We’ve made the cut!

According to CNN Money, Texas has 5 counties in the top ten.  Houston and San Antonio are the other winners. In the immediate Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex the top ranking counties are as follows:

  • Tarrant County – #5
  • Collin County – # 7
  • Dallas County -#8

Tarrant County is the Ft. Worth Area, Collin County is located just North of Dallas and is the wealthiest county in Texas and offers many towns and neighborhoods to live in.  It is also home to the corporate elite of the Dallas Area, many which are located in Plano.  Plano is also #11 in the top 100 cities to live in Texas, find out why here. The best things about Plano are:

  • Close proximity to downtown Dallas & airports
  • Highly rated public schools
  • Real estate is still reasonable
  • Quality of life

We have felt an influx of people relocating to the metro area the past few years, Also, according to CNN Money, there was an increase of 37,925 that moved to Collin County from July 05 to July 06, and that number is a little bit more than moved to Dallas.  I have to confess to see all the growth and what has happened here the past 5 years is really exciting.

So, if your direction is Dallas Bound, these are the best counties to live in, and by the way I am partial to Plano, but I love Dallas too!  I have lived in both. The only thing I will say is that it does get a little warm in the summer, but that’s why we have A/C and swimming pools.
