Population growth is through the roof and companies from throughout the nation are making the move to North Texas. Prudential Texas Properties reports these positive trends continue to show why Dallas-Fort Worth real estate is as hot as ever to get into.

According to the U.S. Metro Economies report, the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington region ranks No. 6 in the nation for its booming economy. In 2013, the North Texas economy grew to $440.1 billion, marked by major highway expansions, mixed-use development projects, an explosive housing market and more.

The median single-family home value in Fort Worth has increased from less than $152,000 in January to more than $167,400 as of June 20. This weighted 90-day average has seen virtually no downward trends, showing that the market is consistently strong.
