The Latest Trends in the Dallas Real Estate Market

So far this year, things in the real estate market have been going gangbusters. Remember, the real estate market really started to turn around in the second quarter of 2012, so we have had four great years in Dallas Fort Worth. In fact, just this past June we were ranked as the third hottest market in the United States.

For the pre-owned, residential resale market, the median price is $205,000 - a 9.3% increase from this time last year. That number gets even higher when you factor in townhomes, condos, and new construction, but most people tend to focus on the resale market.

Whether you are buying or selling a home, you should be concerned about the days on market. The average days on market gives you an idea of how long it will take to sell your home or how quickly you need to make an offer. Right now, the average days on market for the resale market is 38 days, a 30% drop from this time last year. The median number is way less than that, at 16 days on market. That means half of all properties go under contract within two weeks of hitting the market.

There are more buyers than
there are homes on the market.

Closed sales for the year are up by about 7%. This year, 89,000 homes have been sold.

The supply of homes on the market is a key economic indicator of how the market is doing. Right now, we have an inventory of 2.5 months, which is a 14% drop year over year. If you’re a buyer and you’ve been wondering why it’s so hard to find a home, it’s because of that low inventory level. Ultimately, there are more buyers than there are homes on the market.

If you’re thinking of buying a home, you need to get connected with a really good agent who knows the market and can set up the right offer for the seller. We even have access to off-market properties so that you have a few more options to look at in this hot seller’s market.
