According to Dietz the population in the Longview area is not growing as fast as the state as a whole, yet demand is outpacing supply.

He said population growth in Gregg, Rusk and Upshur counties was a modest 0.4 percent in 2015 and 0.1 percent in 2016.

He estimated 240 homes are built in the Longview market per year with an average home price at $267,267.​
