If you have planned to move to Dallas, then a good decision canbe taken only by having a genuine look at the property where you want to invest. Dont take the decision in a hurry. Take your time and consult the best Real estate agents of the particular area where you are willing to switch. They can provide with best possible otions according to your desire. For a rough idea i'm giving you the website link : http://www.investmentclub360.com/ . Just take a preview and if you find it well then contact me in this:
Job search in Plano, Richardson area.....Oracle, HP, Dell, Perot Systems, etc.
Live in Frisco.
On the Ft. Worth side...probably SABRE in Southlake is biggest IT company.
Then live in Ft. Worth with Keller schools or in Trophy Club.
These will not be mature neighborhoods with lots of trees, but you will get newer house.
For this price range, I don't think you will find a lot of newer homes in mature neighborhoods.
In these neighborhoods people might pay for the lot for what you want to pay for the house.
Here are some examples in Frisco....
Employment are pretty spread out throughout the Metroplex. Irving, Addison, Plano and Richardson seem to have more IT jobs but that doesn't mean you won't get an IT job in Frisco or other cities. If you want a short commute to work then it looks the first step is to start contacting a high tech recruiter and go from there. Once you land a job then you can start looking for a home. I would highly suggest that you drive around the area after your meeting with the recruiter so you have an idea what Dallas and it's surrounding area look like. We have city zoning, you know, unlike Houston. Also let me know if you need a recruiter contact, I know of a productive one that I can refer you to.
Other things that you should consider is your boys. Do you know what university your boy is going to attend? If it's in Dallas, will he be staying with you? If so what is the commute time that is tolerable for him? Do you have any high school in mind for your younger boy?
There are plenty of nice areas here in Dallas, and good exemplary schools as well. So you have plenty of options, and I'd be happy to discuss with you about it. As far as home goes, you can get a nice home under $450k here.

Your question states you are considering a move to Dallas, however your criteria refer to Houston. Assuming you are considering a move to Dallas, there are a lot of IT companies along 75 in Plano/Richardson area. Plano is a great suburb in which to live with easy access to many restaurants and excellent shopping. Allen and Frisco would be good possibilities as well. Depending on location in Plano or Frisco, the commute to downtown would be 30 to 45 minutes, maybe more at heavy traffic times. We have a good highway and tollway system that can ease the commute.
Feel free to call me with questions. I enjoy working with clients who are relocating to our metroplex and would be happy to assist you and set up some custom searches to give you an idea of what is available in your price range. There is some new construction available in that range as well.
Hope to hear from you soon!
