New Data From Local Real Estate Company Opendoor Shows Surprising Findings

BY // 12.11.19

There are hundreds of Dallas and Fort Worth homes for sale (with more being added every day) right now on Opendoor, the site that makes it a breeze to buy or sell a home with a few steps online. And because every person who tours an Opendoor listing — approximately 1.5 million across the country in 2019 — uses their app to unlock the front door, the company has a pretty good idea about where Dallasites and Fort Worthians were most interested in hanging their hat this year.

The most popular zip code to buy in the Metroplex right now? That would be 76244 in Keller, a part of Tarrant County that’s north of Fort Worth. This area saw the most potential buyers in 2019, while 76179 in Saginaw and 75052 in Grand Prairie round out the top three.

Another Saginaw neighborhood made the Top 10 — 76131 at No. 8 — while two Fort Worth areas (76123 and 76133) clocked in at No. 9 and No. 10 respectively.

Also seeing an influx of interest were 76137 (Watauga, No. 4), 75068 (Oak Point, No. 5), 76277 (Aubrey, No. 6), and 75126 (Heath, No. 7).

All 10 zip codes are on the periphery of the DFW metro area, with six alone clustered around the fast-growing hub of Fort Worth. This is a trend that Opendoor consumer trends expert Beatrice de Jong attributes to both the continued constraint of affordable homes in the Metroplex and the rise of people working remotely. As she explains in a recent Opendoor report, “Many people are moving to smaller cities and more suburban or rural areas. With remote work, they can prioritize affordability and the lifestyle they want, and get more bang for their buck in places outside of the center of a big city.”

As for sellers, those who lived in Saginaw’s 76179 saw the most traffic through their front door. Heath’s 75126 and Keller’s 76244 are near the top again, while 76227 in Aubrey and 75052 in Grand Prairie swooped in to round out the top five.

Fort Worth’s 76123, Burleson’s 76028, Oak Point’s 75068, Grand Prairie’s 76052, and Saginaw’s 76131 finish out the Top 10 in Dallas-Fort Worth.

While Americans in 2019 may have moved at the lowest rate ever recorded, there will always be a need to relocate, upgrade, downsize or invest. When it’s time to pack your own boxes, Opendoor makes it easy to request a competitive, cash offer on your home and choose your closing date so you can easily move onto what’s next in life.

If 2020 is going to be your year to buy, download the free Opendoor app and start shopping. Use the app to go self tour Opendoor homes anytime between 6 am to 9 pm, seven days a week, no appointment needed.

Interested in a home that’s not listed by Opendoor? Their new buyer service now lets you find and buy any for sale home in the Metroplex — from a loft downtown to a stunner in Plano — right through their app. Happy house hunting.
