When it comes to buyers looking to relocate to North Texas, the number one question almost always is education – which school district or private school suits them. Everything else is planned around the commute to and from that school or school district.

In the Park Cities, buyers base their search on their preferred elementary school. For private schools, Preston Hollow is still strong, with the neighborhoods between 635 and Frankford growing in the luxury market because of the proximity to private schools.

Aside from schools, most people want green spaces, and walkability to shopping centers and fun things to do. Most relocation buyers are searching for a neighborhood that’s not so transient, so they tend to like areas that are more close in, for the stability and consistency.
