Quick question for everyone on what "the norm" is for DFW.
Apparently my Dad has been googling things (never a good sign....) and is convinced that DH & I need to live in a gated community in DFW. He said that this is very common and most neighborhoods are gated.
Is this true?!!? I've never heard of gated communities for regular-old neighborhoods. There are a few of them in the very, very wealthy parts of town here in LA - but still pretty rare.
We've been looking online at homes in Uptown, Lakewood area and most of them don't look like gated. Not sure if I need to change our search requirements.
Love that my Dad is still worried about me at 32, but now he's got me nervous that I'm looking in unsafe areas!!
Thanks in advance for your advice
