Dallas Home Sales Stats for Jan/Feb, 2021

Another interesting start to another interesting year.  What happened to typical and predictable?  Last year in early March we thought home buyers would not find a house to buy due to the lockdown.  This year we wonder if home buyers can find a house to buy given the slim number of homes available.  Of course we ended up with a record sales year last year and wonder if it will repeat.  Well, we were on our way until the ice storm took a big bite out of it. Overall February sales were down 8%, following another double digit increase in January.  While the ice and frozen pipes are thawed, the market inventory in many parts of town is tighter than it’s ever been.

Take a look at the city of Allen.  Homes average 19 days on the market, but there aren’t enough of them–sales were down 40% vs year ago.  Frisco, Rockwall, Cedar Hill and northern Oak Cliff were also down double digits in February.  Some markets with better home availability posted increased February sales.  North Dallas sales doubled, but they were coming off the aftermath of the fall 2019 tornado which depressed sales for several months.

Prices? Very strong, with high demand and scarce supply. Overall, median prices were higher by 14% in Feb and 10% in Jan.  Several submarkets posted gains of 20+% and 30+% for homes sold vs homes sold a year ago.

What’s ahead? Pending sales for March are down 19%, again not a demand issue but a supply problem.  We need more listings, but home sellers also need something to buy, our chicken and egg problem!  Stay tuned; the Spring Market will be most interesting!
