Homes prices in the DFW are at an all-time high caused by strong demand, limited inventory and terrific economic growth in the DFW area.In April the median home price climbed 2.4% to $154,178 in Fort Worth. Home sales across North Texas were 4% greater than last year during the same time period.According the Case-Shiller, local home prices are 15% above where they were at the peak before the bust a few years ago. It's simply supply and demand. With that all being said, some folks are predicting we are in a bubble which will burst in a few months. I disagree with that prediction. I don't believe we will have a bust but maybe a slow down of the increasing prices but the direction of the market will be up for several years to come. We currently are at the level of construction costs and as...

You look and find a great home, write an offer then you find out there are multiple offers. You've offered full price or maybe you've offered slightly less because you want to get a "good deal".

Right now is a great time to be a Fort Worth home seller. Here are the Top 5 Reasons To Sell Your Home Now.1) Greatest Number Of BuyersTypically from May 1st to the end of July is when the highest number of buyers are looking to buy a home in Fort Worth.2) Current Home Inventory is LowThe current number of available homes for sale in all price ranges are at the lowest level in years.3) Interest Rates Are RisingJust in the last week interest rates have started to rise.

We have customers visiting our website and while speaking with them they will be hesitant about buying home in the near future. For one reason or another they are just testing the waters and we understand that. This article hopefully, will help uncover 5 reasons why it's a wise decision to buy now. 1) Market Direction and Momentum:No one would argue that the direction of the market is moving upward. For desirable neighborhoods in desirable school districts it's the norm for homes to be appreciating at 1% per month. Think about it. On a $200,000 home that's $2000 per month increase in value or cost if you haven't already purchased your home. So if you want to wait 6 months to buy, effectively you'll pay $12,000 more for the same house.2) Low Interest Rates:Interest rates are still at his...
