My husband and I are looking to relocate. My husband's job would be in Arlington and mine in Irving. We are trying to find a good, safe neighborhood that isn't too crowded. (We are used to living in a city with only 2500 people) We would like equal travel time. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated!!

what is your budget---
there are smaller towns in the area than Irving or Arlington that mix and mingle without any clear cut boundaries but they do have smaller population numbers, local police, schools, yourth activities, parks...

what part of Arlington and Irving--they could be close or both could be 30 min+ from your house..
check the map...

Our budget range would be approx. 150k-225k. Children are all grown up so we're not worried about schools. We are more concerned with 1) safety 2) privacy yet able to be some what close to work and play 3) drive time to work, as noted earlier my husband will be working in Arlington and I will be working in Irving, I'm not exactly sure of where each location is in the cities as we are both transferring with our current employers and we haven't been down there yet. We will be giong down in a few weeks to scope out every thing. I'm just trying to get a general idea for the time being.

There are alot of areas for you to live. Some new homes and alot of older homes. I see the price of the home but what are you looking for in a home?

basically min. of 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, fireplace, garage, plenty of closet space and if possible a pool. again our biggest concerns are noted above. We're still in the investigation stage to see if this is for us or not. We'll be going down in a few weeks for a few days just to get a feel for the area but we both feel we need a change.

Except for the pools, there are even new homes in the west irving area that are in that price range. Easy access to Irving and Arlington. I dont think you will have any problem in those areas locating.

We deal with people every day in this stage, if you have any question just post them here. We deal with the internet buyer mostly.

I'd look at North Euless or Bedford. In between the two commutes. Better schools less crime.
