From a real estate analysis it can be gleaned that Keller residents, once they buy, don’t move as quickly or as often as some in other areas of Texas or the United States as a whole. Perhaps one reason can be found in the demographic composition of Keller residents.
More than 28% of Keller’s population is aged 45 or older, with roughly 33% being in the 25-44 age group. One theory could be that a portion of the Millennial population are unable or unwilling to purchase a home yet due in part to student loan debt, failure to save a sufficient down payment or other reasons. In addition, the large percentage of residents in the over-45 demographic – although financially able to buy – typically tend to stay in their homes longer until it’s time to downsize or after they’ve successfully completed paying for their children’s college years. Whatever the reason, the relatively small number of homes for sale in the Keller Texas real estate market can be both a good opportunity and a challenging one.
A more in-depth review of Keller Texas real estate is an interesting exercise to show the typical sales prices of various 3-, 4-, and 5-bedroom homes for sale.

A typical 5-bedroom home in Keller with 3,500 to 4,500 square feet will probably be on the market in the $395,000 to $495,000 range or higher – depending on the overall size of the home, the neighborhood in which it’s located, the age and other considerations.

History of Keller
To fully understand where Keller fits into its rightful place as one of the more popular suburbs in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, it’s important to look at a brief history.
Keller was settled by a group of Missouri homesteaders who eventually built a cotton gin, a grist mill, a blacksmith shop and a few general stores. An all-important railroad depot was added in the 1880s providing a handful of new villages along the railroad. Keller became the largest and most well-known of the settlements – primarily because of the hardwood trees in the area and their proximity to a good water supply, the Trinity River.
Today, Keller is a thriving community largely recognized for its high quality of life, its livability with respect to the various amenities it has to offer its citizens and other municipal measurements used to rank cities of similar size throughout the United States. In 2009, Money magazine cited Keller as #7 in the 10 “Best Places to Live” in America. In 2011 the magazine once again rated Keller as one of the top 100 “Best Places to Live,” this time at #93. As one Keller resident put it, “It wasn’t so much that we fell down in ranking, but some other places in the country stepped up their game.”
Keller is served by the Keller Independent School District, whose enrollment has doubled in the past ten years and is on track to double again during the next decade. This anticipated growth will make Keller the ninth fastest-growing school district in Texas, and among the fastest-growing in the nation.
All these rankings and accolades bode well for Keller Texas real estate. Prospective purchasers relocating or moving into the Dallas-Fort Worth area take notice of the most popular places to live, work and play – and Keller is at or near the top of the list – year after year.
New Homes in Keller Texas
In addition to the existing home market in Keller, there are a large number of new homes being built in the market. Depending on when a home being built is classified as “for sale,” “under construction” or “on the drawing board,” the total number of homes for sale in Keller will likely rise as a result of these newly-constructed homes. In addition, home starts or building permits issued for the purpose of new construction continue to enjoy a fairly good pace.
The Keller Texas real estate market of newly-constructed homes for sale is made up of a variety of floor plans offered by some well-known national home builders. As such, the quality of the new home product is generally high, and purchasers interested in new homes will be happy to note that not only are the homes affordably priced, they are termed good investments by many of the previous new home buyers. Of course, as we always say, in real estate – as in life – there are no guarantees, but the Keller real estate market has enjoyed a higher appreciation rate in the past few years than a number of comparably-sized markets throughout the country.
