Hi there, :-)
My family recently moved to Texas in the Frisco/McKinney area. It is nice, but now we really want to concentrate on trying to find a smaller, less expensive house so we can pay the mortgage down quickly and be debt free one day. The kicker is though that I really would like some land - and no HOA. An acre would be nice, two would be too much for our price point I am sure. My husband works in Irving. I talked this over with our realtor and he made the cheap areas, like around Fort Worth, sound like crime riddled danger zones and/or the worst commute ever. I am sure this is true in some areas, but it can't be true in all of Fort Worth or other less expensive towns! So, since you ladies who live here and know it well, can you tell me what cities around Irving (like within about 25 miles) would be inexpensive and safe to live in? Anywhere we can have a house with land- and still be safe? And a decent drive? He has me all freaked out!
Thank you for any wisdom you can share!
