D-FW has half of the top 10 best U.S. home markets, including Frisco, Denton and McKinney

Frisco, Denton, McKinney, Carrollton and Allen were ranked among the best U.S. real estate markets by WalletHub.

That's what researchers who prepared the 2019 Best Real Estate Markets report for personal finance website WalletHub found when they did their  annual survey.

Frisco, Denton, McKinney, Carrollton and Allen were all in the top 10 ranking for the nation's hottest home markets.

The scorecard ranked cities across the U.S. for everything from median home price appreciation to home sales turnover rate to job growth.

Frisco ranked second just behind Boise, Idaho, according to the recently released report.


Denton came in at fifth place, and McKinney and Carrollton were number six and seven on the list.

Allen was number nine.

Diving deeper into the data, Austin (No. 12) and Fort Worth (No. 13) were in the top 20.

Dallas came in at 112 — not exactly bragging rights.

"For this report, we compared 300 cities of different sizes," WalletHub's Diana Polk said in an email. "We selected the cities based on availability of data, and it makes sense that bigger states, as is Texas, would have more cities present in our ranking."

Other high-rated home markets this year were Overland Park, Kan.; Cary, N.C.; and Fort Wayne, Ind.

Newark, N.J.,and Detroit were rated the worst.
