You can call them the best places to buy a home right now – and six of the Top 10 in WalletHub’s list of 2015’s Healthiest Housing Markets are in the suburbs north of Dallas.
WalletHub looked at 300 U.S. cities in terms of 14 indicators including median home-price appreciation to home price as a percentage of income to job growth, and came up with a list that includes these suburban hot spots in DFW:
1 – Frisco, TX
2 – Allen, TX
4 – Plano, TX
6 – Carrollton, TX
7 – McKinney, TX
9 – Richardson, TX
