Dallas Housing Market Information

With a population of 4,622, 1,854 total housing units (homes and apartments), and a median house value of $115,258, house prices in Dallas are solidly below the national average.

Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Dallas, accounting for 73.92% of the town's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Dallas include large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 10.23%), mobile homes or trailers ( 9.00%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 5.00%).

People in Dallas primarily live in small (one, two or no bedroom) single-family detached homes. Dallas has a mixture of owner-occupied and renter-occupied housing.

At the end of World War II, American soldiers returned home triumphant and, with the help of the GI Bill, built homes by the millions on the edges of America's cities. These homes were predominantly capes and ranches, modest in size, but built to house a growing middle-class as the 20th century became the American century. Dallas's housing was primarily built during this period, from the '40s through the '60s. A full 40.50% of the town's housing hails from this era. Other housing ages represented in Dallas include homes built between 1970-1999 ( 26.56%) and housing constructed between 2000 and later ( 24.99%). There's also some housing in Dallas built before 1939 ( 7.95%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Dallas. Fully 11.76% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Dallas homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Dallas real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied. Housing vacancy rates are a useful measure to consider, along with other things, if you are a home buyer or a real estate investor.
