/DFW IMO
There are not that many main roads for infill traffic to escape on
We looked there 10 yrs ago and thought it was that way
Don’t imagine it has seen many two lane roads upgraded to 4 since that would be city expenditure

Bedford has lots of charm and history. My ancestors helped start both Bedford and Hurst. The airport coming to the Mid-Cities in the mid 1970's solidified property values. As a golfer I just wish their were more golfing options close to Bedford. Other than that we have always been proud of HEB schools. If you need to be centrally located you can't argue that the distance to downtown Fort Worth or downtown Dallas is something that has remained important to Bedford.

This post started in 2019, I think the OP has long moved into the house.
