Hi! This is my first post here, so please bear with me.

I was wondering if anyone knew what the new growing (but still with cheap housing) is right now. I was thinking of relocating to Keller, (We are currently in Lewisville, but I want to be closer to my parents in Azle.) but I want to know if there is anywhere near Keller that is a little less established, and therefore a little cheaper to buy a house. We aren't necessarily looking for cookie cutter homes, we want a yard for our children to play in, but are okay with a subdivision, especially one that has bigger lots.

Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Haslet. Justin, Saginaw, adn the Eagle Moutain area.

Sendera Ranch has 1/2 acre lots in Haslet. They start in the upper 250k range or a little higher.

You might be able to find some pre-owned homes in the area.

In Most of Saginaw you can also still get a 100% loan with good credit with a USDA loan

I would go with Decatur. It is growing a lot but isn't as far along yet as Keller. There is a lot of new housing developments there with really nice and affordable houses. We have a mix of the cookie cutter houses and houses with big yards and stuff. There is a lot of stores and restaurants there and a lot more coming. The schools are also really good and Decatur is ver family-oriented and most people there work in Fort Worth and Dallas. Decatur is only 20-25 minutes to Azle and 20-25 minutes to Fort Worth and 45 minutes to Dallas(maybe a little more if traffic is bad). Hope this helps!

Ya I Know! Decatur and Saginaw have grown a lot over the past 10 years. It has been amazing to watch it and I can also remember back when they were really small. This is happening to A LOT of areas around the DFW area right now.
