DFW Affordable Housing

Outside of continued job and economic growth, one of the primary reasons why the DFW real estate market has remained hot over the past couple years no doubt relates to affordability. But after years of constant gains in home values and home prices, North Texas has officially fallen out of realtor.com's “metros to watch” list in 2017.  

Believe it or not, home prices around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro Area have spiked by a jaw dropping 43.3% in the past five years alone, and prices are still going up. Although the jump in home prices has been a welcoming trend for home sellers in DFW, the buyers’ market has become especially competitive, especially within the last 12 months.

The exact price increase from September 2015 to September of this year was recorded at 8%, while home prices nationwide are only seeing a 5.5% from this time last year. 

Believe it or not, the most recent pricing numbers now have Dallas-area home prices up by over 30% from the pre-recession

For suburban home buyers specifically looking in the Forney or Kaufman County area, the new homes are certainly a welcoming addition to the community, especially given the starting price point is only around the mid-$200,000s. 

Gateway Parks will be a 2,000-acred mixed use development that’s located just south of U.S. Highway 80 and part of the $1 billion Gateway development that’s completely redefining this once-sleepy DFW suburb.
