“In-migration is extremely strong and fueling a lot of the growth across Dallas-Fort Worth and its submarkets. Homeowners are fleeing the East and West Coast cities for the affordability and lower taxes of places like Dallas-Fort Worth,” said Burdine of Land Advisors Organization’s Dallas-Fort Worth office. “This significantly increased demand coupled with historically low interest rates will drive the success of this much-needed new home community.”

The firm continues to advise clients on this product type and is working on several similar projects in the area, according to a news release. D.R. Horton is based in Arlington.
