Hey DFW crew.

There is a pretty good possibility that I am headed your way in the next few months.

Likely taking a job in Plano.

Will be looking for some advice on housing options (prefer urban over suburban), places to go, things to see, restaurants, etc.

And of course, riding.

Will let you know more as this deal unfolds - likely in the next week or so.

Job market is still pretty strong here in north Texas... but the housing market is as well.  Toyota is building their US headquarters in Plano, and the Cowgirls are almost finished with their new practice facility in Frisco... so housing is booming, again.  Depends on what part of Plano you want/need to live in, I normally suggest Frisco/McKinney, but there are other options like Allen, Lucas, Fairview and some others.  Not saying Plano is bad, but the demographics have changed some in the last 10 years.

Housing is indeed expensive right now, especially in Frisco, Allen, Plano and McKinney.  From the looks of it there is more than plenty apartments but I'm sure the prices on those is also pretty high.  I know Denver is also booming so it wont be much of a stretch if you own something there and sell to move into a comparable house here in DFW.  Right now many of us are hiding from the weather but we do stretch our legs early mornings from time to time plus this rain killed our Spring riding season.  Let us know and good luck.

I'm definitely planning on renting for 6 months or so, until I can figure out where I want to be.

Not a fan of suburbs, so I'd probably be looking in the city initially.

Yeah, I know that Toyota is moving there.  That'd be why I am.

The burbs here are not anything like Denver area so keep that in mind.  The cities I mentioned have just about everything you need and trust me you don't want to crawl up I75 or Tollway for work in Plano.  Our traffic is just like I25 or better yet that miserable stretch from the airport to downtown, rush hour time.

-snip- that miserable stretch from the airport to downtown, rush hour time.

We've got a train now.  waytogo

I should know more this week.

IMO, 'burbs are 'burbs - there's a reason I live in an old neighborhood in Denver and have money down on a condo in the River North neighborhood here.  But that's also the reason why I wouldn't be buying right away.

Train?  I'm up and down the slope for that to be effective.  cheeky

I still haven't heard anything definitive.

Lots of chatter, but no substance to back any of it up yet.

I wont tell you my waiting at airports but needless to say if I was an airport employee I'd be a millionaire.

Apparently, this thread may have jinxed everything.

Seems like the deal is on permahold at the moment.
