My husband will be working in Richardson and I noticed that Wylie would be about 12-13 miles from his office and MapQuest says 18 minutes. Is this realistic or is the traffic pretty bad going out that way? Also--does anyone have info about the schools and atmosphere in Wylie? Pros and cons?

I know several people living in Wylie. It still has a country feel to it. Houses are affordable although I don't think they appreciate a lot. One friend bought a new house in 2001 and it appraised lower for several years and today is only appraised $3,000 higher than when they bought new in 2001.

Everyone I know, though, is happy with living in Wylie. Several commute into Dallas for work down 78. They like the schools. Their kids are in youth activities.

Wylie is great... but consider Murphy and Sachse (in Collin Co) as well. I live in Sachse and work in Richardson and it takes me 10 minutes to get in, and I have my choice of at least 5 different routes to get to work without taking a highway.

Default Moving to DFW - looking for horse property

Anyone know about the horse property and riding in Wylie?

We're moving to the DFW area and flying out there to house hunt on the 28th. Wylie has nice horse properties online but we don't know anything about the area... does it have trails to ride on without trailering out?

And anything else you can share would be greatly appreciated.

We looked at a beautiful neighborhood in Prosper that had trails around the neighborhood and was about 1/2 mile away from an equestrian center that had stables, and a trail leading to it.

I'm not sure what's available in Wylie, but in Sachse there's Capricorn that has stables and lessons. They might be able to point you in the right direction. Capricorn Equestrian Center, Sachse Texas
