February 2019


Year-over-year home sales for January and the relatively low inventory of homes available to purchase indicate there is no reason to wait until spring to list your home for sale, according to Chris Kelly, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies. “The latest numbers from North Texas Real Estate Information Systems offer a compelling case for sellers who would like to get a head start on their potential competition,” Kelly says.  A few of the highlights from the NTREIS numbers for January 2019 vs. January 2018 include:

*  The average sales price for a North Texas home rose 2.8%.
*  The average percent of original list price sellers received was 95.2%
*  The average days on market was 57 days.

“These numbers make it clear that the winter of 2019 offers a great climate in which to list a North Texas property for sale,” Kelly says. “Potential sellers should act now to get ahead of the traditional spring market.”

Texas Keeps Growing!

According to a U S Census Bureau report released this month (1/18), Texas' population grew by the largest number of any state in the country, as it has for every year this decade". In fact, Texas' population grew by more than 1,000 people a day during 2017 and Census demographers predict that Texas "will remain atop the growth rankings for the next 15 years, or so".

With much of this population growth centered in DFW and North Texas area, it's not surprising that the real estate market is growing as well.North Texas offers affordable new home construction and now that the holidays are over a growing number of existing home sales are coming on the market.
