D-Fw Market Likely To Emerge Healthy From Covid-19

Texas’ largest markets, including Dallas-Fort Worth, are among the U.S. metros least likely to experience a major housing shakeout from the COVID-19 pandemic, according to new research reported here by Dallas Morning News real estate reporter Steve Brown.

 

The research, by analysts at Attom Data Solutions, found housing markets that will be most negatively affected by COVID-19 and the resulting economic challenges are mostly in the Northeast and Florida.

 

Researchers looked at almost 500 home markets around the country and rated them based on foreclosures, homeowner equity, wages and other factors.

 

“It’s too early to tell how much effect the coronavirus fallout will have on different housing markets around the country,” said Attom Data’s Todd Teta. “But the impact is likely to be significant from region to region and county to county. What we’ve done is spotlight areas that appear to be more or less at risk based on several important factors.

 

“From that analysis, it looks like the Northeast is more at risk than other areas,” Teta said. “As we head into the spring homebuying season, the next few months will reveal how severe the impact will be.”

 

Attom Data estimates the major housing markets most at risk from the virus include four in New Jersey and the New York area, three in Connecticut and 10 from Florida. Only one was in California, and none were located in other West Coast states.

 

“Texas has 10 of the 50 least vulnerable counties from among the 483 included in the report, followed by Wisconsin with seven and Colorado with five,” according to Attom Data. “The 10 counties in Texas include three in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro (Dallas, Collin and Tarrant counties).

8 Indoor Activities For Rainy Days


Loft kitchen design

When the weather is gloomy, it presents the perfect day to stay inside. Here are eight ways to combat boredom and make the most of your rainy day at home.

1. Must-See Movies
Cross movies off your “must-see” list on a rainy day. Bonus points if you make some popcorn!

2. Make a Fort
Move some furniture and get creative draping sheets and blankets in a room to create a cozy fort in the comfort of your own home. Add some pillows and snuggly blankets on the inside and you have the perfect place to hide away from a rainy day.

3. Cook or Bake
Try out a new recipe like cookies or cupcakes, or make a yummy soup or stew. Your home will be filled with aromas of whatever you create!

4. Cool Crafts
If you know the upcoming weather forecast is less than ideal, prepare in advance by getting materials together for the craft you’ve been dying to try.

5. Play Some Games
Pull out some of your favorite board or card games to keep the whole family entertained. Or, play hide-and-seek or create a scavenger hunt for some old-fashioned fun.

6. Spa Day
Give yourself an ultimate spa day and feel refreshed even if it’s gloomy outside. Light some candles and take a bath, put on a facemask, and paint your nails. Massage some lotion onto your feet and slip on fuzzy socks until all the moisture is absorbed.

7. Organize Your Life
Get ahead on a slow day by tackling some of those to-dos piling up. From organizing your closet or family recipes to finally putting those old photos in an album, there are plenty of tasks that are perfect when it’s raining outside.

8. Read a Book
With life’s daily commitments, it can be difficult to make progress on your latest book. Take advantage of a less-than-sunny day and finish that book you’ve had on your nightstand for ages!

North Texas Experiences Double-Digit Home Sales Increases


Sunny day illuminating a house with many windows

What’s the latest news in the North Texas housing market? Real Estate Editor Steve Brown of The Dallas Morning News provides a very encouraging picture of the early spring market in his March 9 article titled “February was another big month for North Texas home sales.”

Brown reports North Texas home sales jumped 10% in February — the second month in a row of double-digit percentage sales increases from a year ago.

Area real estate agents sold 7,574 single-family homes last month, the largest total ever for the month of February.

So far in 2020, home sales in North Texas are up 14% from the first two months of 2019, according to data from the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University and the North Texas Real Estate Information Systems.

Near record low mortgage rates have given homebuyers a boost, causing property purchases to surge in the past few months.

Prices are up, too. The median home sales price in North Texas was $266,620, up 7% year over year.

The sharp increase in sales caused a drop in home inventory. At the end of February, 20,723 single-family homes were listed for sale with real estate agents in the more two dozen counties included in the survey. That’s a decline of 5% in the number of homes on the market in the area.

With mortgage rates so low, the outlook for home sales in the coming months is strong.

The number of pending home sales in the area — properties under contract but not yet purchased — was up 15% in February from a year ago.

“The stunning decline in mortgage rates has stimulated both the new and existing housing market thus far in 2020,” said Ted Wilson, principal with Dallas-based housing analyst Residential Strategies. “Inexpensive financing costs will remain a stimulus for housing — and it is likely that rates will remain very low for some time.”
