Now that we’ve reached well over the halfway point of 2016, it’s safe to say the Dallas area has experienced a red hot real estate market for just about the entire year so far. Apartments are being built and rented faster than ever and inventory for just about every other property-type simply can’t keep up with demand. As a result, home prices in DFW have also reached record highs

But with the local real estate market so robust over the last 6-8 months, new reports are surfacing about the market possibly overheating sometime in the not-so-distant future. National real estate database realtor.com recently released a list of the nation’s 10 “overheating” real estate markets recently, which was compiled from analysis of the country’s 50 largest

Dallas-Fort Worth Apartments

So just how insane is the apartment market in DFW right now? Well, according to a recent article in the Dallas Business Journal, over 50,000 new units are currently underway in our region, which is not only an all-time high, but easily the most units under construction of any major market in the U.S. by far.

With so many apartment units under construction in DFW, economists and real estate professionals alike are wondering whether demand really is that high or if North Texas could see over saturation sometime in the near future. As of now, however, it’s hard to argue that demand really is keeping pace with the incredible new supply of apartment residences continuing to hit the market, which will no doubt continue through the rest of the year.

Sell Your DFW Home

An interesting article from Market Watch helped put in perspective just how red hot the DFW real estate market is right now. As mentioned in the piece, out of 2,506 recently listed properties to hit the market in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metro area, 2,305 of those listings were sold in a 7-day span. To put those numbers in a way that sounds even more jaw dropping, roughly 92% of DFW homes to hit the open market are being sold in a week or less.

The uncommon trend of homes that are priced somewhere under $2 million being sold almost immediately is just the latest sign of how much housing is in demand all throughout North Texas, and especially around many parts of Dallas. Recently gathered statistics are showing that 1,200 people are moving to Texas every

The Vendome Dallas

It’s been well over a decade since The Vendome Dallas was built, but even as more condo and apartment high-rises continued to hit the market over the years, it’s still widely considered to be one of the most luxurious places to call home in all of downtown Dallas, even today.

Located at 3505 Turtle Creek Boulevard, The Vendome’s distinct European flair is unlike anything else in the city, both from a lifestyle and architectural standpoint. It’s French-inspired design can only be described as elegant and sophisticated, while on the inside, residents almost feel as if they’re living in a lavish resort hotel somewhere in South France.

Living spaces are large inside The Vendome and offer anywhere from one to three bedroom floor plans in most cases. High

New construction inventory in the DFW suburbs could get a substantial boost in the near future as reports are surfacing about a major mixed-use development possibly coming to a 729-acre site in Frisco.

A joint venture between California-based American Newland Communities LP and Japan-based North America Sekisui House LLC, the project could brings as many as 3,200 single-family homes and apartments by the time it’s finished, not to mention additional retail and office space as well.

As reported by the Dallas Business Journal, initial plans reveal developers wanting to build out 1,800 single-family homes and up to 1,400 apartment residences, however it’s still unclear how much retail and office space would be included in the project.

Dallas Transit Oriented Development

If you haven’t heard the phrase “transit-oriented development” yet, it won’t be long before you become all too familiar with what seems to be one of the fastest growing real estate trends to hit major cities all over the United States. Here in the DFW area, nearly all of Dallas’ 60 existing light rail and commuter rail stations are driving all kinds of mixed-use development, especially at stops like Mockingbird Station, CityPlace/West Village, South Side on Lamar, and the Shops at Park Lane.

From a consumer standpoint, the primary appeal behind living in a transit-oriented development is of course the close proximity to public transportation, while from a city standpoint, TODs also help add sustainability density to accommodate for continued growth, help

Texas is leading the country in having the fewest homes underwater, which is yet another sign of how strong the housing market and demand for homes in many parts of the Lone Star State really is right now.

According to CoreLogic, a leading financial and real estate analytics company based in California, less than 2% of home owners in Texas owe more than their house is worth right now, which is especially the case here in the red hot DFW region. Based on findings in the report, about 8% of homeowners nationwide still owe more than the current value of their home, which is significantly higher than the estimated 1.8% of homeowners specifically living in the Dallas area.

For some rather jaw-dropping perspective, CoreLogic did a similar study back in 2009
