We're looking to move out of Dallas around the same time. We're sad to have to leave. We've only been here for 1.5 years, but my husband job requires a relo. Please check out the link below.
Here's some more info about the area, for what it's worth:
I was RELENTLESS with research when moving to Dallas from Des Moines, IA. I used the Neighborhood Scout website (highly recommend it)-- and researched schools and neighborhoods to minute detail (looked at schools, crime rates, quality of life, diversity, etc). We narrowed our search to South Lake and Allen. Opposite sides of Dallas. I am SO glad we went with Allen. While South Lake is lovely, what I love about Allen, that South Lake does not have, is DIVERSITY! My caucasian daughters, coming from Iowa, now have best friends from India, Finland, Germany, as well as many from around the USA. Meanwhile, some friends of ours recently left South Lake because their daughter who is part Latina, was getting harrassed for the color of her skin in school-- in the third grade! It is also getting a reputation for being all about what you have, how you look, etc. We don't feel that kind of pressure here in Allen.
Again--both are lovely communities... but I highly recommend you ask around before making such a big investment.
It's 4 bedrooms + an office on mainfloor that could be a bedroom--has full bath. This neighborhood is SO awesome! HUGE mature trees (highly unusual in a brand new development!), creek, pool and spray park... biking trails. We're going to miss it.
