Business is Booming in DFW

It is not hard to believe that business is booming in DFW. Driving on 35E last week I saw five large cranes used to build new large buildings in Dallas. More infrastructure is being being built every day.

Starting May 15, 2017, the first wave of Toyota employees — mostly in facilities and information systems management — has begun working in the new 2 million square foot North American headquarters in Plano. By December 11, 2017, about 4,000 Toyota employees will work in the 100-acre development. The company plans to move in employees in waves of about 250, with a peak of about 350 during the summer. Construction is expected to officially end in October and the project is reported to have remained on schedule.

More than 18 million passengers are expected to travel through Dallas Fort Worth International Airport during the 2017 summer travel period — a projected increase of 3.5% over last year. More than 65 million customers pass through DFW Airport every year, making it one of the most frequently visited superhub airports in the world. The airlines serving the DFW offer a total of 163 domestic and 55 international nonstop destinations worldwide, including new nonstop routes to Rome and Amsterdam. DFW Airport plans to spend $400 million on infrastructure, including an August 2017 start date for a new north entry cellphone lot, a better baggage handling system at Terminal B, passenger boarding bridges and more employee parking over the next few years.

This is a great time to buy real estate. With all the new families moving to the Metroplex, you might want to consider buying an investment property or maybe you might want to sell your home to realize your investment. The market is hot now, but all the indicators show that the demand for homes is going to continue. If you would like to discuss your situation, please give me a call at 214-769-2947. I would love to talk with you.
