Some of the ways Wylie is different from and similar to other DFW cities and towns are shown on these best Dallas suburbs and about Dallas suburbs pages.

Wylie is located in south central Collin County, approximately 26 miles northeast of downtown Dallas and 57 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Wylie's proximity to both the Las Colinas and north Dallas business centers and downtown Dallas is likely to make Wylie residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.

Local schools

Most students living in Wylie are eligible to attend Wylie ISD schools ... the attendance boundaries of Lovejoy ISD, Plano ISD, Garland ISD and Rockwall ISD also extend into Wylie

More information about how student performance at the schools attended by Wylie students compares with other DFW area schools is available on these best DFW school districts, best DFW high schools, best DFW middle schools and best DFW elementary schools pages.


Single-family homes

Single-family homes (identified as one-unit, detached houses by the U.S. Census Bureau) account for 82.2 percent of the Wylie residences ... median value of owner-occupied single-family homes is $173,500 ... about 78 percent of Wylie housing units have been built during the past 25 or so years ... approximately six percent of these residences are more than 50 years old ... about three percent of Wylie housing units have been constructed since 2014


New home construction

There currently is limited new home construction occurring in Wylie. Click on this new construction homes link to see all new Wylie homes that are currently listed for sale. If you thinking about buying a new construction home, you may want to carefully consider the guidance about builder quality provided on this DFW best home builders page.

I frequently am asked by folks who have never bought a new construction home if they should be assisted by a buyer’s agent when selecting a builder and when negotiating their new home purchase. Most of the time my answers are "Yes" and "Yes."


Community amenities/activities

One of the outstanding things about living in Wylie is its exceptional community amenities.


Commutes

Approximately 24 miles and 28 minutes drive time without traffic from central Wylie to north Dallas business center ... 25 miles and 33 minutes to Legacy business center ... 28 miles and 34 minutes to downtown Dallas
