Located 20 miles northeast of downtown Dallas, Sachse is a small, but growing town. With a population of about 22,000 people, Sachse is a small suburb, but it has increased in population by well over 120% in the last ten years. Although Sachse has experienced large growth, it is a part of the National Environmental Hall of Fame and received the Texas Recreation and Park Society Excellence in Programming award for its annual Pumpkin Prowl event.
Sachse is family oriented, with about 70% of the adult population married or with a family. Family-oriented and with a higher than average median income, the mayor of Sachse explains why even financially this is an excellent choice to call home – “Living in Sachse makes good economic sense as well. A comparatively low tax rate combined with above average sales tax revenues makes living in Sachse a sound investment in anyone’s book.”
The average temperature in Sachse is 66.2 degrees and the average rainfall is 32.45 inches. During the fall, Sachse puts on its annual Sachse Fallfest – an arts and crafts country fair that draws about 10,000 people. If you like the rural, small-town feel, Sachse is a great place to live. Capricorn Equestrian, located directly within Sachse, offers year-round horseback riding programs. If, however, you like convenience and activities of bigger cities, Sachse can be still be home. It is closely located to Plano, Garland, and of course, Dallas.
The median household income in Sachse is nearly $35,000 greater than the Texas median and yet the cost of living is very close the national average. Whether married with a family or single, rural or urban, Sachse is a great choice!
