The secret is out — the suburbs of the DFW metroplex are incredible places to live, buy a house, and raise a family. But the question often remains… which suburb to choose and which house to buy? 

Finding your dream home in the Dallas suburb you want to live in can be very difficult and overwhelming. There are so many factors you’ll be taking into consideration: schools, safety, location, price, home design options, job opportunities, nightlife, and more. 

If you’re looking for a city that’s right outside of Dallas with an incredible school district and brand new master-planned community for your family to grow and thrive in, then Midlothian, Texas is the place for you!

Beazer Homes (Selling in Summer of 2022) 

For nine generations, Beazer Homes has built houses that families are proud to call home and put customers first through the whole process. In particular, their Choice Plans™ service, which offers flexible floorplans at no additional cost, is a favorite of buyers and an aspect that helps them stand out from the crowd. 

Choice Plans™ allows buyers to personalize your primary living areas without paying extra for it. For example, you can choose whether you want your kitchen to be crafted for entertaining purposes or more family dinners and whether you want an extra large shower or separate bathtub in your master bedroom. It’s a nice perk to have these options and it’s not something you’ll find with every builder. Often, a change in a room means a whole different floor plan with a different price.
