DFW Housing Market is HOT! According to Zillow

Dallas-Fort Worth's housing market is on fire according to a recent report by Zillow. The Metroplex earned one of the top spots on Zillow's latest ranking of the country's 10 Hottest Real Estate Markets in 2019. DFW came in at #7 and was the only major Texas metro area on the list.

The real estate website says it crunched several sets of data to compute a “hotness” score for each of the 50 largest U.S. metros. In the “hotness” mix were projected median home value, projected rental growth, recent income and population growth, recent unemployment rate and recent number of available jobs.

DFW's ranking shows a shift away from the West Coast housing markets to more affordable housing markets in the south & southeast, according to Aaron Terrazas, senior economist at Zillow.

“Affordability is attractive — for both young professionals and booming businesses — earning markets like Orlando, Minneapolis, Dallas and Nashville top billing in 2019,” Terrazas says in a release.

Zillow states that four of the five hottest markets offer more job opportunities per person than 42 other major metros.
