While the housing market in North Texas is booming in regards to home sales, the entire state of Texas has enjoyed an amazing recovery from the recession of 2008 in terms of not only home sales, but jobs as well. The economy is flourishing, to say the least. All across Texas, the job rate is growing, increasing by up to more than 4% in the Fort Worth-Arlington area alone! Because of the excess of jobs available, employees are being imported into the ‘Lone Star State’ from all around the country. This means an increase in the need for homes, so should you purchase a previously owned home, or have a new custom home built in the Dallas area?
In the summer of 2014, many North Texas communities experienced significant increase in home prices. Why? When unemployment rates are down and jobs are plentiful, the demand for homes increases – the law of supply and demand, so to speak. That’s what happens when the number of sellers compared to the number of buyers is substantial. When tens of thousands of newly minted Texans are coming into the state because of jobs and the number of homes available is significantly less, home prices soar. Why not build a custom home in Flower Mound, Highland Village, or other prestigious community, instead of buying an existing home?
Sure, having a reputable Dallas custom home builder build a home to your specifications costs more initially, but consider the trade-off. When you are in the market for a home for your family, existing homes are limited in terms of the features and amenities you want. It’s hard to find a home with the square footage, layout, and features you need for your family. To put it bluntly, the search for a home that meets your family’s needs may be a nightmare. Why not build and avoid the stress, hassle, and paying tens of thousands more for a home that was previously priced much lower because of a slow economy?
Our advice? Build a custom home in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metro area.
To find the home of your dreams in the existing home market would make you an extremely lucky person. For most people, a home is the largest investment they’ll ever make. Why not have it perfectly suited to your needs and ideals of your dream home? When you choose a custom built home, every detail is precisely to your liking, down to the drawer-pulls on kitchen cabinets and door knobs. No scrambling around trying to find a home that suits your needs in terms of space, design, and features, no ‘bidding wars’ with other potential buyers. Your home is exactly as you had always envisioned, without the stress of fighting for the few available homes and ultimately paying more for a home that isn’t really what you’ve dreamed of!
