Positive Signs Continue for North Texas Housing Market

Today’s Dallas Morning News reports Dallas-area home prices were up for the first time in more than 18 months. Real estate editor Steve Brown writes in today’s Morning News that Dallas prices rose 1.5 percent in March from a year ago, according to Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller Home Price Index.

Dallas was one of seven U.S. markets in the closely watched monthly survey that saw year-over-year price gains. The other markets are Charlotte, Denver, Detroit, Miami, Minneapolis and Phoenix.

In addition, Brown reports, preowned home sales prices in North Texas are up 6 percent so far this year compared to the same period of 2011 – and preowned home sales were up 14 percent in the first four months of the year.

All of this confirms what Dave Perry-Miller agents across North Texas have been telling us for some time now: There has never been a better time to buy or sell a home in Dallas-Fort Worth.
