What's the difference between

Dallas and fort worth?



When you drive through the DFW Metroplex, you may get a little overwhelmed as it just seems like one big metropolis. You may not really know which city you are entering until you see the water towers. So what’s the difference between these two cities? 

MEDIAN HOME PRICE

How much does it cost to live in each? 

First up median home price in Dallas is a little bit more expensive than on the Fort Worth side.

The median home price in Dallas is $466,000 for Single Family Home. 

The Median of Fort Worth is $350,000 so a little less out West. 

Lot Sizes

North Fort Worth suburbs LIKE Keller, Southlake, Flower Mound, and Argyle, tend to have larger lots with more trees.

What Makes Texas So Special?


Texas is not like any other state you've been to. Want to know what's so special about Texas? I visited the Texas state fair to share a little bit about it.

Own Country

The culture, courtesies, families, and over 268K sq miles of land to settle down in, Texas is like its own country! And many have actually dreamed of making it that way. Texans get pretty protective of this place. We feel like there’s no place like Texas in the world!

In this blog, I'm going to share some reasons why people are moving to Texas from all over the world!

The first reason many are moving to Texas that I hear from families is they love Texas because it is a very kid-friendly and even pet-friendly state.  The lifestyle here in Texas really is desirable for most of the people moving here and what's interesting is we have a good family lifestyle, especially in the suburbs but if you're single there's plenty of places in Dallas to move and to Texas, if your lifestyle is for the country.
