The Time is Now: Dallas-Forth Worth is A Healthy Real Estate Market

As we jump into the spring months, the Dallas-Fort Worth market is expected to be the second hottest in the country. A slow but steady rise in inventory levels is supporting a strong real estate market throughout the North Texas area as well.* In fact, in the first quarter of the year, median home sale prices in North Texas are up 9% compared to the first quarter of 2014.**

In the northern suburbs of Plano, Frisco and McKinney, demand continues to outpace supply thanks to several corporate relocations underway and on the drawing board. With business-friendly incentives, no state income tax, low levels of regulation and moderate housing costs, many businesses are moving their headquarters. Toyota Moto Corp. is among them, making the move from Southern California to North Dallas.*

Meanwhile, in the downtown Dallas area, the luxury high-rise market has risen as high as the buildings themselves. Homes worth over $1 million in the city center area, such as those at Museum Tower, have risen 13% in value within the last year.** It seems many suburban homeowners are downsizing in space while upgrading their everyday lifestyle to be in the city.

Of course, when it comes to high-rises in Dallas, Museum Tower is at the center of the conversation. We continue to lead in the luxury market and have sold almost 40% of our building. Sales are strong as two homes were purchased in April.

The current trajectory of the market looks like it will continue to rise. So if you have ever considered making the transition to luxury high-rise living in Dallas, now is the time to make the move. As more families search for homes with more to offer, Museum Tower will continue to stand out with a luxury lifestyle like nowhere else.
