Sachse Real Estate Information

One of the smaller suburbs of Dallas, the city of Sachse, Texas, lies northeast of the city, spread on almost 10 square miles between Collin and Dallas counties. An estimate taken at the beginning of 2009 put the city's population at just under 19,000. The community is full of residents with above-average incomes, with the median household annual income at more than $70,000. Real estate values reflect the makeup of the city, with most properties in the above-average price range.

The community was founded in 1845 by William Sachse, a Prussian immigrant. The community is just one mile north of Texas State Highway 190 and the Firewheel Town Center. The Firewheel Outdoor Mall in Garland is just three miles away. It lies within easily reachable distance of Dallas at just about 20 miles northeast of the city on Highway 78. Along the stretch of that highway is where most of the city's recent residential, commercial and retail developments have taken place.

Children and teenagers of the residents of Sachse who lie in the Dallas County portion of the city are assigned to two elementary schools, one middle school and one high school in the Garland Independent School District. Those who dwell in the Collin County portion of the city are likewise zoned to schools in the Wylie Independent School District.

Attractions in the town include the 18-hole Woodbridge Golf Course, the home to the Northern Texas Chapter of the PGA of America, the Muddy Creek Preserve and seven parks, including the 36-acre Heritage Park. The Sachse Public Library provides media, literature, history and events for residents of the town. There are a dozen churches for the religious to choose from, and the city holds two annual major events: Sachse Fallfest, an arts and crafts country fair that draws more than 10,000 visitors, and the Red, White & Blue Blast Fourth of July celebration.
