New Home Builders in Dallas Texas


Dallas new home builders survey from January 2015 finds confidence in the new home market high, despite being relatively unchanged from the month before. The National Association of Home Builders Housing Market Index measures builders’ confidence on a scale where any number above 50 indicates that more builders view conditions as good than poor.

In January, the Index declined one point to 57, after December’s reading was revised upward from 57 to 58. David Crowe, NAHB’s chief economist, said January’s reading is in line with the organization’s forecast heading into the new year.“January’s HMI reading is in line with our forecast as we head into the new year,” said Crowe ““Steady economic growth, rising consumer confidence and a growing labor market will help the housing market continue to move forward in 2015,” Crowe said.

Among the index’s three components, those measuring expectations for future Dallas new home sales and traffic of prospective buyers both fell, while the component gauging current conditions was unchanged. Regionally, the West, Midwest, and Northeast all saw gains from the month before, while the South slipped two points.

“After seven months above the key 50 benchmark, builder sentiment is reflecting the gradual improvement that is occurring in many markets throughout the nation,” said NAHB Chairman Kevin Kelly, a home builder and developer from Wilmington, Del.
