Dallas-area Home Prices Up Almost 10 Percent

 

Dallas-area home prices were up by more than 9.5 percent in the latest housing report from CoreLogic. The only major market in the report with a bigger gain was Denver, where home prices were up 10.9 percent year-over-year.

 

“Home prices reached the bottom five years ago, and since then have appreciated almost 40 percent,” Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic, said in the report. “The highest appreciation was in the West, where prices continue to increase at double-digit rates.”

 

North Texas home prices are at record levels. Dallas-Fort Worth topped other major Texas cities for both first-quarter annual price increases and sales, according to a new report by the Texas Association of Realtors.

Home Sales Heat Up

Existing-home sales rose strongly in May and inventory gains continued to help moderate price growth, according to a just-released report from the National Association of Realtors. All four regions of the country experienced sales gains compared to a month earlier.

 

Nationwide, existing home sales rose 4.9 percent in May, but remain 5 percent below May 2013. The 4.9 percent month-over-month gain in May was the highest monthly rise since August 2011. Closer to home, in the country’s South region, sales rose 5.7 percent in May, and were down only 0.5 percent from this time last year.

 

“Home buyers are benefiting from slower price growth due to the much-needed, rising inventory levels seen since the beginning of the year,” says Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist. “Moreover, sales were helped by the improving job market and the temporary but slight decline in mortgage rates.”

 

The median existing-home price nationwide in May was $213,400, which is 5.1 percent above May 2013. In the South region, the median price was $184,800.

Dallas-Area Home Prices Rise

Dallas-area home prices were up 11 percent in March from a year earlier, according to a report released today by CoreLogic Inc.

 

The Dallas-area gain was about the same as the 11.1 percent nationwide increase. A shortage of homes for sale in many markets – including North Texas – is fueling home price gains.

 

The biggest annual home price increases in March were in Riverside, Calif., 20.9 percent, and Los Angeles, 17.1 percent.

 

“Colorado, the District of Columbia, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming all surpassed their previous home price peaks in March 2014,” according to the report. “In all, 23 states and the District of Columbia are at or within 10 percent of their peak home price appreciation.”
