Choosing A Neighborhood
Dallas is a large and diverse city, with neighboring cities and neighborhoods to fit every need. Dallas has various schools, parks, community centers, and amenities homeowners are searching for. When choosing a neighborhood before or after relocating to DFW, consider the following…
What type of home are you looking for? You may want a single-family home, or you may be more interested in a condo or apartment. Your home choice will help you find the right neighborhood.
How will you get to work and how long are you willing to commute? If you’re planning to walk or bike to work, you’ll need to choose a neighborhood near your workplace.
Are you interested in either a historic neighborhood, or a new, trendy neighborhood? Keep in mind that a home in a historic neighborhood may require a lot of work, while the newer neighborhoods may be farther from the heart of the city. Do you want a pedestrian neighborhood? You may want to walk to stores, the library, restaurants and bars.
What do you want in a neighborhood and what don’t you want? Think about your current neighborhood’s pluses and minuses in planning your move.
Becoming a Dallas Resident
When you move to Dallas, there are a few things you’ll have to take care of that may seem daunting if you don’t know how to do them.
If you need assistance setting-up your utilities, feel free to use any of these resources:
If you are moving to Dallas from out of state, you’ll need a new driver’s license. You need to apply in person for your driver’s license and bring proof of residency, proof of age, proof of liability insurance, and proof of Social Security Number.
You’ll also need to register your vehicle in Texas if you’re new to the state. You can do this at the same location where you get your North Carolina driver’s license. For additional information on getting a Texas driver’s license, visit: https://www.dps.texas.gov/driverlicense/applyforlicense.htm
