For those looking for a wide choice of living accommodations, friendly neighbors, abundant activities, a low crime rate and one of the best school systems in Texas, Midlothian is the place to live.
Midlothian offers a variety of housing options to meet the needs of any budget. The pleasant blend of old and new homes is available in a diverse cross-section of housing – from apartments, townhouses and duplexes to single-family homes, gated communities and residential estates.
From the affordable to the incredible, homes range in price from $60,000 to over $2 million. New home selling prices start around $90,000, and luxury homes on one-acre lots start around $190,000. Average home resale price in the Midlothian area is $160,000.
Midlothian, with its country atmosphere, is an escape from the bustle of a big city, yet is close enough for an easy commute to the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, which is why people are rapidly moving to the area. Although the community is growing quickly, it is still able to offer a variety of styles and settings at a lower cost than the larger cities.
Since 2000, the city of Midlothian has built over 3,000 new residential units, including single-family homes, duplexes, townhouses and apartments. Midlothian has approved plans for a number of new subdivisions since 2000, creating over 2,500 new lots.
Additional subdivisions with another 3,000 lots are also in the planning stages. These figures are only for the numerous new subdivisions that are located in the Midlothian city limits.
There are many more subdivisions that are located just outside of the city limits, but they are still a part of the Midlothian Independent School District. These subdivisions consist of custom homes on one or more acres. These developments all have various amenities that make each one of them unique. Some have private lakes while others have equestrian facilities. Eagles Nest is a private airport community with its own airstrip and every home has a private hanger. Shiloh Forest surrounds two small lakes where the residents can enjoy native pecan trees and wildlife on private walking trails. Steeplechase is an equestrian development that surrounds Massey Lake.
Whether you are looking for the loft in downtown or the ranch in the country, real estate professionals are readily available to help with your residential or corporate relocation.
