Because most homes in Haslet are well under $600k. She would be buying the “nicest house on the block” which is not advisable in real estate investment.

She doesn’t have to spend her max budget? Also, new home communities such as The Vines in Haslet start in the 500Ks. Haslet ain’t cheap anymore.

Haslet has lots of entry level homes, nothing wrong with it, good schools etc...If the OP budget was 200-350k them yes I’d recommend it.
600k budget no. The market for 500-600k houses it’s a different ball game. N Keller, Argyle, Southlake etc would be a better investment

I would not consider Haslet for a hot minute if I were ready to spend 450-500K on a house much less 600K! Def Argyle, Southlake (although it's low for SL), Trophy Club (I don't like TC but many do), or Keller. Keller schools aren't as "decorated" as Southlake or GCISD but they are very good and have great programs. Many of the planned neighborhoods in Keller have been there for 20+ years and they have been kept up very well.

Hello,

As a resident of Keller and a local realtor, I think Trophy Club is a good area for you to consider. There are some newer subdivisions with growing families and a community vibe. I’ve been to basketball games at Byron Nelson HS and am impressed with the facilities and amenities too. I often see active young families biking, jogging regularly in the area.

Keller has the same feel as Trophy Club, it’s just larger and more spread out. Plenty of both established and new communities with a blend of new families all the way to empty nesters. Keller schools are well respected, so much that listings promote “Keller ISD” as big selling point. Niece & nephews have been here 5th through 12th grade & I feel safe walking my dog alone in our neighborhood.

I think both Trophy Club and Keller have what you’re looking for - it’s a very hot market right now with a lot of multiple offer situations plus Charles Schwab’s new HQ is driving even more interest to the location.

I still think there are plenty of homes available in your price range though, good luck on your search!
