Like most Lone Star state housing markets, Fort Worth's home prices remained fairly stable during the boom and bust years.Two big factors helped keep the market from imploding: home building was cheap and the local economy strong. Wide open spaces and lax regulations helped keep land cheap and building costs low. While the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport kept a steady supply of jobs and buyers coming to the area. But now, as even more employers move into the metro area, there has been a surge in buyer demand -- and home prices. Amazon (AMZN, Fortune 500) is building a distribution warehouse in Alliance, just North of the city, that will employ 1,000 workers. Wal-Mart (WMT, Fortune 500) and Motorola are also planning new facilities there, according to the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce.
