DFW: hottest housing market in U.S.DFW: hottest housing market in U.S.https://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=11302015-05-05T09:48:00Z2015-05-04T00:00:00Z

DALLAS-FORT WORTH - The Dallas-Fort Worth area has the hottest housing market in the country, according to new report by Realtor.com.

Analysts rated the top markets in April based on demand for housing and how long it takes to sell a property.

“Sellers are seeing listings move between 29 and 49 days more quickly than in the rest of the country and at an accelerating pace from just last month — an average of five days faster,” Realtor.com economist Jonathan Smoke said in the report.

So far in 2015, median single-family home sales prices in North Texas are up about 9 percent from a year ago. And the number of homes sold in the area so far this year by Realtors is 4 percent higher than in 2014.

“Dallas is one of the top 15 hottest so it’s definitely not slowing down,” Smoke said.
