​​SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Four Texas metros have topped Realtor.com's list of markets with the largest price appreciation since 2006. 

Austin-Round Rock took the top spot with 62.9 percent home price growth in ten years. In 2006, the metro's median home price was $173,510, jumping to $282,625 in 2016. 

Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington (51.6 percent), San Antonio-New Braunfels (45.9 percent), and Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land (45.5 percent) ranked third, fourth, and fifth, respectively.

The only metro outside of Texas landing in the top five was No. 2 Denver-Aurora-Lakewood with 53.5 percent growth. 

Nationally, the median home price increased from $232,000 in 2006 to $236,000 last year.

While home prices have returned to the boom levels of a decade ago, there are no signs of a real estate "bubble" bursting, says Realtor.com Chief​ Economist Danielle Hale. Backed by tighter lending standards like the Dodd-Frank Act and Consumer Protection Act, current price appreciation is now driven by strong supply-and-demand fundamentals.
