Home Sales Climbing in North Texas

For the first time in nearly five years, homes sales in the Dallas area are rising! The Dallas Morning News reports that pre-owned home sales in 2011 were up in the majority of Dallas neighborhoods. And, home sales should continue to climb modestly in 2012.

Mary Frances attributes affordable mortgage rates as one reason for the improving housing market:
