The Dallas-Fort Worth and North Texas residential real estate market continued 2013’s record-setting pace in 2014 with 83,000-plus home sales at a total market value of $20 billion changing ownership.
During the past two years, D-FW-area average home values have increased more than 20 percent. In the same period, the average time it takes to sell a home has decreased to less than 60 days.
The D-FW area continued to lead the nation in job growth in 2014, and the unemployment rate fell to 4.8 percent, remaining well below the national average. At the same time, salaries in the area increased in almost every income sector, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s good news for both the local economy and area residential real estate sales.
It appears 2015 may be another stellar year for the Dallas-Fort Worth and North Texas residential real estate market and for the Ebby Halliday Companies. The recent acquisition of Williams Trew Real Estate by the Ebby Halliday Companies enhances the firm’s presence in Fort Worth and will add significantly to its ability to provide the highest quality of professional real estate services throughout the entire D-FW and North Texas area.
Through November, the Ebby Halliday Companies had participated in 1-of-every-5 D-FW area homes sold through MLS during 2014.

Dallas-Fort Worth home prices were up 5.2 percent in the second quarter from a year ago, according to the latest National Association of Realtors survey.
Nationwide, prices were up 4.4 percent – the smallest such increase since 2012, according to NAR. The biggest year-over-year increases were both in Oregon, with Salem at 24.9 percent and Eugene at 18.1 percent. Prices were up in 71 percent of the markets surveyed.
Analysts have been forecasting a slower rate of home price growth this year. D-FW home price gains have cooled substantially from the 9 percent rise in the first quarter.
“At this slower but healthier rate, homeowners can continue steadily building equity,” says NAR economist Lawrence Yun. “Meanwhile, for buyers, increased supply with moderate price gains is giving them better opportunities to choose.”
Nationwide median sales prices in the second quarter were at a record $212,400. In the D-FW area that number was $191,300.
Dallas-area home prices rose at the slowest rate in 10 months, according to the just-released Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller Home Price Index.
Dallas prices were up 8.6 percent in May from a year ago. Nationwide, prices rose 9.4 percent in the same period.
The lower home price gains had been predicted by analysts who see some moderation after many months of double-digit price increases. Eighteen of the 20 cities Case-Shiller surveys had lower gains in May than in April.
Dallas’ increase was the smallest since July of last year. Earlier this year local home prices were growing at more than 10 percent from a year ago.
The largest annual gains in May were in Las Vegas, 16.9 percent, and San Francisco, 15.4 percent. The smallest increase was in Cleveland, 2.4 percent.
Dallas-area home prices are now at a record level – up more than 9 percent from where they were before the recession. And prices here are almost 25 percent ahead of where they were at the worst of the economic downturn in 2009. Dallas-area prices have been rising in the Case-Shiller study for more than 24 months.
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.
