Why Finding the Right Job Isn’t an Issue in Haslet, Texas
For years, the Fort Worth area existed quietly in the shadow of the big city appeal of Dallas.
A few years ago, all of that started to change, and Fort Worth was named one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. This of course meant great things for Fort Worth, but also for the surrounding communities – like Haslet, Texas.
Haslet is a Small Town with Big Texas Charm
Located about 15 miles outside of downtown Fort Worth, Haslet has become one of the choice residential communities and has been gaining the interest of new home buyers. This is part of the reason why we chose Haslet, Texas as the home of our new Caraway community, but it was the time we spent in Haslet that sealed the deal.
While we could go on and on about all the reasons you’re going to love Haslet, we at Taylor Morrison know that you also have more practical matters on your mind when considering the location of your new home – like employment opportunities.
