Mortgage rates in Dallas fell this week. Meanwhile, the Dallas commercial real estate market is firing on all cylinders, and it may not slow anytime soon.

This week's rates

The benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage in Dallas fell to 4.14 percent from 4.19 percent, according to the Bankrate.com national survey of large lenders. The mortgages in this week's survey had an average total of 0.51 discount and origination points. Nationally, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 4.12 percent.

The blazing hot commercial market

The commercial real estate market is booming in Dallas. Heavy population growth and job gains are pushing up the demand for commercial real estate in the area, according to The Dallas Morning News.

And there are no signs that the trend will end anytime soon, notes the Morning News.

Overall, Texas was the top commercial property market in the country last year, according to a report by NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association.

Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to create a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.|
