Is Our Market Hotter Than It’s Ever Been?

The DFW real estate market is the hottest it’s ever been. All across the area, sales are up and inventory is down.

What’s happening in the DFW area market right now?

In short, everything still looks to be extremely positive. How long is it going to continue to be this good? We don’t know. We don’t own a crystal ball, and our market doesn’t move as fast as other markets. We have a three-to-six month lag before we really see how things are going to react in the market.

Here are some key figures to know that paint a clear picture of where we’re at and how far we’ve come since this time last year:

  • The median sales price has risen 9.7% to $220,000. 
  • The average days on market has dropped 19.2% to 42 days.
  • Closed sales have risen 4.9%. That’s 107,686 residential home sales and roughly 215,000 transactions in total. 
  • The level of inventory has dropped 10% from 5.5 months to 2.7 months. The lower this number is, the hotter the market usually is.
  • New listings are up 2.9%. In the entire MLS, there were 137,847 new listings. Since only about 108,000 properties sold, though, that means 22% of the properties that came on the market failed to sell.

We’re in the hottest market the DFW area has ever seen.

So, even though we’re in the hottest market the DFW area has ever seen, there’s no guarantee that your home will sell. You still need to prepare it right, market it correctly, and set the right price for it.
