I am a teacher with a masters in special education. My husband has family in Texas and wants to move to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I have read a lot of great information about best neighborhoods to live in, etc. My husband will be looking for a network computer support job, and I will be looking for a special education elementary position. Does anyone have any recommendations about employment opportunities for the both of us, good neighborhoods to raise a family and purchase a house for under $200,000. Obviously, Dallas/Fort Worth is a rather large area and purchasing a home prior to securing employment might entail an extremely large commute, but any information you can provide would be appreciated. The housing market there seems fairly reasonable from where we currently own a home, but obtaining a quality education for our children while at the same time securing jobs for the both of us is very important.

I'll admit that I'm biased, but I think you'll find that Grapevine meets a lot of your criteria.

Good schools, good neighborhoods, and you can commute to either Dallas or Fort Worth.

You can also find homes here for under $200k.

Knowing where you will be working would help a lot on narrowing down possibly cities, but I've found that Grapevine is about as central a location as you can find.

I'd have to say Keller. Great place to live. There is really no bad area here. We were #7 in money magazine: Best Places to Live 2009 - Top 100: City details: Keller, TX - from MONEY Magazine

Like the previous poster said, Grapevine is great too. Although I heard some areas can be expensive, and some aren't all that great.
