We can't get away from large retailers, it's just a fact of life. Pick a neighborhood you'd like to live and then look for your home.

Hi Allison -
I just sold a Rowlett home last month that spent only 2 weeks on the market. The housing market in the majority of the Dallas metroplex has been improving quite nicely this year, including Rowlett. You need a great agent that knows how to really showcase your home, and get it marketed correctly right from the start. Online MLS presence is CRITICAL, considering approximately 90% of buyers are now shopping for homes on the web. However, there are still a number of additional marketing avenues that can be taken, aside from simply placing your home in the MLS and doing an open house or two. It just takes the right, MOTIVATED and diligent agent, to take on the job and do the extra legwork, as well as representing your needs throughout and negotiating the best value on your home, and it will save you lots of headaches and valuable time in the long run. I'd love the opportunity to meet with you and share my detailed marketing presentation with no obligation, as well as review my various listing plans/fees available. Please feel free to contact me at your convenience, thanks!

Terri has the most accurate results. We also live here in Rowlett and serve the surrounding area. Of course we like Rowlett and wouldn't trade places. Lake Ray Hubbard offers a lot of view and activity for us residents. The hills are higher on the Rockwall side, so the eastern side of the east most finger of the lake boasts a lot of homes.
Rowlett High School is quite nice as well as the other schools in town.
Sales have been fairly constant the last few years. Last summer there was an uptick, but Bernanke crushed that. This year we seem to have more than normal foreclosures, but it is not reflected much in pricing.
