Looking For A North Texas Home In A Healthy Neighborhood?

north texas home

Whether you’re looking for a home in Flower Mound, Frisco, Plano, Coppell, or any outlying suburb in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, it’s important to know that some neighborhoods are geared more toward a healthy lifestyle than others. If a healthy neighborhood is important to you and your family, how can you know which are best? Our North Texas real estate professionals have a few hints.

Lots of trees. Who doesn’t want a nice shady area in the summer months where you can relax? A lush tree canopy not only adds beauty to the environment, it’s also good for you in terms of reducing stress. Beautiful trees can enhance the value of your property, and shade your home so your HVAC system doesn’t work overtime during the hot summer months.

Be observant when you’re driving through the neighborhood. What do you see – or not see? Are neighbors out jogging or walking their dogs? Do you see children out riding bikes or playing catch? Socializing is important to good health, so you want a neighborhood where neighbors become friends and engage with each other.

What’s available in terms of recreation? You can find out a lot about parks, lakes, sports facilities, and other recreation opportunities by looking up the neighborhood online, or touring it yourself. Look for hiking or biking trails, fitness centers, parks, playgrounds, even a golf course if you’re passionate about the game. Neighborhoods with these amenities are generally those where residents are focused on health and activities for the kids.

Are essential services located conveniently? Where are the doctor’s clinics, day care facilities, supermarket or farmers market, hospital, and pharmacies located? If they’re close by, that’s good news – even better if most are within a distance you can easily walk!

There are lots of indications of a healthy neighborhood, if you pay attention and look! Bicycle lanes and sidewalks indicate people like to walk or ride rather than always depending on a vehicle to get from point A to point B. Look around, ask around, and you’ll learn whether the neighborhood is one with a focus on health.
