Are you kidding about Murphy? I know 4 Murphy families that either recently moved to another home in Murphy or are building now. And DH and I actually drove the neighborhood this morning (one of the worst last year for foreclosures) and the number of owner occupied homes is higher than we've ever seen it.

Plano is a good city, but Murphy hardly has an exodus of people leaving for Plano.

I think you mis-read it...she said "A lot of people seem to also be moving out TO Murphy for better house prices", not out of.

Yes, thanks for clarifying. This was a plug for Murphy, not against it. Murphy seems to be attracting a lot of people and has a lot of retail development going on right now. Might be worth check into for OP who needs better housing price than they can find in Plano.

We live in McKinney. If you're looking for good schools and an area NOT declining, I'd recommend Frisco, Allen or Plano.

What is it with the anti McKinney stuff going on in this forum? I find McKinney as nice as the other four mentioned and not as sterile.

I guess some don't like the older part of town, I think that makes it less cookie cutterish when compared to the other three. Declining? Hardly.

I highly recommend McKinney. It's got great school's, is a booming area and not as sterile as some of the others, but is still a huge development of homes and business. We picked McKinney over W. Plano, Frisco, and Allen and don't regret it one bit.

well i live in west plano and we have top schools over here. Mckinney I would recemmond for the better housing prices since they have much more of a newer housing complexes. Allen, you should go there for the outlets and shopping areas. And if you're a sports fan, then you should move to Frisco (football, minor league baseball, hockey). But otherwises any 4 of them aren't too bad.
