This can often be a divisive issue for newcomers relocating to Dallas, especially for those who are unfamiliar with the area and the neighborhoods. One the one hand you don't want to rush into a home purchase that may turn out to be a bad decision, but on the other, neither do you want to have to move twice, especially if you have children entering the school system. So what do you do? Flip a coin?

Rasberry Crazy Ants can be very difficult to kill because there are so many of…
