The Dallas-area real estate market is hottest than ever. In the first month of this year, the Dallas area ranked No. 3 nationally for home price gains, trailing only Denver and San Francisco, but easily topping Houston and New York, according to CoreLogic. And real estate tracking firm Zillow Group says prices in the Dallas area will continue to climb in 2016, increasing 5.5 percent.
Nearly 30,000 new homes is expected to start in Dallas this year. That will make Dallas the No. 1 area in the country for single-family home construction.
