Smaller cities are nation's 'healthiest' for housing

Texas, California and Colorado locales score highest on jobs, property values, home equity

A recent analysis of 300 U.S. cities shows that the “healthiest” housing markets are primarily submarkets of Dallas, Denver and San Jose. According to a recent WalletHub report, the Dallas submarkets of Frisco, Allen, McKinney, Plano, Carrollton and Richardson are among the top 10 healthy housing markets. All but one of these markets — Plano — has a population below 150,000.
