Google best places to live and Carrollton is #4! Since I live in Carrollton and it's one of my primary area to work I can tell you there is every type of neighborhood imaginable. Starter homes, foreclosures in horrible shape and in decent shape, middle class neighborhoods, and newer to new construction homes available. In any suburb of Dallas there are many homes on the market at this time. I like it for many reasons: recreation, good neighborhoods at reasonable prices, shopping, convenience to major highways/airports, nice people, etc. A smart first step to purchasing is mortgage preapproval. It would be an honor to serve you with your housing needs. best of luck, Dale.
