Some Hard Facts, Regarding Dallas Housing Market in 2017


Pick your data point, Zillow, and many other real estate sources are seeing records being shattered in the DFW area. In the first month of  2016, the Dallas area ranked No. 3 nationally for home price gains, trailing only Denver and San Francisco, but easily besting Houston and New York, according to CoreLogic. By the end of 2017 Dallas was 2nd in the nation. And real estate tracking firm Zillow Group says prices in the Dallas area will continue to climb.


The national pacesetter during the period analyzed was the Texas capital of Austin, where the value of a typical home soared by 64.9 percent between Sept. 30, 2006, and Sept. 30, 2016. Denver ranked second with an increase of 45.5 percent. Rounding out the top five was a trio of Texas metropolitan areas: Houston (up 45.2 percent), Dallas (43.6 percent) and San Antonio (35.9 percent)

How about construction?

That’s hot, too. Hammering on nearly 30,000 new homes is expected to start here this year. That will make Dallas the No. 1 area in the country for single-family home construction, beating out longtime leader Houston. And what about the economic fundamentals that drive the housing market.

Those data points are hot, too. Dallas’ unemployment rate is less than 4 percent, a level many economists consider “full employment.” The area has been adding about 100,000 jobs annually.

And more employers are headed this way. In Plano, Toyota North America built a 2-million-square-foot campus on a 100-acre site while Liberty Mutual Insurance and JPMorgan Chase are coming to the $3 billion Legacy West development. In Richardson, State Farm and Raytheon set up shop in the $1.5 billion CityLine development.

In Westlake, Charles Schwab Corporation is building a campus. In Southlake, TD Ameritrade is doing the same. In August 2017, the economists and analysts at created a list of the hottest real estate markets in the U.S. for that particular month. Their “hotness” rankings were based in part on how quickly homes are selling, and how much demand there is from buyers.

According to the report:

“[Chief economist Jonathan] Smoke and his team looked at the median number of days homes spent on the market to gauge the supply of homes for sale, and the number of listing views per market to arrive at a list of the 20 hottest real estate markets in the country.”

Based on their analysis, Dallas was ranked as the second-hottest real estate market in the nation for the month of August, with relatively quick sales and strong demand.
Perhaps this is why most 2017 forecasts for the Dallas housing market are calling for continued (and significant) home-price gains next year. There is a lot of demand for homes across North Texas, but limited supply. This is putting upward pressure on residential property values and Dallas is HOT!


The general consensus appears to be that home prices in Dallas will continue to rise steadily in 2017, but at a slower pace than the last couple of years.

Housing demand is expected to remain strong due to low mortgage rates and the relatively strong job market in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.

Rising home prices could weaken demand, though, as affordability becomes an issue for some would-be buyers.
