East Texas sees home value increase
AUSTIN (Texas Tribune) — Only three large counties in the nation saw significant growth in home values from 2007 to 2012, according to a U.S. Census Bureau report released this month, and two of those counties — Bexar and Travis — were in Texas.
The Census Bureau analyzes three-year periods of American Community Survey data and found that the median home value in the United States in 2010-12 was $174,600, which was $17,300 less than in 2007-09. Of the 50 most populous counties in the country, two of the five with the lowest median home values were in Texas: Bexar ($123,500) and Dallas ($128,000).
