The Dallas North Tollway is expected to expand through Prosper so this community’s desirability really only has one way to go
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) November 28, 2014
What was formerly known as a farming community outside of the metropolis of Dallas, Prosper is starting to get a breath of fresh air as development is transforming the area. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty Texas reports Prosper is seeing the overflow of home buyers and developers from dense areas like Plano and Frisco as new shopping centers, office buildings and medical facilities are being mapped out along U.S. Highway 380 in southern Prosper.
A November 20 report by The Dallas Morning News found that home builders are plotting out sites of land in Prosper as nearby neighborhoods are seeing demand skyrocket and available land decrease. Builders got started on more than 400 homes in Prosper during the first three quarters of 2014 and many more are expected to be constructed over the next few years.
The home value in Prosper increased fairly significantly just in the past year. According to Altos Research, a California-based real estate analytics company, the median single-family home value was about $489,900 as of November 14. This marks nearly a $40,000 increase in the median home value in the past 12 months.
Demand for homes here has fluctuated greatly here in the past 12 month as well, showing this community is getting more active. Altos uses a unique figure called the Market Action Index to determine whether the market is leaning in favor of home buyers or sellers based on a neutral value of 30. While the index was just slightly in favor of home buyers with a score of 29.17 as of November 14, trends showed this index reached above that neutral line during the busiest real estate season.
“It was only a matter of time that home buyers would look farther than the immediate suburbs of Dallas, and Prosper has incredible potential to be an even more amazing community than it already is,” says DD Flynn VP of Marketing at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty Texas. “The Dallas North Tollway is expected to expand through Prosper so this community’s desirability really only has one way to go.”
Even during the low point of the real estate season, there are a lot of homes on the market, showing home owner’s confidence in Prosper’s progression. Altos reported about 228 homes for sale in the middle of November, which is the largest amount of available homes in the past 12 months.
