Realtor.com: Waco & Dallas Hottest U.S. Housing Markets
It's certainly shaping up to be a hot spring housing market. A lot of competition for the good ones, keeping housing prices strong. The dogs are still sitting on the sidelines a while, but they too are finding buyers, though many of the millennials buying for the first time have begun slowing due to frustration in competing for the good ones. - Greg
Realtor.com has determined the current top 20 U.S. housing markets, and Waco sits at the top of the list, followed immediately by Dallas. Analysts with the website used last month's housing data to compile the list, examining the median age of February housing inventory as well as traffic on Realtor.com.
Writes Jonathan Rienstra on CultureMapAustin, "Active Waco listings on Realtor.com are viewed, on average, 335 times — the highest in the country. Dallas comes in second, at 219 pageviews per active listing. To put that in perspective, the national average is 73 pageviews per active listing.
"The median age of housing inventory in Dallas-Fort Worth is 62 days. That’s the best in Texas — and 41 days shorter than the national average of 103. Although Waco doesn’t appear in the top 20 on that list, it earns the title as hottest projected market because of online activity."
No other Texas cities landed in the top 20. -Real Estate Center, Texas A & M
