Dallas Texas Market Statistics September 2012 Market Statistics

Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate Dallas TREC# 0544069

Dallas home owners have been fortunate that home values in the Dallas area has remained relatively stable over the last few years.The Dallas real estate market did not experience the significant increase in homes values found in other metropolitan areas, nor did it experience the sharp downturn in values.

Many Dallas area neighborhoods held their value during the economic downturn. Other neighborhoods dropped in value only a few percentage points. Neighborhoods that experienced a significant number of tear downs and new builds prior to the economic downturn were impacted to the greatest degree, as their property values were driven by land prices. When builders had no money and no clients, land prices dropped in these neighborhoods causing them to see a more significant drop in home values.That said, the drop in value did not hold a candle to the drop in prices in other parts of the country.

As a Realtor who follows the Dallas area real estate market as a whole, it is interesting to watch neighborhood market trends. Buyers seek the most value for their dollar. For that reason, they gravitate toward neighborhoods and properties perceived to be undervalued.

Excellent report.  It is a great time for home buyers to take advantage of the record low mortgage interest rates.

We are blessed in that sense too. While other market prices zoom really high or fall really, REALLY low... we just seem to steadily plod along. I like it that way!

Sharon - the part I like best is that we have recouped 1/3 of what was lost. For guys like me who are older than dirt, we have seen these cycles before.
