Why You Should Live in the Suburbs of DFW With Sandlin Homes
At Sandlin Homes, there’s nothing we value more than building high-quality, carefully-crafted homes in tight-knit communities throughout the DFW area—and the suburban towns around the big-city hubs make for the perfect spots to call home. While cities used to have major appeal to young professionals and established families alike, many are turning to the ample space, remarkable opportunities and significant affordability that the suburbs can offer. From award-winning schools to one-of-a-kind amenities and so much more—read on to find out some of the amazing advantages of living in one of our Sandlin communities throughout the charming suburbs of DFW.
A serene atmosphere
If one thing is for sure—living in the suburbs definitely provides an unmatched amount of peace and quiet, especially compared to the often-hectic city lifestyle. From the natural beauty and soothing trees to the mellow atmosphere and laid-back environment—it’s no surprise that so many families are making the move from the rapid city life to the relaxed suburban neighborhoods. In Sandlin communities throughout the suburban DFW areas, residents truly do know their neighbors, and everyone appreciates the strong sense of community and unity—as well as the slower pace of life.
In addition, living in the suburbs often brings a greater sense of safety and security, allowing our residents to feel the utmost comfort wherever their home is located. Many families, especially those with children, are moving away from the high-crime cities and relocating to safer neighborhoods in the suburbs—which is exactly why Sandlin Homes builds throughout these incredible areas.
The suburban areas of DFW tend to have better public schools, as well as greater access and investment in programs like recreation, libraries and an array of other public and private amenities that cater to their residents’ interests. Throughout the towns in which we build our Sandlin communities—from Ponder to Joshua and Mansfield to Waxahachie—there are endless opportunities for local entertainment, especially outdoor activities, that you can’t find in the city. Many suburban areas throughout DFW have a large network of public parks, jogging and biking paths, and lakes and ponds nearby that encourage residents to enjoy time outdoors—as well as a wide range of restaurants, shopping centers and places for entertainment.
For working professionals in the family, our communities at Sandlin Homes are within an hour drive from the lively downtown areas of Dallas and Fort Worth—ensuring that you will always have access to fantastic job opportunities, even while living in the suburbs. With top-rated school districts throughout the areas in which we build, your children are sure to receive an education that exceeds expectations—especially with a much better student-to-teacher ratio compared to those in bigger cities. With close proximity to both Dallas and Fort Worth combined with the plethora of amenities within the suburbs, you truly get the best of both worlds without compromise when you choose Sandlin Homes.
A better price tag
Among the biggest benefits of living in the suburbs is the significant affordability compared to living in the city. Homes in the DFW suburbs tend to be more affordable than similarly-sized homes in the major cities—which can translate to a lower overall mortgage payment or an upgrade in the features and size of house that you can afford. Additionally, rental prices continue to skyrocket, and you might be beginning to feel as if it’s getting harder to justify letting all of that money go each month when you know you won’t get it back. The truth of the matter is—a monthly mortgage will typically be similar to what you are already spending on a city apartment with less square footage and little to no outdoor space, while buying a home in the suburbs is a valuable investment that has longevity.
Additionally, owning your own home with an abundance of space allows for so many opportunities for creative freedom, whether it’s sprucing up your backyard with furniture or choosing your own finishes and features—you can truly turn any of our Sandlin floor plans into the home you’ve always envisioned.
There’s no doubt that living in the city has its perks, but the benefits of suburban living certainly make it worth the move. Enjoy the slower pace of life by relaxing and unwinding in the comfort of your own home from Sandlin Homes—whether it’s in your spacious bedroom, unified great room or green-filled backyard. Explore your community and discover the local shops, bakeries, restaurants and boutiques in close proximity to your home, and if you work in the city—take advantage of your new commute to get the perfect balance between urban and suburban living. Get to know your new neighbors and get in the groove of your new normal—and don’t forget to enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with making the move to the suburbs.
