Now more than ever, young professionals are on the move for career growth and fresh experiences without hesitating to relocate in the process. Dallas, Texas, has emerged as a top choice, witnessing fast and consistent growth from young families from all corners of the nation. Recent demographic data from the U.S. Census proves this trend, revealing that nearly half of the Lone Star State’s 2021 newcomers were under 35 years old, with 20.5% aged 24-35 and 29.4% below 24. Families from high-cost states like California, New York, and Illinois have packed their bags and headed south, lured by Texas’s affordable housing, tax benefits, and thriving business environment. Let’s delve into why this region and its neighboring cities have swiftly risen as a favored new home destination for families.
A Playground of Entertainment Possibilities
Dallas, Texas, guarantees endless excitement for families of all ages. From big-box shopping and top-rated dining to a rich calendar of events and festivals, the city ensures residents are always engaged. Museums like the Dallas Art District, Dallas Zoo, and Perot Museum of Science and Nature offer family-friendly outings. The city’s sports scene, featuring teams like the Dallas Cowboys (NFL), the Texas Rangers (MLB), the Dallas Stars (NHL), and the Dallas Mavericks (NBA), caters to sports fanatics year-round. For art lovers, numerous galleries and the Dallas Museum of Art await. In the evenings, explore Dallas’ vibrant nightlife with diverse restaurants, bars, and music venues hosting year-round concerts and festivals. No matter how families choose to explore the city, they will surely never be bored.
For families searching for a new home, it’s not just about finding a place to live. Rather, it’s finding a place where children are going to grow up, make memories, and meet lifelong friends. For many Dallas homebuyers with children, one of the strongest deciding factors of where they choose to move is the availability of top-rated schools. Located just 30 minutes south of Dallas in Kaufman County, Wildcat Ranch residents benefit from an on-site elementary school, Noble Reed Elementary. This school is the newest member of the Crandall Independent School District, one of the best school districts in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Parents can feel at ease knowing their children are receiving a quality education within walking distance from their front door. An additional on-site school and an amenity center are also being planned for the future.
Affordable Texas Homes
Due to the high demand for city housing, the price of buying or renting a house is significantly higher than the cost of the same in suburban towns. Kaufman County has become a favored choice for those wishing to enjoy small-town charm with big-city access. Homebuyers have significantly more square footage and privacy, allowing families to feel secure and comfortable in their homes. Wildcat Ranch provides a wide array of single-family homes from the high $200s and was recently named one of the nation’s top 50 best-selling master-planned communities. The low cost of living and inexpensive homes appeal to many families and working professionals.
