The DART train station is the most notable addition in the last couple of months. DART extended the Blue Line out to Rowlett to the old Park n Ride. Now, you can get to downtown Dallas or points in between easily and without having to find parking.
Blue Line also continues on down to Lancaster Road near the VA Hospital. You can also connect to the other parts of the train system, which is the largest in America, including the TRE, DFW airport and The T in Fort Worth.
The Bush Turnpike was completed through Rowlett from the Firewheel area down to I-30. This does improve connectivity and getting to Plano and the far far north is now pretty fast and easy, albeit pricey.
Wylie is just north and east from Rowlett, which makes Bush attractive but the DART would be less convenient. Sachse also is north from Rowlett and enjoys the same school system as Rowlett.
The schools here and in Sachse are quite good. Life is good in the suburbs, with shopping and things to do. Rockwall's Harbor is just over the bridge from Rowlett and we like it a lot.
I have many families happy as resident in the surrounding area(s) but it fit their lifestyle.

As the listing agent for Andersonville, which is the property you inquired from, that property has gone into a restructure with the current owner and is no longer available to purchase.
Regarding your question of the Rowlett area, in addition to the information provided by the other agents, it has become a much more accessible location with 190/ George Bush Freeway now complete over to I30. The property values are similar to the Wylie area or may be slightly lower. Please let me know if you need assistance in locating a home. I look forward to the opportunity to assist you in locating a home to meet the needs of you and your family.
This home is also located in Wylie, TX...but your question ask about Rowlett. Are you interested in moving to Wylie or Rowlett? Both of these towns are a bit smaller than Plano and have more of a "home town" feeling. Home prices will be slightly lower than Plano - and the homes will generally be newer too as the growth in Wylie/Rowlett has been in more recent years.
If you are not already working with a Realtor, please feel free to give me a call/text/email. I would be happy to assist you as you start the process of finding your next home.
