Consistently one of the most active housing markets in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex for both newly constructed and pre-owned homes, Carrollton offers a convenient location and a wide variety of housing, prices, and styles. Popular developing areas include Mustang Park, Villas of Wellington, and Raiford Crossing.

Significant components of the Carrollton community are the neighborhoods and the various organizations
that represent them. Carrollton has many strong and active neighborhood organizations such as Home
Owners Associations, the Community Association Institute, Neighborhood Crime Watch groups, and
the Neighborhood Advisory Commission.

These organizations, along with their partnerships with schools, businesses, religious institutions, community organizations, and the City, help make Carrollton the stable, vibrant network of citizens that it is today. The City encourages communication, partnership and understanding among these groups.

Leading the way in the digital era, the City of Carrollton recently implemented the use of the neighborhood-specific social network Nextdoor.com. The neighbor-to-neighbor communication tool
fosters opportunities for advice, education, notices, and networking to further assist residents in communication within their respective areas of town.
