We are relocating...

Originally the office was Irving so had narrowed our area to live down to Southlake&Colleyville

The office is now Spring Valley so we are considering Richardson. Would love some advice on areas based on the following...

2 children age 5 & 21/2 so elementary schools are important.
Budget 500-550k
SAHM community!
Parks
Preschool for the little one.
Short commute!

Any ideas, advice and opinions would be much appreciated!

Canyon Creek Country, Hills of Breckinridge, Creekdale North, Reserve are good contenders. You can also look in Plano and Dallas(RISD/PISD) to compare what's out there in your price range.

Most mothers work, so you'll be hard-pressed to find a neighborhood with a lot of stay at home moms. They're out there, but they're the minority.

Look in zips 75248 and 75080.

Frisco, West Plano, HP and SL seem to have more SAHMs. Everybody can't afford this luxury.

NE Richardson off Renner, north of Bush. 75082. Newer. Master planned. Lots of SAHMs. Lots of trees and creeks. I used to live over there before moving to Austin (grew up in both 75080 and 75081, so you really can't go wrong with Richardson as a whole).

That is where I live. It's practically Plano. If you want old Richardson charm than go to 75080 or to 75093 West Plano for elitist suburb vibe. It's nice here in NE Richardson but no reason to drop 1/2 a million here.

Spring Creek! I can't afford it, but a 500k+ budget will get you in. The elementary school is stellar; my son ended up there after a snafu at our zoned school. Very heavy parent involvement and always people outside with kids. Still trying to figure out what younger people do to make so much money lol.

I agree. This is also a much more practical suggestion than NE Richardson, which could be a pretty sucky commute to Spring Valley and, depending on where in NE Richardson you are, it could get markedly worse once that new corporate campus is finished in 2014-15.
