If you live in Midland (or follow Texas real estate), it comes as no surprise — economists are saying that the market is hot, hot, hot.

How hot? Last month, the city was at the top of Realtor.com’s Hottest Real Estate Markets rankings (out of 300 metro areas) — beating out the Boston area by a full half point and third place finisher San Francisco by almost two points.

Realtor.com arrives at its “hotness” scale by using several metrics, including the city’s home inventory and price growth.

We have more details — including where Dallas-Fort Worth placed on the scale — over on MidlandDirt.com.

North Hill Park is one of the best neighborhoods in Midland and we’ve found a clean slate of a home right in the middle of it.

The house at 1400 Country Club Dr. has location beyond belief, near West Gold Course Road and North Garfield Street. North Hill Park is in Old Midland near University Annex, Grafaland, and Westover Place, other desirable areas in the city. This home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, one half bath, and 4,163 square feet on two stories, built in 2001.
