Get Ahead of Spring Home Market


List Your Home For Sale Now

 

What was once considered real estate wisdom – the ideal time to list your home for sale is the traditional spring selling season – is no longer true for North Texas homeowners.

 

Year-over-year home sales for January and the low number of homes currently on the market means there’s no reason to wait until spring to list a home for sale. The latest numbers from North Texas Real Estate Information Systems offer quite a compelling case for getting a head start on the potential competition.

 

A few of the highlights from January:

*  The average sales price for a North Texas home is up 8.9% to $229,522.

*  The average list price is up 11.3% to $313,663.

*  The percent of original list price received is up 0.6% to 96.9% of asking price.

*  Finally, the average time a home is on the market is up 4.8%, but still is only 42 days.
