It's not a surprise to me, but Texas swept the top 5 spots in Builder magazine’s list of “Healthiest Housing Markets for 2009.”
Houston ranked first, Austin second, Fort Worth third, San Antonio fourth and Dallas fifth.
We have been saying for a long time that we are lucky to be in Texas. For those of us here, I don't think we know how lucky we really are. Sure there are title & mortgage companies going out of business and real estate professionals changing careers daily, but the Texas housing market remains strong and for that we should be thankful! GO TEXAS!
