Is buying a home in Dallas-Fort Worth still a good investment?

Jill Rooney found a house she liked with quartz countertops and wood floors in Mansfield, and immediately offered to buy it for $210,000.

That was $15,000 over the asking price. And it wasn’t enough.

“I went 15 grand over, and I thought for sure I had this house,” said Rooney, 39, a Mansfield High School teacher. “I even wrote a personal letter to one of the owners.

Stayed A Few Nights In Fort Worth Texas Visiting Family

I have family that lives in Fort Worth Texas and we hadn’t seen each other in awhile. They asked me if I wanted to come stay for a few days to visit with them.
