The US Bureau of Labor Statistics recently cited the Dallas - Fort Worth metropolitan area as first in the nation in both the rate of job growth and the number of jobs added during the past year. In fact, the area added more than 83,000 jobs over the past year.
This is particularly good news for the local real estate industry as well. Growth in real estate sales frequently follows growth in employment, and 83,000 new jobs in the area could mean hundreds or even thousands of home purchases over the next few years.
