A Remarkable Year for North Texas Real Estate


6b_blog_FIN2

 

We have great economic news today for all North Texans. Residential real estate sales at the Ebby Halliday Companies, which includes Ebby Halliday Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller & Associates, topped $6.4 billion in 2013. That’s a record in our 68-year history and, remarkably, is a 25 percent increase over 2012.

 

“We are so grateful to our valued clients – both home buyers and sellers – who have entrusted us with one of the largest financial transactions of their lifetime,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies. “Sales records of this magnitude reflect the exceptional performance of our more than 1,500 Associates. We are so pleased to recognize their professional accomplishment and success – they are the reason the Ebby Halliday Companies lead the North Texas real estate market.”

 

Thank you Mary Frances. We couldn’t have said it any better!

North Texas Home Sales Reach Highest Level Ever in 2013

A 17 percent jump in home purchases in 2013 pushed North Texas pre-owned home sales to their highest level ever, according to Steve Brown over at The Dallas Morning News.
Almost 88,500 pre-owned single-family homes were sold in the region in 2013. And median sales prices were up by 10 percent from 2012 levels, according to just-released data from the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University and North Texas Real Estate Information Systems.
Real estate agents say 2013 home sales would have been even stronger if they had more properties to offer consumers. In December, there was a record-low 2.6-month supply of pre-owned houses for sale in North Texas.
Even with the tight supply, agents say 2013 was their best year in memory, with multiple offers for houses and bidding wars for many properties.
“What a fabulous year,” said Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of Ebby Halliday Realtors, in the DMN article. “We had the best year in our company’s 68-year history.”

Start Your Day the Luxury Way


There’s no sugar coating it: getting up in the morning is for the birds. We all know the feeling, when that invasive alarm pulls you from a deep sleep and all you want is to push “snooze.” But alas, a few simple luxuries can make all the difference, so the Ebby Halliday Companies’ partner in luxury home marketing, Luxury Portfolio International, came up with a list of ways to pamper yourself when it’s time to rise and shine. You never know what the day will bring, but adding a little luxury to your morning routine will certainly make getting out of bed that much easier! Your morning sets the tone for the rest of your day, so greet it with open arms and a touch of luxury to maximize enjoyment and success in your life.
