    It is a buyers market right now, lots of home for sale with prices dropping. Verizon (fios) is available, at least in my area (Arlington)

    This is an immense area. Do some research and figure out which part of the metroplex you want to live in. That is a good way to start.

    Everything is within 20-30 minutes but it is a huge sprawled out area.

    You can get alot of house per square foot here.

    Housing market is better here than most places. Unemployment is low all around and Arlington currently enjoys a 3.8% rate.

    FIOS is available in only a few small areas in the market but stay tuned as they are working hard to become more of a player.

    I used to be a realtor in San Antonio and my advice is to get one to do the work for you, it's free. They get paid by the person selling the property. I'm currently using this lady's services:

    http://www.elverarose.com/

    Tell her The Dude from Hurst referred you.

    Make a list of needs and wants, example:

    3 bedrooms 2 baths 2 car garage

    2000 SQ FT

    brick exterior

    mature trees

    age of home

    taxes (Oh God don't get me started)

    etc

    lol:laugh2:.

    I guess I should have re-read that!!!!

    I meant the square foot price here is low in most areas, you can get alot more house in DFW for x amount of dollars than you can in most large cities.

    sorry about the ******** post before!
