Dallas-Fort Worth Housing Market Sizzling Hot


 

Dallas-Fort Worth Housing Market Sizzles

 

Wow, it sure did get hot fast this year! Summer has barely unfurled, but the North Texas residential real estate market is already delivering blistering sales in June. In Dallas-Fort Worth, homes are moving off the market 13.6 percent faster than they did at this time last year as prices continue to hit new record highs.

 

The average home sales price in North Texas in May was $286,200, 6.3% higher than one year ago. However, much of the effect of higher prices is being offset by mortgage rates that are the lowest we’ve seen in three years.

Buying or Selling a Home is Life-Changing


Buying or Selling a Home is Life-Changing

 

Ebby Halliday, the founder of Ebby Halliday Realtors and an icon in the real estate industry, famously said, “The Constitution of the United States guarantees your right to own the land under your feet, to sell, and to develop it. Whether you want to become an investor, a real estate agent, or a homeowner, real estate is the basis of the American dream.”

 

Ebby passed away in late 2015 at the age of 104 but that sentiment is still central to our core mission of transforming and elevating the home buying and selling process into the wonderful life-changing experience it can be.

 

Most of our clients don’t buy and sell homes very often. It’s relatively unknown territory to them. But it’s our native territory, since 1945. We know the landscape. There’s no trail we haven’t been down before. We are here to help you fully experience one of the biggest, most joyful events of your life.

 

We’re not going to sugarcoat it: Buying or selling a home can be complicated, sometimes very complicated. Fortunately an Ebby Halliday Realtor is here to guide you through the process.

 

It’s also true that in today’s hyper-competitive North Texas real estate market it’s more important than ever to choose the right agent for your needs. To get started, visit ebby.com.
