Are you looking for an area that's close to the Working Corridors of Dallas, Frisco, Allen, or Plano but still offers new builds at affordable prices?  Wylie is, hands down "that" place!  DFW is growing at a crazy rate, it's the 3rd fasted growing metroplex in the Country and has been growing by over 100,000 people a year for the last 2 years.  These numbers are only expected to increase as Toyota, State Farm Insurance and other companies move their headquarters to the DFW Metro-Plex in the next couple of years.  Many suburbs , like Frisco & McKinney, have already experienced so much growth that modest houses are selling for a crippling premium. Wylie on the other hand is prime ... offering great homes at affordable, not blown up prices.  Wylie is  the hidden gem of the DFW Metro-Plex. ...

Home loan approval is an ongoing affair! After starting the home mortgage loan process "the approval" is better described as an ongoing affair! This is not a one-time event!! Your approval is a series of evaluations and verifications of the information required for your loan.This information was given to one of my clients by loan officerAndrew McElyeaGuild Mortgage (NMLS No.3274) Loan Officer (NMLS No.283216) (469) 774-4727 cellAMcElyea@GuildMortgage.net I thought it would be great to share with everyone! You'll find below an outline of the steps involved in getting approved for a home loan AND estimated days for each step!!!  This was written by Andrew McElyea,  in his words, which I think is very helpful for home-buyers on how the loan approval process REALLY works :  LOAN ORIGINATION...

 Why visit Wylie Texas? The city between the lakes Downtown Wylie, TX has some great food and shopping! I didn't realize what a small town Wylie was until it grew! It had one stop sign and one grocery store for may years! I drove to Plano Texas for everything, movies, shopping, Walmart & restaurants. Our visitors had to stay in hotels in Rockwall or Plano.  Not anymore! Wylie has everything you need including a movie theater and a hotel!  Wylie has transitioned from a small town to one of the fastest growing cities in DFW Metroplex. Wylie has affordable newer homes making it a place families want to be. There are 2 Highschools, an awesome stadium and 20+ other school campuses. The newest campus is being built now and will be named "George Bush Elementary".  Everyone still says Wylie has...
