10 Reasons Carrollton Is the Place to Live in the DFW Area
At Taylor Morrison, we know that there are a lot of factors that go into choosing the new community that you’ll call home.
The exciting part is choosing the home itself, but even before that, there are so many things to consider.
The value of a community’s livability to each individual homebuyer is centered around several core elements.
One of the most important is how well the community aligns with their current professional life and future goals.
When we chose Carrollton, Texas for our Hamilton Park community, we kept in mind all the amenities, comforts and conveniences that we know are important.
One of the things we love most about Carrollton is that it’s a fast-growing city with convenient access to the entire Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. This provides our Hamilton Park community with just the right balance between a quiet residential experience and everything that’s great about the big city.
Hamilton Park in Carrollton is a premier location that has been built with the professional in mind. If you’re considering a move to this gorgeous town, here are 10 reasons to seal the deal.
Reason 1: We’re Not the Only Ones Who Think Carrollton Is Great
We admit that it’s easy to be a little biased when it comes to talking about how great Carrollton is. We put a lot of thought into our communities, so of course, we could go on forever about why this Northern Texas town tops our list.
It turns out that we’re not the only ones who feel this way.
In 2015, Nerd Wallet named Carrollton as one of the best places to live in Texas based on several important livability factors.
It must be that the city’s charm has continued to grow because just this year, Niche also named Carrollton as one of the best suburbs to live in the Dallas Fort Worth area.
Reason 2: Top Employers Flock to the Area
At the risk of stating the obvious, Texas is a huge, sprawling state.
There are many great communities that would make for a wonderful place to build a life, except that the commute times are often unrealistic. This is especially true for people who are well established in their careers or are ambitiously looking for growth.
The fact that top employers flock to the Dallas Fort Worth area make Carrollton a prime location for the professionally minded. Major employment centers in the area include:
- Hewlett Packard
- Exxon Mobile
- JP Morgan Chase
- Liberty Mutual
- Pizza Hut
- And many more
Reason 3: Airport Access
There’s nothing worse than needing to get up way before the crack of dawn for a business trip because getting to the airport is an adventure in itself.
Carrollton is located a short distance from both Dallas Love Field and DFW International airports.
Reason 4: The Commute Is Easy
Carrollton sits in the heart of the Dallas – Fort Worth – Arlington region of Texas. It’s easy to access any of these major metropolitan centers from Carrollton.
Shorter commute times area major attraction for those considering moving into the area, but there’s another option for those who would rather not drive their own cars every day.
Carrollton is home of three DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) stations to transport you to and from the metro area, and it’s well positioned to become one of the primary transportation and commuter hubs in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex area.
Reason 5: You’ll Want to Introduce Business Associates to Your Community
When it’s your responsibility to host out of town business guests, it’s important to impress. Often out of town business associates are worn out from their travels and the over the top atmosphere of the big city can be a bit much to handle.
You’ll love bringing them into Carrollton where they can enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere without missing out on a bit of the Texas experience.
Carrollton is home to over 250 restaurants and several major hotels, making it a perfect location to host business guest away from the bright lights of the city.
Reason 6: The Weather Is Gorgeous
Texas is known for big skies and sunshine, so it’s no surprise that Carrollton has an average of 230 days of sunshine every year.
Access to gorgeous sunny skies provides a bit of an energy and mood boost – something that can make those extra long workdays a little more tolerable, but also, it’s nice to be able to kick back and relax by making outdoor plans for your days off.
The weather in Carrolton, Texas almost always accommodates.
Reason 7: The Community Is Growing
According to Carrollton demographics, the population has grown by 33.4% and is expected to continue to grow by approximately 4% by the year 2020.
More people are realizing that Carrollton is a precious gem tucked into the metro area. This type of growth sends signals that now is a great time to move into the area.
There’s something to be said for moving into a community and growing along with it. Sure, settled communities are nice, but there’s something different about being a part of the process.
When you move into one of our Hamilton Park homes, it’s a chance to build your life, career and community all at the same time.
Reason 8: You Can Clear Your Head
When work life gets hectic and crazy, it’s a good idea to step back, clear your head and recharge. When your home is in Hamilton Park, this is something that’s easy to do.
Carrollton is home to multiple parks and trail systems, like the Carrollton Greenbelt Park and the Elm Fork Nature Preserve Trail.
Go for a quick walk or run before work to clear the cobwebs or after you get home as way to let go the day’s stress.
