A slight increase in oil prices also made the numbers for Texas look good.

The Housing Market
Housing sales were up last month. The Dallas/Fort Worth area is attracting new businesses which mean it is also attracting new people to move to the area. Land development and construction costs are contributing to the rising price of homes. Permits for single-family housing construction rose statewide by 2.1%. But, overall new home construction was held back somewhat because of a shortage of skilled labor and availability of developed lots. Numbers show that new homes starting in the $300,000-$349,000 range jumped 81.2%. New homes at $200,000 and under dropped 14.6%. Demand for lower-priced housing is high while the supply is limited. Home prices may level out some, but are predicted to continue to inch upward in the near future.
