It is a great time to buy a house, but with all of the homes for sale here in Denton, Texas, which part of town, which neighborhood is the best fit for you and your family? With this article, my hope is to give you some highlights of the different areas of town to help you make your decision.
I went back and forth as to how to put this blog together and figured the best way was to just give you the bare bones of each neighborhood. I'll be writing further blogs with much more specific information about each area and I'll link them back to this blog once I've written them for your further research. If you'd like more information before I get the next few blogs done, please contact me and I'll be happy to help you.

Established neighborhoods: These are neighborhoods here in Denton, Texas with older homes for sale. The area has established trees and a well-known name around town to go with them.

The lots average 1/3 acre and have tons of mature trees. This is a very friendly neighborhood conveniently located near I-35. Homes in this neighborhood range from the $160's to the $330's.

Montecito - Montecito is located on the other side of South Lakes Park from Southridge. This neighborhood was established in the early 1970's with big houses usually set on an acre or more. Of course, there have been newer additions with smaller lots, but this neighborhood remains one of the most beautiful in Denton with its numerous trees and grand houses. Homes in Montecito average in the high $390's plus.
Downtown Historic District - These are homes that line Hickory and Oak from Carroll to Welch. Most of them were built in the early 1900's and have been beautifully restored and proudly bare their historical markers. These are all HUGE houses that offer the charm of the Victorian age with the conveniences and amenities of today. They are priced around $500,000 in restored condition.

I have heard many people refer to it as an "Italian Oasis." Homes in this wonderful neighborhood range from the 490's to the 630's.
Near the University of North Texas: Denton is well known for its two universities, the University of North Texas and Texas Woman's University.

Tremont - Tremont is a very small, custom community located across the highway from the university off of North Texas Boulevard. It features large homes on smaller lots in the $220's plus.
Highland Park Circle - This is a small, quiet, mostly forgotten road near Tremont that offers some absolutely charming houses. You can almost see the university from here, but for some reason, people over look its splendor. Homes here are averaging $160s to $180's.
