Highland Village Real Estate Information

A residential and largely family-oriented community, Highland Village, Texas, lies on just over six square miles in Denton County. The community sits to the south side of Lewisville Lake's western branch, affording many residents close and easy access to the body of water. Highland Village is just one of the many communities in the north Texas region that has experienced a large pattern of growth in the last several years. The 2000 census gave the community a population of just over 12,000, but it has since then grown to nearly 16,000, as of estimates measured in 2006 by the Census Bureau.

Highland Village was incorporated in the early years of the 1960s, and it registered just over 500 residents during the 1970 census. The opening of the nearby Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, however, brought bouts of growth to the area, including Highland Village. There are several residential real estate communities located in the city, including Highland Shores, Castlewood and Highland Shores, possibly the largest, which sits on the south shores of Lewisville Lake and contains more than 1,600 residential properties.

Residents of Highland Village tend to have higher purchasing power than average, with a median household income exceeding $100,000 annually. Residents' children are served by the Lewisville Independent School District, which has three elementary schools and one middle school located in the city. Students in grade 9-12 attend Marcus High School, located in nearby Flower Mound.

The community hosts a number of annual events, including a hot-air balloon festival sponsored by the local Lions Club and Highland Village Days, an event held in June to celebrate the beginning of summer. The community is family-friendly, with around 55 percent of residents having children under the ages of 18 still in the home.
