Get a Head Start on the Spring Market


Home and healthy front yard during late spring season

 

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 2020 vs. January 2019 include:

 

*  The average sales price for a North Texas home rose 8.9%.

 

*  The average percent of original list price sellers received was 95.1%

 

*  The average days on market was 61 days.

 

“These numbers make it clear that the winter of 2020 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.”

Weekend Getaways: Waco


Sunrise on the Brazos

 

Known for the Baylor Bears, the Mammoth National Monument and far more than Magnolia, Waco is packed with friendly folks and the allure of farmhouse chic aesthetics. Only a short hour-and-a-half drive from Dallas-Fort Worth, the city packs small-town charm with a vibrant community of local businesses, a delightfully accessible downtown and no shortage of delicious fare and fun things to do.

 

Dine

milo all day

When you’re ready for lunch (or brunch!), look no further than Milo All Day, inspired Southern fare featuring seasonal ingredients from farms across Texas. The amazing patio makes for the perfect meal al fresco, and the laid-back atmosphere inside is as enticing as the flavorful farm-to-table dishes. This will be one of those meals you want to document for Instagram before taking your first bite.

 

Play

Wildland supply co

Another must on the list is Wildland Supply Co., a fun-yet-sophisticated clothing and lifestyle shop offering a modern, hand-selected collection of apparel and objects from independent designers and small-biz artisans. You’ll love the products and the aesthetic, almost as much as the stylish owner and friendly staff.

 

Stay

elegant container home

While there is no shortage of private rental options available in Waco, some properties offer a more unique stay than most. Whether you want to explore container living (shipping containers reimagined into tiny homes) or rent an entire home for the family (like a popular lakefront farmhouse 10 minutes from everything), vacation rentals provide the comforts of home with the adventure of exploring a new city.
