Although North Texas has gotten plenty of headlines regarding job and population growth over the last 12 months, 2016 has been a pretty good year for the entire Lone Star State as a whole. According to a recent release from realtor.com, each of the top 10 most searched locations in the U.S. this year were in Texas, with 18 of the top 20 also being right here in-state. Topping the list was the Waco and Woodway communities, while Carrollton, Hurst, Bedford, Plano, Dallas, and Arlington helped round out the top 10. Noted in the release is that popular cable TV show Fixer Upper undoubtedly contributed to how much Waco was searched throughout the year, but here in North Texas, many searching for active homes for sale or rent were real buyers and renters, which is just another testament to how active the DFW market has been over the last year or two. In fact, North Texas home sales overall hit record highs in 2016, up 26 in November along compared to November of 2015.
