Is Summer a Good Time to Sell a Home in D-FW?


Is Summer a Good Time to Sell a Home in D-FW?


While it’s been warm (well, actually quite hot) for a while in North Texas, summer “officially” starts today. With sales prices up and few homes for sale, this summer offers homeowners ideal conditions to sell a home in Dallas-Fort Worth. Competition among buyers is heated and multiple offers are common.


Just how hot is the North Texas housing market? Consider that in the past 12 months:


* The average days a home is on the market is down 13.6% to only 38 days.


*  The median sales price is up 8.5%.


*  The number of homes for sale is also down 8.5%, meaning you’ll have less competition.


Simply put: If you’re considering listing your home, this summer offers an extraordinary opportunity. Find your Realtor at
