What the Job Market in Texas Means for You

By Jeff Cheney | On

We have talked a lot over the last year about how Texas’ growing economy and thriving job market has impacted the housing market. While many areas in the United States are dealing with a struggling economy and, in turn, mediocre housing market, Texas is experiencing the opposite problem. Over the last several years construction – both residential and business – has been at an all-time high. It seems that it’s the only thing area builders can do to keep up with the demand for new housing throughout Frisco, Plano, and elsewhere in North Texas. As we continue to see huge developments like Celina’s Light Farms, Legacy West, Craig Ranch, and Frisco Station near the Dallas Cowboys’ new headquarters continue to add residential and business options, this is shaping up to be another record year for home buyers and sellers alike.

The Migration to Texas

Since 2014 we have seen an influx of big businesses moving their headquarters to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, including Plano and Frisco. This is due in large part to North Texas’, in particular, booming economy and the affordable cost of living. Combine these two factors and you have an unbeatable situation, and one that is making North Texas one of the hottest spots in the country for buying and selling a house. Among the most recognizable corporations that have planted their roots in our area are Toyota, State Farm, American Airlines, and JPMorgan Chase. As you can imagine, with these companies moving to the DFW areas comes their employees and their families, too. However, that’s not the only reason people from all over the country are making the move to Texas. For one, Texas has lower tax rates than most parts of the country and, as mentioned above, an impressively low cost of living. This is particularly appealing to those moving from areas of the country where housing prices are through the roof – such as California, New York, and even Colorado.

How This Affects Those Selling a Home

So, what does all this mean for those looking to sell their Frisco home? While builders struggle to keep up with the demand, people interested in selling their North Texas home are in luck. In fact, many – especially corporate transplants – are interested in “move-in ready” homes, making it a hot market for those looking for a quick sale. It is important to keep in mind that there is a lot that goes into selling a home, even in an area with as hot a market as here. This is why it is crucial that you enlist the services of a knowledgeable Frisco Realtor.
