McKinney real estate comprises the county seat of Collin County, Texas. McKinney was ranked 1st in CNN’s Money Magazine for “Best Places to Live” in the United States in its 2014 September issue. It is one of several communities experiencing great growth on the northeastern edge of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. With companies like Raytheon calling McKinney home, and so many other company headquarters in the surrounding areas, the reason for the city’s amazing growth is obvious.
McKinney’s elementary schools have been included in a list of “Best Public Schools in Texas,” and McKinney North High School was ranked #4 in the state, and #3 in the area, for its football program. Children who call McKinney home are served primarily by the McKinney Independent School District, but some of the western and southern areas are zoned to nearby school districts which also provide a high quality education to their students. Families love the laid back community and unique recreational opportunities you can only find in McKinney, like the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary and Chestnut Square Historic Village. With so many wonderful opportunities for residents, it’s easy to see why McKinney is one of the fastest growing cities in Texas.
