We're moving to the Fort Worth area this summer and would like to be within 20-30 minutes of driving distance to downtown. We prefer the West and Southwest parts of town and would like a community with a pool. An established neighborhood inside city limits would work for us also. There seem to be so many choices. We haven't had much luck with our Realtor just yet, and would like to know what others may suggest? we've looked out in Aledo and Weatherford, but wonder if the drive may be too far. Our children are grown, but we're not ready for wheel chair racing just yet. Robson Ranch is about 15-20 years away.

Thanks in advance for your help with suggestions.

Have you looked in Benbrook? Forest Hills? Lakeside? What price range are you wanting to stay within?

I have a coworker that lives in Benbrook and just built a new home there. We've also been looking in Aledo, Weatherford, West and SW Fort Worth. Our price range is $150-$200.

Thanks for your suggestions.

There is a community south of 20 west of 35w called Summer Creek. Check it out. Nice neighborhood with community pool and very decent homes in your price range.

If you decide to go NW of White Settlement, you will have a lot more to choose from such as Marine Creek, still within the commute time you desire and be in a nice community.

look in the area bisected by traillake drive, south of TCU, but north of I20. for around 200 you can find a house with a and you'll be 10 minutes from downtown and close to tons of shopping , nightlife, and what not.

second recomendation: the arlington heights neighbor hood is also a good idea, but prices are starting to rise rapidly so I doubt you could get a place with a pool < 200k. however, the location can't be beat. i-30 on south, camp bowie on north.

far south fortworth wouldn't be that bad either. especially since they're putting in a toll road to make it accessible. however, until that goes in you'll have a 30 minute commute to downtown, but you get a lot of bang for your buck
