There are several different factors that go into deciding where to purchase a new home. Safety, school district, and cost of living are just the tip of the iceberg. You may be hearing a lot of discussion regarding the race to move into the northern Dallas neighborhoods, but there’s one city that consistently ranks at the top of the best places to live in DFW: Carrollton.
This lovely city was named the 3rd Best Place to Live in America by Areavibes and has gained much attention due to its livability. This includes cost of living, crime, education, employment, housing, and weather. Safewise.com also named Carrollton as one of the 50 safest cities in Texas. When it comes to finding a place to raise children, safety is always on the top of a potential homebuyer’s list.
Carrollton has no shortage of fun things to do. There are several beautiful golf courses to choose from including Indian Creek Golf Club and Coyote Ridge Golf Club. Sandy Lake Amusement Park is also a family favorite. You can picnic, swim, and hop on some fun rides all in a clean and safe environment. They also have several restaurants and shopping options throughout the city!
When people think of Carrollton, they generally don’t think of businesses. However, there are over 5,000 businesses in the city, and this number continues to grow each year. From large company headquarters to small family-owned businesses, the city is thriving among a highly educated population.
When you’re thinking about which Dallas neighborhoods to tour, remember to head to Carrollton. Normandy Homes is now building in a new community, Mustang Park. For more information, head on over to the Mustang Park community page today!
