Carrollton Ranks in Best Real Estate Markets Across the U.S.
The City of Carrollton was ranked as one of the top 50 cities nationwide in WalletHub 2021’s Best Real Estate Markets report.
The financial planning website analyzed more than 300 cities of varying sizes in the United States across two key dimensions. The first was the real-estate market, and the second was affordability and economic environment.
Each city was also categorized by population with Carrollton ranking among the top 14 percent of the healthiest real estate cities analyzed in the United States, the fourth best city for the real estate market in the Metroplex for its size, and the seventh in Texas overall.
The study addressed 18 key indicators including home value forecast, median days on the market, share of young homes, vacancy rate, median credit scores, housing affordability, unemployment rate to job growth, and others. Each metric was scored from 0 to 100, with 100 representing the healthiest housing market. The weighted average of these individual metric scores was then used to calculate an overall score, which was used to ultimately determine their rank.
Data used to create these rankings was obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), The Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), Zillow, TransUnion, Chmura Economics & Analytics, the National Association of REALTORS, ATTOM Data Solutions (RealtyTrac), and WalletHub research.
