There’s good news for Dallas-area homebuyers. Home prices in the region are up just slightly over a year ago, at least according to the recently released Case-Shiller report.

With a gain of just 2.7-percent, it makes for the lowest appreciation in home prices for Dallas in seven years. Looking nationwide, prices year-over-year are up about 3.5-percent.

A trend in more moderate price gains first began about a year ago. Before that, many of the nation’s major housing markets were seeing double-digit percentage gains. 

Analysts say it makes sense as the markets continue to normalize. Despite low mortgage interest rates, buyers are still searching for affordability. While listings are up about 20-percent right now in the Dallas-area over last year,

DFW Mixed Use DevelopmentDespite home sales struggling in early 2019, development still seems to be going strong throughout much of DFW. 

Most recently, another small mixed-use project has been announced for suburban Dallas, and this one appears to be in the works for Lewisville. 

According to recent reports, Nack Development will be looking to add 17,000 square feet of restaurant and office space across three buildings at Kealy and Church streets, a site that currently sits vacant.
