Dallas is home to one of country’s biggest concentrations of McMansions

There are mansions, and then there are McMansions. Dallas has them all.

To be sure, North Texas is heralded for its massive ranches and sprawling estates. But it turns out the Dallas area also is a mecca for McMansions.

According to a new ranking from Realtor.com, Dallas is the sixth most McMansion-y metro area among the country’s 150 biggest metros. That’s based on the percentage of homes for sale measuring at least 3,000 square feet.

Realtor.com’s research unearthed nearly 9,000 of these properties listed on the website, up 35 percent from two years ago. This represents about 40 percent of the Dallas-area homes on the market, Realtor.com says.

Realtor.com did acknowledge a limitation in its McMansion sleuthing. The research encompasses all homes on the market that have at least 3,000 square feet, not just those that could be dubbed McMansions.

“Sure, this includes some tasteful, large homes and legit mansions,” Realtor.com says. “But it was impossible to separate those from the McMansions — it’s rare to see the word ‘tacky’ in a home listing.”

So, what qualifies as a “tacky” McMansion?

“The term was first attached to some of the brash would-be luxury homes cropping up in status-crazed Los Angeles,” Realtor.com explains. “Before long, developers went McMansion Mad. From coast to coast, they erected pricey, supersized homes that hogged just about every square inch of their lots. They were fancy. They were heavily ornamented. They were made to impress.”

McMansion construction largely stalled during the housing crash and the Great Recession, according to Realtor.com. But now that the economy is back on solid footing, McMansion construction appears to be making a comeback.

“If a buyer wants a McMansion, then come to Texas — I have some great ones,” Roxann Taylor, a broker at Engel & Völkers Dallas Southlake, tells Realtor.com. “Builders are putting up 4,000- to 6,000-square-foot homes, but they can’t build them quick enough.”

By the way, the average new single-family home in the U.S. has about 2,600 square feet. In other words, a lot of us don’t occupy McMansions.
