Land prices aren’t so cheap as people flock to TX

Texas, the land of wide open spaces, had long been known for its abundant supply of cheap land. But that might be changing.

Economic growth and an influx of new residents are pushing up the price of land in the Lone Star State, according to research published this week by the Texas A&M Real Estate Center. As a result, land costs are accounting for an increasingly larger share of the price of a home here, while remaining low compared to the U.S. as a whole.

Statewide, 20.4 percent of the cost of a typical single-family home went to the land in 2016, up from 5 percent in 2011, the research shows. In Houston, the share rose to 25.1 percent in 2016 from 7.1 percent in 2011, the steepest incline among other large Texas markets.

The median price of a home in Texas rose from $138,000 at the beginning of 2011 to $230,500 in April, while in the Houston metro area it increased from $136,950 to $240,000, according to the real estate center.

In many parts of the state, a tight supply of homes on the market and a shortage of construction workers — problems that plague large parts of the U.S. — are causing home prices to surge.

Economic growth is drawing thousands of new residents to Texas, but there is a limited supply of land that is available to be developed, with access to all the required infrastructure, said Jim Gaines, the real estate center’s chief economist. He noted that municipal fees, such as impact fees intended to cover the cost of water infrastructure, are also on the rise.

“It’s a common-sense, obvious thing — as you grow the number of people and households, they’re going to need housing somewhere,” Gaines said. “The supply of the land is fairly plentiful, but supply is always relative.”

At 20.4 percent of the cost of a home, Texas land prices are still relatively cheap compared to elsewhere in the U.S., according to Texas A&M’s research. In 2016, the cost of land accounted for 33.5 percent of the price of a typical home nationwide, up from 24.8 percent in 2011.

But Texas has lost some of its edge in home affordability, which has historically helped the state attract residents from elsewhere, according to the research. In 2016, the median price of a home in Texas was 78.8 percent of the nationwide median, while in 2005 it was 61.6 percent.

Land prices are likely to continue their rise while Texas’s economy grows, Gaines said.

In San Antonio, land prices contributed to 15.2 percent of the cost of a home in 2016. In the Dallas metro area, land costs accounted for 29.4 percent of the cost and in Fort Worth, 22.4 percent.

“Until we figure out how to develop and convert that raw developable land into developed land, and to it at a cost-efficient ratio,” Gaines said, “we’re going to have this continuing thing.”

Fort Worth real estate agency Trademark Property Co. to build the future of the Galleria Dallas – Dallas Business Journal

Trademark Property Co. will work with retail, design, real estate, and development experts, along with city and community leaders, to develop a plan for one of Dallas’ most iconic shopping spots.

UBS Asset Management, which owns the Galleria Dallas, has hired Fort Worth-based Trademark to manage, lease and evolve the 1.4-million-square-foot development.

The Galleria is the “gateway” to the planned Midtown project, which is slated to bring 450 acres of new office, multifamily, retail and entertainment developments, as well as a city-programmed park. While apartments and office space are planned for the development, most construction has stalled due to disagreements over zoning and public sector initiatives.

Planning for the Galleria and surrounding property will begin immediately, UBS said in a news release, and will use feedback on what the future of the property should look like. Trademark will work with UBS to create a strategic plan and develop initiatives based on market and customer research, best practices and innovations in retail.

“We see enormous potential in Galleria Dallas as a true destination-worthy mixed-use district and gathering place for North Texas,” Trademark CEO Terry Montesi said in a prepared statement. “People expect more from mixed-use places today than ever before. We intend to consider every option as we evaluate how best to evolve Galleria Dallas – from the addition of other uses, improved service and experience, to added technology, destination-worthy common areas, and a thoughtful collection of best-in-class retail and restaurants. It’s about identifying strategies that fit the changing role of brick and mortar retail and mixed-use places in customers’ lives.”

Trademark has also worked on developments like Dallas’ Victory Park and Fort Worth’s WestBend.

Surprise? It Costs More To Rent A Luxury Apartment In Houston Than In Dallas Or Austin

Want to live in luxury in Texas? It will cost you more in Houston than in Dallas or Austin.

A high-end apartment in Houston costs about $1,448/month, RentCafé reports, using data from Yardi Matrix. In Dallas, the average is $1,428, and in Austin it is $1,432. Houston and Dallas have the same spread between high-end and low-end multifamily offerings: $490. Austin’s gap is smaller; residents only have to fork over $371 more to make the quality leap in the capital.

The cost of living in Texas is still lower than much of the U.S. The national average rent in a high-end building is $1,640/month.

Dallas may overtake Houston soon for priciest apartments. Its luxury rents have increased 7.4% in the past three years. Austin’s have risen 6.7%, while Houston’s are only up 1.8% since 2015.

The amount of multifamily supply coming online is expected to drive apartment rents down across the nation. Most of the multifamily projects that delivered in 2017 were high-end apartments. Dallas and Houston are among the top 10 cities in the nation with the most apartment inventory scheduled to deliver this year. New supply is expected to level off in 2019.

Washoe County Votes to Dismiss Appeal, Move Forward on Housing Development

Link with diabetes med and complication Diabetics forgo finger sticks Broccoli promising for diabetics

The Lemmon Valley area is set to get more than 200 new homes if a planned development moves forward, but residents in the area are fighting it, saying it will make their homes less safe.

Members of the Lemmon Valley/Swan Lake Recovery Committee were trying to stop the development using an appeal, but Tuesday afternoon the commission voted that the appeal wasn’t valid.

That came as a big disappointment to the appellants, who crowdfunded on social media to pay for the process.

"We had over 190 people donate for us to do this appeal," Lemmon Valley resident Tammy Holt-Still said. "None of these residents are being heard. It’s all developers and that’s it."

The commission voted three to one to dismiss the appeal, because the appellant (Holt-Still) lives too far away from the development to merit consideration. County officials say that rule is meant to stop people who don’t live near the area from interfering in other people’s neighborhoods. The county sends notices to the homes within the immediate area of development, so they can give public comment.

Holt-Still called their reasoning "disgusting," saying she should be allowed to appeal.

"Considering my backyard flooded from that last year, and the fact that mosquitoes travel three miles, it does affect me," Holt-Still said.

The Lemmon Valley Heights project would add 206 homes to a 128-acre parcel off of Estates Road, on the east side of Lemmon Drive. The project is near Swan Lake, the previously dry lake bed that filled with water and flooded homes during the unusually wet winter of 2016-2017. The lake bed still has water in it, and some homes still show damage from the flooding. The county has put up HESCO barriers to keep the water back, but it’s an expensive solution to maintain, and it isn’t foolproof. The county is planning to buy up the worst affected homes so the owners can relocate and that area can be barred from further habitation.

Now, the concern from residents in the Lemmon Valley/Swan Lake Recovery Committee is that additional development will just make the flood risk worse, since developed land doesn’t absorb as much water as open land.

County officials say the developer is required to build to code, which includes managing any extra water runoff.

"I think it’s really important for everybody to know that we don’t just willy nilly approve development," Assistant Washoe County Manager Dave Solaro said. "There’s a whole long process this goes through to make sure that it makes the requirements currently within our code."

Solaro said the developer still has to pass a lot of hurdles to get the first building permits, but he does expect that to happen. And from the county perspective, he said building more homes is much needed.

"We are all struggling with trying to make sure we’ve got affordable housing," Solaro said, "and this is one way to do it, by actually creating more housing pool available."

Holt-Still said their group plans to keep fighting the project, saying they don’t believe the measures being taken by the developer are sufficient to mitigate the flood danger.
