The Overlooked America’s Fourth City
Home to 22 Fortune 500 corporations, Dallas is known for its booming economy and is a major center for the telecommunication, energy, healthcare, transportation, information technology, and financial services sectors.
The diversity of its economic sectors and friendly business environment have attracted major employers to expand and innovative tech companies to move in. We’ve seen as a result the thriving job market in Dallas with about 300,000 annual growth in 2022, only after New York and Los Angeles. And the population grows 2.73x faster than the national average.
Why Invest in Mesquite
Historically, home prices in Mesquite have been considerably lower than in Dallas. However, things are changing as more people move from the big city to nearby smaller communities that offer transportation links and family-friendly amenities. It’s not uncommon for Mesquite residents to commute to and from downtown Dallas.
Mesquite—where you’ll find our latest properties S7, S8, and S9—is considered more affordable than living in Dallas itself. Looking at the area’s numbers, Mesquite had a home value index of $306,000 in August 2022, according to Zillow. Dallas, on the other hand, had an index of 393,000. However, the real story lies behind Zillow’s year-on-year numbers. In just 12 months, Mesquite’s home value index has increased by 31.9% compared to Dallas’ 23.6%.
You’ll tend to find relatively newer and relatively cheaper homes here —a safe community surrounded by beautiful scenery. It might be quieter than downtown Dallas, but this community is by no means sleepy. There’s a lot of potential for Mesquite property investments to increase in market price since major companies are located close by. CBRE Group and Texas Instruments, for example, are just a short drive away. Goldman Sachs has just announced earlier this year of its expansion to add 5000 new job opportunities to the area.
For these reasons and others, The Mesquite investment market is hot right now. With homeownership rates of 59.2%—lower than the national average of 64.4%, it is expected to be a popular rental market, generating stable incomes for investors. Median rent has gone up +41.4% in the past 5 years, also x1 faster than rent increase in the city of Dallas.
