If you’re thinking about buying a home in DFW, doing so sooner rather than later might be in your best interest. According to recent numbers from the latest Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller Home Price Index, Dallas area home prices were up an incredible 9.6% in December from only a year earlier.

For perspective, the nearly 10 percent jump is almost twice the nationwide gain of 5.4% and is among the five largest increases in the entire country, with only Portland, San Francisco, Denver, and Seattle seeing higher gains.

In most cases, home prices across the U.S. are back to where they were around 2007, prior to the worst housing crash we’ve ever seen. In fact, according to Case-Shiller, DFW area home prices are actually at an all-time high and nearly 24%

With so much happening going on around downtown Dallas and many of its surrounding suburbs, we thought now might be a good time to check in on what’s being developed in nearby Fort Worth.

DFW Apartment Market

With apartment development absolutely booming all over the country the past couple years, it looks like skyrocketing rents could finally be slowing down, at least according to one national real estate website. Although Zillow Chief Economist Svenja Gudel believes rental rates will continue to rise in 2016, the rate at which we’ll see rates climb should be at a much slower pace.

According to research done by the national real estate portal, the median rent at the end of 2015 nationally was $1,381 and is expected to jump to $1,396 before the end of this year, which would only be about a 1.1 percent hike.

As part of an agreement developers have made with the city, all of the 209 apartments at the new Bishop Arts Station complex will be mixed-income, while 20
