Ft. Worth, TX vs. Haslet, TX – Which is Best for Your Family?

Choosing Family Home

Deciding Between Haslet and Fort Worth as the New Home for Your Family?

The process of relocating is one that deserves careful consideration. At Taylor Morrison, we know exactly how important this decision is, and we remain committed to building our communities in locations that our homebuyers will love.

There are so many great places in northern Texas to call home. One of the most popular locations for professionals is the Fort Worth area. We’re not going to argue that Fort Worth has some attributes that make it especially attractive. However, we’d like to take this chance to introduce you to Haslet, Texas – a community just about 20 miles down the road from Fort Worth.

If you’re looking at relocating to the DFW area, here are a few reasons why you should strongly consider Haslet, and our amazing Caraway community, as your new home.

Small Town Comfort Without Losing Big Cities Amenities

We’ve found that the size of a community matters for those looking to relocate into the area. Fort Worth has a lot to offer, but it also has a massive population. Fort Worth is currently on an upward projectile for population growth, and according to reports from 2017, the current population is less than 150,000 people away from hitting the 1 million mark.

While Fort Worth is filled with old Texas charm and friendliness, the size alone is enough to turn off some prospective homebuyers from the area. However, just down the road in Haslet is another world entirely.

Haslet is a quiet suburb with a population that hasn’t quite reached the 2,000 mark. This is a stark contrast to the big city, but trust that the crowds are the only thing you’re giving up when you choose Haslet instead of Fort Worth as the place you call home.  In Haslet, it’s possible to get to know practically every member of your community and it’s a place where neighbors know and interact with each other. Our Caraway community is the place to make lifelong friends.

Top Notch Schools

Students that live in Haslet will have the privilege of attending school within the Northwest Independent School District. According to Niche, the school district receives an overall A rating, with academics, college prep and extracurricular activities being the areas that they really shine.

A 16 to 1 student to teacher ratio means that students will have the opportunity to learn and interact with educators who have the time to devote to each student’s individual needs. We have a feeling that this could be why the district’s proficiency rating as a whole is so high.

The Northwest Independent School District is one of the largest in Texas, covering 234 square miles to include the counties of Denton, Wise and Tarrant. Currently, the district is home to 18 elementary level schools and six middle schools. For high school level students, the district offers 3 traditional school facilities and one additional facility that is designed for accelerated students.

Summer Fun

While kids might not be able to wait until that last day of the school year, we all know that it doesn’t take very long before boredom sets in. Thankfully, finding enough boredom busting activities to keep little ones busy isn’t a problem in Haslet.

Take for example, the multiple summer camp options which far exceed what a typical town of 2,000 residents offers its young people. In Haslet, children can enjoy a full day of fun at the Sendera Ranch Summer Camp that’s designed to keep young explorers and innovators busy from sunrise to nearly sundown. Additionally, for residents that make the short commute to Fort Worth for work, there are plenty of options in the area to drop off children for a little learning and play while you go about your workday without the added stress of juggling child care.

Haslet is also home of a great parks system. The two main parks, John Gammill Park and the Haslet Community Park offer plenty of space to let little ones run free and enough amenities to make it worth the trip for adults too.

Exceptional Economy

Stability and security are important when choosing a community to move to. While many might prefer a small town environment, quite a few give up that dream in exchange for the security of employment and steady economy that larger cities can supply.

Trust that this isn’t a concern in Haslet. The super close proximity to Fort Worth means that there is plenty of employment and growth opportunities. With job growth being high and an unemployment level that falls well below that national average, Haslet provides the type of economic security that will leave you feeling comfortable. .

Plus, with vibrant, growing economies comes the amenities to match. The area is absolutely flourishing, with new businesses and opportunities for adventures in learning and exploring. Haslet is the town that can put you directly in touch with everything your growing family needs to thrive and build a life around.
