Fort Worth, Texas homes for sale are more accessibly priced according to Forbes, and the region as a whole also has an excellent three-year job growth forecast.
Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) February 15, 2011
Forbes magazine recently named the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area third in its top-ten list of “Cities Where the Recession is Easing,” reports the Fort Worth real estate team of Angela Redding and Jude Plauche. Forbes based its rankings on job growth and unemployment data, as well as estimated Gross Domestic Product and a single-family home’s median sales price.
According to the article, “the 10 cities where the recession is easing all have relatively healthy housing markets and are buffeted by industries like government, defense, education and technology that can offer work even in a national slump.” The Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington region, also known as the Metroplex, is comprised of 12 counties and almost the same number of major cities. It is an energy, defense, and information technology hub, as well as a center for the agricultural industry.
“The Metroplex was also included in another recent list from Forbes,” said Redding, “it was ranked #9 in its list of ‘America’s Best Housing Markets.’ The fact that the region keeps getting recognized is a testament to its many strengths – quite simply, this is a great place to work, play and live.”
Fort Worth, Texas homes for sale are more accessibly priced according to Forbes, and the region as a whole also has an excellent three-year job growth forecast. “Home prices have been holding steady here,” added Plauche. “And while there have been more Fort Worth, Texas foreclosures in recent years, foreclosures actually only make up 1.5 percent of the housing units in the DFW Metroplex real estate market.”
