DALLAS-FORT WORTH - The Metroplex should be the second busiest home building market in the country in 2015.
MetroStudy Inc. predicts that only Houston will have more single-family home starts in 2015 in a comparison of the country’s top building markets.
DFW home starts are forecast to top 28,000 units in 2015, compared with the Houston area’s more than 37,000 starts.
“Most of the other starts leaders in 2015 will be markets where builders can secure the raw material — labor, land, and materials — to start new projects,” MetroStudy reports.
“Builders in Dallas are pushing their capacity as well, as they assemble more lots and struggle to find enough skilled workers to keep up with demand.”
