Dallas is a Great Place to Own a Home

Are you in the market for a new home? You might consider moving to the Dallas metropolitan area. Last year, Dallas ranked among the top 20 healthiest housing markets according to Builder magazine.  The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics dubbed the metro area a “rebounding economy” due to its addition of 50,800 non-farm jobs last year, a 1.8% increase in employment.

Strong employment prospects and affordable housing have been attracting people to Dallas for several years now. The median price of a home in the area rose just 1.2% in 2010. And the Dallas Economic Development Council recently announced plans to revitalize the city’s downtown to cater to young professionals.

Builder magazine says home builders remain bullish on the area’s prospects – pulling 19,500 single-family permits last year, 33% more than in 2009.  One of the premier home builders in North Dallas is Landon Homes. Headed by John Landon, a leading force in homebuilding and development since the 1980s, Landon Homes has quickly become a dominant player in the Texas housing industry.

Landon Homes has raised the standard among home builders in North Dallas in the area of energy efficiency – becoming one of the first to use 2×6 exterior wall construction, instead of 2×4. The thicker walls hold 57% more insulation, reducing unwanted heat loss or gain.  That lower demand for energy translates into lower utility bills for Landon customers.

Landon Homes builds affordable, eco-friendly homes in Frisco, Little Elm, McKinney, and North Dallas, TX. Visit our website to see the variety of floor plans and options available to create the home of your dreams.
