Dallas Home Sales Stats for December, 2020 and Year End

Where to begin.  Packed with elections outcome uncertainty, long awaited but on-schedule vaccine approval and delivery, holiday planning, shopping, decorating and travel, there were just a few distraction to the usual routine.  Despite all the goings-on, North Texans managed to find time to buy homes.  And we did so in the face of record low inventory and rising prices.  Dallas area sales in December rose 18% over last year’s December and finished 2020 10% higher than 2019.  This was an amazing result given virus lockdowns in the spring that torpedoed the Spring Market.  Real estate activity was declared “non-essential”, halting open houses and postponing closings.  Last March, no one would have guessed the year would produce a record 119,121 single family home sales in our several counties area.  But we did it.

I have touched on a lot of the reasons why–mostly virus related–with a desire for a more functional home, a desire for lower density living, and the discovery of the convenience and ability for many to reduce or eliminate the commute to the office.  Record low mortgage rates didn’t hurt either.

Enjoy looking at your neighborhood’s results below.  The stat that most impresses me is that sales of homes in the various price points of $500K and higher were up over 30% from last year.  And the two lower price points of $300K and $400K were up over 20%.  It was some kind of year.
