As one of the the city’s more rapidly developing communities, Bryan Heights only adds to the growing list of high-density projects already in the works for the neighborhood, which currently includes nearly 2,000 new apartment residences as well.

DFW Apartment Construction

If you think the current apartment boom throughout the DFW region has reached insane heights, here are a few numbers to support that claim: nearly 30,000 more apartments in North Texas will be delivered in 2017, and 50,000 units in all are currently under construction. 

For most of us who at least try to keep current on all the new development happening around our market, the data is hardly surprising, however, even despite being at a historically high rate for any market across the U.S. 

Regardless of what community or neighborhood you’re in, you’ll almost certainly find some sort of new apartment development in the works, which is crazy to think about. 

According to a recently released study from RealPage, Frisco and central Dallas are

DFW Development

New data revealed North Texas home builders started the most homes homes in a single quarter since all the way back in 2007, which is great news considering low supply continues to drive home prices up all over DFW. 

Representing the highest level of new home starts since the fourth quarter of 2007, area home builders have also started more than 30,500 homes throughout the region over the last 12 months ending in March, which is now labeled as the highest level of new construction activity since the Great Recession. 

Compared to the first quarter of last year, home starts jumped 16% and builders have also sold more new construction homes during the first quarter of this year, registering 7,519 new home sales so far—a rate that’s also up 15% from

DFW Home Price Increases in March

Thanks to a continued growth in job growth and population gains, DFW home prices continued to rise again in March, which is becoming an all-too-familiar trend for the local housing market.  

According to recently updated data from Zillow, DFW was among the the three cities that saw the largest increases in home prices last month, following Seattle, which saw an 11.6% spike, and Tampa, which saw an 11.4% price hike. 

Home prices in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area increase by 11% back in March. 

The substantial increase in median home prices in all three cities was nearly double the national average, which was recorded at 6.8%, which is a pretty high number as it is. 

While rent prices around DFW are also at historic highs, the good news

DFW Rentals

As more jobs and more Fortune 500 companies move to Dallas, bundles of young professionals are also making their way to North Texas, which is one of many reasons why the DFW apartment market continues to remain red hot in 2017. 

Back in 2015, Forbes listed Dallas as the 15th Best Place for Business and Careers, and this past December NerdWallet also named Irving, Texas—a thriving suburb of Dallas—one of the best cities in the entire country for job seekers in 2017. 

But now that the Dallas and surrounding North Texas area has been established as a destination spot, just what exactly is the cost of living here? Well, according to recent analysis from Zumper, the median rent price for a studio apartment in Dallas was $1,155 per month back in

One Uptown Dallas Apartments For Rent

One Uptown has gotten a lot of press since it was first announced, and for good reason. Described by some as a “skyline changer,” few high-rises in the DFW area are as high-profile as the 20-story, $85 million building known simply as One Uptown.  

While construction for the new luxury tower took close to two year, first move-ins are finally underway according to recent reports, which couldn’t come at a better time. DFW’s rental market has been scorching hot for a better part of a year now, and as job growth increases and more people are moving to the area, supply continues to dwindle.  

As of early February, over 20% of One Uptown’s 198 luxury apartments have already been leased, and that number has likely gone up significantly as the busy

If you had to pick one neighborhood in Dallas that’s undergoing more changes than any other location in town, it might be hard to pick against the Bishop Arts district. While Uptown Dallas has certainly seen it’s fair share of development in recent years, it’s a community that has already been well-established to this point in terms livability, walkability, and desirability.
