One of my favorite resources is the Real Estate Center Online News, or RECON. Twice a week, they offer the latest news on what’s happening in Texas real estate.
Last week, Jim Gaines, chief economist at the Texas A&M Real Estate Center, spoke to the International Council of Shopping Centers’ annual Texas Retail Forecast. While Mr. Gaines expects continued growth in the DFW area, he did raise concerns over the continued decline in manufacturing, and the recovery of the housing sector.
He also stated he is keeping an eye on bills being introduced in the Texas Legislature, federal regulations, and U.S. trade policies. If you’d like to read more, I have attached a link to Mr. Gaines’s comments.
