Dallas Home Sales Stats for August, 2021

“August 2021 dollar volume of North Texas existing home resales had its 4th highest month in history with transaction volume of $4.72 billion. August 2021’s dollar volume was up 13% when compared to August 2020 (5% fewer transactions but 19% higher average sales price). Inventory for the entire NTREIS region remains very tight at 1.1 months supply as of 8/31/21.” – Britt Fair, President/Owner of Fair Texas Title

Britt is exactly right.  August has typically been a rather moribund month, but that changed last year, following the Spring lockdowns.  Locally, people are still adjusting to lifestyle changes, especially the functionality of their homes and for some the freedom to live away from their workplace.  And they are still taking advantage of superb mortgage rates (are we spoiled yet?).  On a larger scale, companies (i.e. jobs) are relocating to Texas and especially the DFW area from states with higher costs of living and greater regulation of all kinds.  So the people who study these trends for a living are telling us to expect demand for homes to continue to outstrip supply.

Still, we are detecting a little more price negotiation than what we saw earlier this year along with a few price reductions.  The days-on-market are up a smidgeon in some markets as well.  Without a shift in economic or virus policy, we should continue to see housing demand at these levels.

Below are the results for a sample of submarkets I follow.  Enjoy!
