With the rising costs and crazy housing market, are people feeling like leaving Dallas? I'm concerned about putting down serious roots here with everything being so volatile.

Agree with the above. Unless you are moving to a small town, you’ll experience the same thing in every major metro

Depends on the metro area. Definitely not Chicago, although it has been hot in areas. Not saying you should move there - the state is a fiscal train wreck with escalating taxes

Housing market at other places have not been as bad compared to few like Dallas, Austin, Phoenix, CA

I only see prices going up in desirable areas. There are too many people moving here.

The supply is less than a million homes for the entire country, until that number moves up the issue will persist across all desired metros .. no escaping that fact

BCG1: supply is something is available to consume :) .. my statistic is for brand new homes .. in my hood that is of critical importance for new movers from out of state

I think Dallas is still significantly better than the rest of the nation in terms of mortgage rates for large cities

Are you talking Dallas proper or the Suburbs? The suburbs are relatively affordable compared to other metro suburbs in the country. The best time to buy a house is when you are ready. So if you are ready now, find yourself a good realtor and start making offers.

Any recommendations? Thank you in advance.
