Burleson recording rise in new home construction

The city of Burleson has released a report saying 360 homes were built in the city last year, a 25 percent increase from 2012. But more than 400 homes are expected to be built this year, the report said.

The average value was $192,000, up 30 percent from 2012, and average size was 2,450 square feet. Over half of the new homes were over 3,000 square feet, more than twice the percentage in 2012.

Mistletoe Hill, Shannon Creek, West Bend South, and Hidden Vistas were the most active neighborhoods.
