A North Texas community has landed near the top of the list of the country's hottest suburban housing markets. The communities of Wylie and St. Paul northeast of Dallas were ranked as the second-hottest suburban home markets by Realtor.com. St. Paul is in Collin County, and Wylie touches Dallas, Collin and Rockwall counties. Realtor.com measured the number of online home searches and overall growth in suburbs around the country for its nationwide ranking. Only the Denver suburb of Montbello scored higher for housing activity than the Wylie/St. Paul market. "Our analysis indicates 50 percent of buyers planning to purchase a home this spring indicated they preferred a home in the suburbs." Realtor.com said that the Wylie/St. Paul market is attracting a mix of first-time homebuyers, young families and professionals.
