Beautiful landscape brings families to Duncanville
"Trees not traffic," is a slogan that local real estate offices continue to use when talking to prospective homebuyers and CNNMoney.com agrees.
CNNMoney.com says that Duncanville is the #1 city in the country for affordable housing.
"The 'City of Champions' is located a few minutes from downtown Dallas and a quick 20 minute drive from Fort Worth making Duncanville a popular place for commuters looking for easy access to major highways in northern Texas.
With a warm climate, the town is also becoming a popular spot for retirees. A handful of golf courses and a nearby lake with boating and fishing facilities provide an outlet from the heat. The city spends thousands of hours each year maintaining its landscape and parks, and a full time horticulturist is responsible for maintaining flower beds, walkways and fountains. The recreation department plants almost 50,000 annual bulbs each year, adding color to the city. While the main street is showing its age, the town is working to refurbish it."
Duncanville offers a beautiful landscape that matches any budget and lifestyle. It is a pleasant blend of old and new, offering a diverse cross-section of housing, from condominiums to single family homes to residential estate.
Shade-lined streets, wooded lots and rolling hills make all areas of Duncanville desirable. From the affordable to the incredible homes range in price from $70,000 to $500,000.
