Relocating to Texas Tips

Posted In: DFW Real Estate

Are you relocating to Texas? Planning a move to a new state can be both exciting and stressful as you determine where you want to live and what area amenities you’ll have near your new home.

Mustang Lakes is a premier DFW community featuring new homes by acclaimed home builders and award-winning amenities, including the largest amenity center in North Texas.

Check out some important information about DFW living to help you while relocating to Texas.

Fast-Growing Metro

The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is now the nation’s fourth largest metro area. Data from the 2020 Census revealed DFW is home to 7,637,387 residents. DFW is also one of only three U.S. metro areas to gain at least 1.2 million residents over the past decade!

This incredible growth can be attributed to numerous factors, including a favorable business climate drawing major corporations and a booming economy.

While city living can be exciting, many new residents relocating to DFW choose to settle down in the surrounding suburbs to find houses with more square footage and family-friendly amenities.

Mustang Lakes is positioned in a unique location on the border of three rapidly-growing cities: Celina, Prosper and McKinney. Away from the bustle yet conveniently close to the Dallas North Tollway and Hwy 75, Mustang Lakes homeowners can quickly travel to major area employment centers and top entertainment destinations.

Hot Job Market

DFW is leading the COVID-19 pandemic recovery, topping every U.S. metro area in labor market performance, according to data analysis by ThinkWhy. The report showed the Metroplex’s success was driven by net migration, job growth and wage growth.

Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Dallas include Exxon Mobile, McKesson, AT&T, Southwest Airlines and more. Major corporations like Toyota relocated to DFW, choosing the Legacy West business park for their headquarters.

With many more companies relocating to Texas, the job opportunities are only going to continue to increase in the DFW Metroplex.

First-Rate Education

If you’re relocating to Texas for work, you may be wondering about the quality of schools for your family. Dallas-Fort Worth area school districts are among the top ranked school districts in the state of Texas.

Students in Mustang Lakes attend the highly-acclaimed Prosper Independent School District. Ranked the No. 1 school district in the area, Prosper ISD boasts an impressive 15 to 1 student to teacher ratio and has an overall Texas Education Agency ranking of “Excellence.”

Mustang Lakes is also home to a Prosper ISD elementary school: Sam Johnson Elementary.

DFW is also home to 18 colleges and universities including University of North Texas, Southern Methodist University, Texas Christian University, University of Texas at Dallas and University of Dallas.
