DFW Home Values

The housing market in the Dallas-Fort Worth area just hit a record high, topping $510 billion in 2018. Last year alone the area’s home market added another $14.6 billion in value, at least according to newly released Zillow estimates.

Over the past five years, housing values in the area have increased more than 40-percent. Despite a slowing of home appreciation in the second half of the year for North Texas, median single-family home sales prices still rose for much of the year.

Despite this, Dallas-Ft Worth housing market value is still relatively modest when compared to housing markets such as New York/Northern New Jersey, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego.

The real estate marketing and data firm also reports strong and stable home

Apartment Construction in DFWWe already know that the apartment market throughout North Texas has been robust over the past few years. But to put things in perspective, apartment builders in the DFW region added a whopping 26,000 rental units in 2018 alone—a total that led the nation in completions by a large margin according to apartment data firm RealPage. 

Despite the huge number of apartment deliveries over the past 12 months, most economists say demand is still quite strong for DFW rentals, which is why another 35,000 more apartment units were already under construction or getting ready to start construction at the end of 2018. Compared to last year’s new construction apartment pipeline, that’s 5,000 more units for those of you keeping track.

Just a few short months ago, PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Urban Land Institute released a report that summarized what kind of housing market we can expect in 2019, and not surprisingly, Dallas-Fort Worth was labeled the top real estate market to watch in 2019. 

Thanks to a relatively low-cost of living [for now] and strong population growth, DFW took home the top spot on the report, which considered 78 other cities in the U.S.

Right now, DFW’s business economy and housing market are strong, which is a trend that should continue throughout the new year. The cost of business remains low in North Texas, which is driving more businesses and companies to DFW, and ultimately more people. 

According to the report, DFW’s population growth in 2019 is
