Some of the things parents should consider when in search of a beautiful, quality North Texas home for your family include:
Swimming pools. Many homes in the area offer swimming pools, perfect for relaxing and cooling off on those hot summer days. However, make sure safety fences surround the pool, gates lock, and that doors accessing the pool area from your home have alarms.
Bedrooms. While a tiny bedroom may be fine for a baby or toddler, consider the room your children will need as they grow and become teenagers. Also consider their proximity to the master bedroom, storage space, and how they will exit your home in case of fire or other emergencies.
Family room, living room, or both? For families with children, you may want to consider a home with both a family room and formal living room. A formal living room is a great place to entertain guests while your tots play in the family room; as your children grow, the family room can become a game room, study/crafts room, or even an entertainment room for music, videos, etc.
Play areas. Take a good look at the backyard. Is it spacious enough for play sets, and is the area safe for your children (fenced in, free from trees with branches low enough to climb, etc.)?
These are a few of the factors families with children should consider when searching for that perfect home!
