Your Home Free – Home Sales Soaring In Dallas-Fort Worth!

dallas-fort worth

While home sales have been in somewhat of a slump in North Texas in recent months, it seems things are turning around. This is great news for sellers, but perhaps not so great news for buyers who could potentially find themselves up against a bit more competition when looking for a home in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. So, what’s up?

The Dallas Morning News recently reported that in May, sales volumes were up in several counties in the DFW metro, according to the MetroTex Association of Realtors. The largest increase so far in 2019, increases of 6% were seen across the region when compared to the same time period last year.

The top county for home sales in May was Tarrant County, where 2,779 homes were sold. Fort Worth is located in Tarrant County, along with Arlington, Keller, Colleyville and many others.

While Tarrant County saw the most home sales, the largest increase in home sales was in Rockwall County, where sales increased nearly 7% over the same time period in 2018.

Median home sale price in May for Tarrant County was $246,000, while median prices increased during that time period by 4.8% in Rockwall County. Dallas County experienced the biggest gain in number of homes for sale, and came in second in sales volume with a 5.1% year-over-year gain in home purchases. Additionally, Dallas County was where local agents saw a 30% increase in number of listings over May of last year. Cities in Dallas County include Farmers Branch, Highland Park, Irving, Garland and Sunnyvale, to name a few.

This is welcome news not only for those looking for a home in North Texas, but for builders and real estate agents as well!

    Tara helped us sell our home and navigate the purchase of a new build in Aubrey. She was very knowledgeable and helpful at every step of the way. She helped me feel confident and supported during an overwhelming process.

    Kelly and Lindsay put our house on the market on a Friday and by Monday morning we had a FULL PRICE offer. Not only did we get offered full price but no repairs were asked for and we closed in less than a month. The Sokora team helped us not only prepare for this process but walked us through every...

    I have bought and sold twice with team Nelson and am continuously impressed with their service, knowledge and personable approach. I appreciate the experience they bring and value they give to me as a seller and a buyer! I wouldn’t use anyone other than team Nelson! Thank you!

    My husband and I were relocating to Colorado and were very unfamiliar with Denver. We're thrilled we got in touch with Zac because he made the process the easiest it could ever possibly be. We've purchased 2 homes in California before, and this was the easiest process. He was amazing with learning what we were looking for in a home, visiting the homes and sending us video walk-through tours while we were still out of town, and helped us find & close on the home of our dreams! Throughout the process, he was extremely responsive & easy to get ahold of, thoroughly answered all of our questions, and provided us great advice. The rest of his team that help with all the escrow and closing logistics were equally as helpful. On top of it all, they are just good, friendly people that are a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them!!
