Buying A Home In Dallas

Are the northwest Dallas suburbs of Argyle / Double Oak area, Colleyville, Coppell, Flower Mound, southwest Frisco, Keller, Grapevine, Highland Village, west Plano, Southlake, Trophy Club and Westlake the best places to buy a home in the Dallas area? Many people obviously think so. More than 380,000 people now choose to live in this relatively small section of the suburbs surrounding Dallas.

Or perhaps it is the park cities of Highland Park and University Park, or north Dallas that are the best places to buy a home? It certainly can be argued this is the market's verdict. With recent house sale prices averaging more than $350 per square foot, residential real estate in the park cities is by far the most expensive in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex. While homes sell for a lower per square foot average price in north Dallas than in the park cities, north Dallas also is where a large majority of DFW's highest priced luxury estate properties are located.

As would be expected, each of these cities/towns/areas has its own distinctly unique character, but still in some respects they are more similar than different ...

Assisting hundreds of clients with selecting and buying homes in the north Dallas area and closely observing the entire Dallas Fort Worth residential real estate market for more than a decade has made it clear to me that home buyers are most likely to find the northwest Dallas suburbs and park cities/north Dallas to be the best places in the greater Dallas area both to live and to buy a home.

This conclusion is supported by the market analyses provided in the Best Places To Live section of this website. Additional, more in-depth analyses, plus descriptions of the various cities/towns/areas located in the northwest Dallas suburbs and the park cities/north Dallas areas, are presented in the Northwest Dallas Suburbs and Park Cities/North Dallas sections.

If you are considering buying a home in the Dallas area and the northwest Dallas suburbs and/or park cities/north Dallas areas are reasonably convenient to your work and other frequent driving destinations, you definitely should take a look at them. The towns/cities in both of these areas are really great places to live.
