Downtown Dallas Apartment TowerA new high-rise development slated for downtown Dallas will include a number of affordable units according to recent reports—something many new projects throughout DFW have been lacking. 

Being developed by Matthews Southwest, the new apartment tower will soon break ground at 2400 Bryan Street, and when finished, will stand 15 stories high and have around 230 apartment residences. And of those 230 units, over 100 will be reserved for below-market rents. 

But just what does that means exactly? Well, according to affordable housing regulations, residents will need to be earning between 30 and 60 percent of the area’s median household income to qualify for the affordable units. 

Also included in the project scope is a parking garage and right around

DFW New Construction HomesThe Dallas-Fort Worth area was once again the top home building market in the U.S. last year, making it the third year in a row DFW saw the most home starts.

According to a new report from Metrostudy Inc., home builders began construction on roughly 34,750 homes in North Texas in 2018, edging out Houston’s total of 30,146 home starts and Central Florida’s 28,074 home starts.

Also noted in the report is that the median price for new homes throughout DFW actually dropped last year, indicating that buyers are opting for smaller, more affordable homes.  

New homes priced below $350,000 are what new construction buyers want most right now, especially as mortgage rates continue to increase. In 2018, new home starts in the DFW region were up by more than 4%,

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.

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.

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.
