Another home is in the neighborhood behind the kohls/home depot off main st and n tarrant pkwy in keller. I'm just not sure how the commute would be to lockheed, may be a bit longer than we'd like.
yes the commute would not be as good as Saginaw.
That neighborhood (west Bursey?) is iffy. some nice homes and some run down ones. lots of cars parked on the street etc...
not my favorite area of Keller by far.

You would be better off looking in the Heritage area than Keller proper.

Traffic on Hwy 820 Westbound in the morning isn't too bad. The area around 35W & 820 is where it backs up. Saginaw is off Biz 287, and it's *West* of the 35W & 820 mess, so it's ok.

Saginaw is getting an ALDI too. There are several noisy railroad tracks in town, though. Parts of FOrt Worth wrap around it, so that might be something else to consider.

As far as crime, one easy way to lower your risk of an auto break in is to not leave anything in the vehicle. The most commonly stolen items are GPS units and laptops, and that's because they were left in plain sight. Don't leave anything visible in the vehicle, and LOCK the vehicle always! Sad that we have to do this, but the others are right - it's thugs from other areas that drive around looking for stuff to steal.)

Thanks for the replies everyone! We visited this weekend and decided on the house in fossil hill estates We really liked the area and hope to buy a home in the next few years in Heritage..loved it there! So how do you think the traffic would be around 6 AM taking 35W down to 820 (i think) and heading west to Lockheed? Is it just bad around the merge? We drove the route and it wasn't bad but then again, it wasn't rush hour either! Is there another way to take that would be quicker? Oh and how people drive on the interstate..esp in Dallas was a big shocker to us!! lol It's a bit scary actually..seems everyone is always merging, swerving..in such a hurry. Seems like you can't keep your eyes off anyone anywhere around you bc you never know what they'll do! And the roads can get a bit confusing but guess we'll get used to it

35W can get stopped due to the traffic going downtown, but once you merge onto 820 and head to Lockheed, you should be good to go! Maybe a few slow downs, but nothing extreme. There have been times we've gone that way and we were one of 3 cars on the highway, lol

Another option would be going through Saginaw, but with all those traffic lights, it can get backed up pretty bad at rush hour!
