2017 Best Dallas suburbs rank: 5

Click this best places to live in Dallas link for complete rankings, metrics and analysis methodology.

Highland Village public schools have the seventh highest composite STAAR performance index of all Dallas suburbs and its high schools, Marcus High School / Marcus Ninth Grade Campus, rank eighth among the 2018 best open enrollment high schools in the DFW metroplex. Highland Village also has the fourteenth highest percentage of owner occupied homes of all Dallas suburbs and the eighteenth lowest overall crime rate. Its prevailing tax rate is in the bottom quartile of property tax rates in the Dallas area. Some of the ways Highland Village is different from and similar to other DFW cities and towns are shown on these best Dallas suburbs and about Dallas suburbs pages.

Highland Village is located in south central Denton County, approximately 30 miles northwest of downtown Dallas and 37 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Highland Village's proximity to DFW International Airport, the Las Colinas business center and downtown Dallas is likely to make Highland Village residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.

Compared to previous year sales, on average, prices of Highland Village MLS-listed pre-owned single-family homes sold during the three months ending April 30, 2017 were up 7.4 percent ... median sales price of homes sold $388,500 ... home prices generally ranged from about $240,000 to $900,000 million ... average house size 3,200 square feet, average price per square foot $137.80 and average house age 25.9 years ... houses sold averaged 28 days on market ... 1.5 months average supply of homes listed for sale during month of April


Highland Village new home construction

Since there is little, if any, undeveloped land in Highland Village available for residential development, new home construction is very limited. The only subdivision in Highland Village where anything other than one-off new home construction is now occurring is Wichita Estates.

I frequently am asked by folks who have never bought a new construction home if they should be assisted by a buyer’s agent when selecting a builder and when negotiating their new home purchase. Most of the time my answers are "Yes" and "Yes."


Community amenities/activities

One of the truly outstanding things about living in Highland Village is its exceptional community amenities.

Commutes

Approximately 16 miles and 26 minutes drive time without traffic from central Highland Village to DFW Airport passenger terminals ... 23 miles and 27 minutes to the Las Colinas business center ... 30 miles and 39 minutes to downtown Dallas

Commute time and distance information for additional destinations, and for other DFW metroplex cities and towns, is provided on this average DFW commute distances and times page.
