My family and I moved here from South Florida a little over a year ago. After years of struggling with city living , over priced housing  and a poor overall quality of living, it was time to find a new place to call home. A place where people are friendly, housing is extremely affordable, public schools are among the best in the state and the housing/job market is stable with a strong forecast for the future. In addition to all these incredible qualities  it was also extremely important to find a place we felt would be a sound financial investment, for us  Rockwall is that place, we love it and it is our new home!!!

With so many parts of the Country struggling with declining home values. We are fortunate Texas is one of the few bucking the trend. Now really is a good time and the coming months represent an excellent window of opportunity for both buyers and sellers. Here are just some of the facts about Dallas and Rockwall County as reported by reputable national news sources

* Forbes.com named Rockwall the 6th fastest growing County in the USA, Again!

Phillip - Glad you found Texas and the Dallas area.  I've lived in Dallas my whole live, currently in Plano, but it is a great place to live and raise a family.  And you should list Rockwall as the home to American Idol Finalist, Jason Castro!
