US new-home sales fell 7.8% in May

But in Texas and the South, Up 4.9%

Sales of new U.S. homes slumped 7.8% in May, as sales plunged in the pricier Northeastern and Western markets.  The Commerce Department said Tuesday that new homes sold at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 626,000 in May, down from 679,000 in April. During the first five months of the year, purchases of new homes have fallen 3.7% compared to the same period in 2018.  Lower mortgage rates and a healthy job market have yet to unleash more home-buying. Sales of new homes plummeted 35.9% in the West and 17.6% in the Northeast. New-home sales rose 4.9% in the South and 6.3% in the Midwest, which are generally more affordable markets.

Six Dallas Suburbs Rank Top Cities to Live in Chamber of Commerce Survey

 

Texans are famously prideful of their home state, and rightfully so: the Lone Star State is home to some of the best food and beer in the country, a vast and varied landscape, a great football tradition, and a ton of cities, each with their own unique character and distinct qualities. As the communities of Texas boast a surprising amount of variety, you're best advised to read through our overview of the state's five best cities to live in for advice on where to settle down. (Source: https://www.chamberofcommerce.org/best-cities-to-live-in-texas/)

 

  • 1.  Flower Mound
  • 2.  Houston
  • 3.  Richardson
  • 4.  Frisco
  • 5.  Pflugerville
  • 6.  Allen
  • 7.  Coppell
  • 8.  Woodway
  • 9.  Sugar Land
  • 10.  Roanoke

 

Methodology:

"We ranked a total of 2,509 qualified cities (those with populations above 25,000 and enough data for analysis) by five factors: employment (number of establishments, median earnings); housing (owner-occupied housing with a mortgage, monthly housing costs); quality of life (work commute, poverty levels); education (percentage with a bachelor's degree or higher); and health (obesity ratios)."
