While some jobs went away in early 2020, the Dallas-Fort Worth area is currently seeing some big gains when it comes to construction jobs. According to some of the latest figures from the Associated General Contractors of America, the region’s building sector saw a gain of 7,400 jobs this past December, when compared to the previous December. 

The Dallas area alone saw about 5,800 of those new construction jobs. That’s significant, because 2020 saw a loss of 4,000 jobs. 

For those keeping tabs on the market, the numbers probably aren’t too surprising. With a 45-percent increase in residential and commercial construction starts, North Texas was the nation’s second busiest market for building in the entire nation last year.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed what many people are looking for in their homes—and, as such, it’s shifted major home and design trends.

And it looks like many of those trends are going to continue long after the pandemic is over.

A recent article from realtor.com outlined the pandemic-related housing and design trends that are likely to stick around post-COVID, including:

  • A shift to the suburbs. Many city dwellers are leaving crowded urban areas in search of more space in the suburbs—and now that more companies are going remote (and workers aren’t tied to any particular city), it’s likely that trend is going to continue.
  • Clean and cozy design. People are spending more time at home than ever before—and they’re trying to make their homes
