When you’re looking for that perfect place to plant your roots, there are so many factors to consider. At HistoryMaker Homes, we believe that a beautiful home isn’t enough when it comes to your future — you deserve a hometown that checks off all the boxes on your list too.
Considered one of the best places to live in the country, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex offers plenty of options for life, work and play. We can’t wait for you to experience the magic for yourself, so take a look at our top five reasons you’ll love living here:
Relatively Lower Taxes (Compared To Certain States)
Texas has no income tax and no vehicle property tax. The absence of state income tax may offset any increase in property taxes. Overall, tax rates in Texas have remained remarkably stable in recent years, though there have been minor fluctuations in some locations. However, when seeking the lowest property taxes on a home in the Metroplex, don’t overlook the quality of the school district, or the county and municipal services offered. (Parks, libraries, swimming, other rec facilities.) Tax money also funds police and fire services, water supply, signage, trash pickup, recycling, and animal services.
Lower Cost of Living
Good news for relocating families: The Dallas/Fort Worth area ranks among one of the most affordable large metropolitan cities, from groceries to utilities to healthcare. The housing market in the area has consistently been one of the most affordable. Whether you’re thinking about moving here, or have just made the move, you’ll find a thriving community that measures up not only with its quality of life – but also with its affordability.
Major Employers (Fortune 500 Companies)
The DFW economy is thriving, and offers one of the highest concentrations of corporate headquarters (Toyota, State Farm) in the country. When you live here, you’ll have access to jobs in banking, IT, energy, medical research, healthcare, defense, and more.
DFW offers a wide variety of outdoor attractions. The Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden or Fort Worth Water Gardens are great ways to enjoy nature. As are the the local parks, lakes, and trails.
Shopping & Entertainment
DFW is home to every sort of shopping/retail experience you can imagine. Shopping malls, one-of-a-kind boutiques, galleries, antique shops, farmer’s markets… they’re all here! And most nights, live music echoes out of bars and theaters across the Metroplex. Fort Worth offers rodeos at the Stockyards, and weekend two-stepping at Billy Bob's Texas nightclub. Local sports fans enjoy cheering for the area’s professional, minor league, and collegiate teams.
