One of the major indexes for mortgage insurance lists the Dallas-Plano market as one of the strongest in terms of price stability and affordability. PMI Insurance Co. released it's Summer 2008 Market Risk Index this week and reports the Dallas-Plano area is listed as having less than a 1% chance of further price weakening vs. over 90% for areas such as Riverside, CA and Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Bear in mind these are the actuarial numbers, the risk assessments that the insurance companies use to assess how much the mortgage insurance risks will be, not marketing projections, so are probably highly reliable. See the complete report at http://www.pmi-us.com/eret.
And this week CNBC ranks Texas as tops in business strength with many advantages that continually draw more people to Texas. Yippee!
