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.

On average, prices of Highland Village MLS-listed pre-owned single-family homes sold during 2017 increased 17.4 percent over the prices of comparable homes sold in 2014 ... 2017 median sales price was $367,100 ... home prices generally ranged from about $260,000 to $1.2 million ... average size of houses sold was 3,060 square feet, average square foot price was $134.38 and average house age was 25.6 years ... homes sold during 2017 averaged 31 days on market


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
