Dallas Suburbs


Provided below are some key factors for deciding whether one of the 116 suburbs of Dallas profiled on this page, or somewhere in the cities of Dallas or Fort Worth, is the best place for you to buy a home. This information can be particularly useful when combined with the general housing and community desirability ranking metrics shown on this best Dallas suburbs page.

This page identifies …

  • Cities and town that are experiencing the most robust population growth. The fastest growing communities generally have greatest amount of new homes construction. However, it also is pretty unusual to find many, or even any, neighborhoods characterized by mature trees and unique houses in these communities.
  • Communities that are the most and least densely populated. This can be important since the more densely populated cities and towns are often perceived to offer quick and convenient access to more shopping, restaurants and other similar amenities and the less populated communities are likely to have less traffic and feel less crowded and perhaps also somewhat remote from where things are happening.
  • The general level of education and income of the people living each of these cities and towns. Related information about the level of interest in school quality is available on these best DFW school districts, best DFW k-12 schools, best DFW high schools, best DFW middle schools and best DFW elementary schools pages.
  • Where generally within the DFW area each city or town is located. As shown on this DFW commute times and distances page, commute times and distances can be a big issue when determining where in the Dallas area you want to live.
