Earlier this month, the Texas Association of Realtors released sales numbers for condos and townhouses in Dallas up through the month of May, which revealed just how hot attached living spaces are in the area right now.

In case you haven’t heard, New Orleans-based HRI Properties purchased the 9-story Mayflower Building located at 411 N.

Although it won’t be immediate, some much-needed inventory will soon be added to the North Texas housing landscape. According to reports, Hillwood Communities is finally breaking ground for its newest mega-development, Lilyana, which will eventually bring 1,250 new single-family homes to the town of Celina

It still seems that with each passing month, the Dallas-area is still hitting all-time highs when it comes to housing figures, and it appears the month of June was no different.  

According to a  new report from CoreLogic, Dallas has the second biggest increase in home prices last month, jumping by about 9.4% compared to home prices in June of 2015. For comparison-sake, the nationwide rate "only" rose by 5.7% from June of 2015 to June of 2016, which shows just how strong the Dallas real estate market is right now.
