Forbes Ranks Dallas As The Best City To Invest in Housing

According to Forbes,


Dallas ranks #1 as
the best city to invest
in housing in 2017 


This comes as no surprise
to those of us that call the
Dallas Metroplex home!



As reported by Samantha Sharf on the Forbes staff,
Dallas dominates: The home of Exxon Mobil and the Dallas Cowboys
claims the #1 ranking this year. Dallas has an average home price of $233,000. That’s up 3.9% from a year ago and underpriced by 3%
compared to the city’s historic average. Local Market Monitor
forecasts prices will increase 31% by 2020 thanks in part to 3.9% job
growth in the past year and 6.2% population growth in the last three.

It makes sense to me.  Your town has so much to offer and prices are still somewhat affordable.

The median price of a home is actually less than I was expecting! Very attractive!

Good morning Lisa.  I don't think we'll come close however, the market around here is booming my forecast, 2017 is going to be a banner year

I agree with a good investment if you want to live in your own home but for investors Dallas is below a 5% cap rate. The market is geared to owner-occupant sales.

Congratulation to Dallas, Lisa... no doubt a great city. Almost moved their myself several times during my corporate life.
