Dallas, the commercial and cultural hub of north Texas, is home to more than 1.3 million residents and a workforce of approximately 3.4 million people. Dallas’ diverse economy includes 21 Fortune 500 companies and 300 corporate headquarters that each employ more than 1,000 people globally. Seven of the Forbes’ 2016 list of the largest privately held companies in the nation are located in the north Texas area.

The area’s educated workforce, where 32 percent of regional workers have at least a college degree, continues to draw business to the region, according to the City of Dallas Office of Economic Development. Dallas has particularly high concentrations of businesses in the management, finance, computing, architecture, engineering, sciences, education and health services fields. Dallas also boasts an attractive quality of life, with an affordable cost of living, no personal income tax, and highly rated public schools.

Commercial real estate in Dallas is currently on a growth trajectory due to consistent job gains of more than 100,000 jobs annually during the last few years, or a 25 percent increase since 2010, according to real estate professional services firm JLL. Job growth is occurring across all major industries, which has resulted in an increase in commercial real estate construction. Real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield reported that the Dallas commercial real estate market is the country’s third strongest investment market behind Manhattan and Los Angeles, having posted record commercial property sales transaction volume of $20.5 billion in 2016.

Dallas’ strong labor market, population and job growth, and stable economy indicate that the commercial real estate industry in Dallas will continue to outpace other markets in the country for the foreseeable future.
