We are in the process of trying to find a home in the Keller area. I have accepted a job in Las Colinas and we will be moving from Tulsa in about a month. We have made one house hunting trip to TX and will be heading back down this coming weekend and we really hope that we find something and get a contract on it.

Our realtor previewed a couple brand new homes by Plantation Homes this weekend. Anyone have any advice/information on them as a builder? What about the Saratoga subdivision? From our last trip, we seem to gravitate to that subdivision as it reminds us of where we live now.

Thanks for your advice/help

I don't live there yet but have also made a trip to check out the area for our big move. I think traffic may be a concern for the drive from Keller to work. I may be wrong but I hear from the 183/820 split in to Dallas is where plenty of traffic is flowing. Have you considered the other side of Dallas? I have looked at homes all around the area from Keller to west of FTW, down to Crowley, Arlington, Grand Prairie and Desoto. You might be better with a Grand Prairie or Desoto location. I have found you get a little more house for the money in Desoto.

I was looking at taking 114 to Las Colinas. We had been looking at Bedford, Euless, Hurst, but because of 183 and all of the traffic problems we have given up in those areas. I have watched the different online map programs every morning and night to see the traffic tie ups to see if there are better area.

We are also looking in certain parts of Lewisville, Flower Mound and Carrollton. I want to stay in that general area because of traveling a lot for work and proximity to DFW. We have looked other places, like Grapevine/Valley Ranch but nothing promising in our price range ($225K)

Have you checked into Lantana? DH works in Las Colinas and we are getting ready to buy a home in Lantana and the commute is doable.

I agree that Lantana would be a MUCH better commute than from NW FT Worth.

Depending on the time in the morning you go rthe 114/121 interchange can get pretty backed up. (it worse in the afternoon). But since you are staying on 114 it's not as bad, just a poorly done interchange, as I have found most of the freeways here are!
So depending on what you are used to it could be very bad or doable. We came from the DC area so most traffic around here is very doable. I'd say about 45-60minutes door to door.

I will have to look into Lantana. I haven't heard of the area, but the quick internet that I just did does look pretty good. Thanks
