Third-quarter statistics show a continuing boom in the North Texas housing market. Residential Strategies reports an increase in the annual start rate of 17 percent, for the 12 months ending September 2014. Closings for the third quarter reached their highest point since 2008.
Meantime, prices continue to rise. The median price of a new home has increased $69,000, or 33 percent, to $275,000, since the beginning of the current housing cycle in the third quarter of 2009.
With strong job and population growth—buoyed by looming corporate relocations and expansions—the outlook is bright. To find out where the greatest opportunities and challenges lie, D CEO and D Real Estate Daily have assembled an all-star panel of experts for a real estate breakfast briefing.
