Located just north of Dallas and south of Plano as Central Expressway cuts through the North Dallas area, Richardson real estate lies within 27.4 square miles in both Dallas and Collin Counties.  Richardson began growing rapidly in the 1970’s, and most Richardson real estate was built during these years of explosive growth.  The city has also experienced new growth in recent years, creating a demand for Richardson homes for sale.

Richardson is commonly referred to as DFW’s telecom corridor, home to the corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities of Texas Instruments, MCI, Northern Telecom, Fujitsu, and more than 500 high-tech terms.  The city sees an influx of nearly 80,000 employees on a typical work day.

Commuters to Dallas make up most of Richardson’s population, and buyers of Richardson Texas real estate with families appreciate the stability of neighborhoods, safety, and access to local government.  Families also value Richardson ISD, one of the best school districts in DFW and in the top 25 in the United States.  Higher education is available locally at the University of Texas at Dallas, a campus for science, engineering, management, and social science.

Area golf courses and 27 public parks provide weekend enjoyment, and nearby malls are just a short drive away.  Four DART light rail stations and easy access to highways make Richardson real estate even more appealing to commuters.
