Dallas Home Sales Stats for January, 2020

January sales numbers are just in, and it was gangbusters.  Overall Dallas area sales were up a whopping 21% vs year ago, following a 15% increase in December.  January is historically the slowest month of the year for closed sales, so this performance is quite a surprise. Unlike previous big sales months, where sales gains are concentrated in the $200’s to $400’s, double-digit percentage gains for single family homes were evident in almost all price ranges above the $200’s, with only the $700’s (+8%) not joining in.  Furthermore, we saw double-digit sales gains across 15 of the 17 submarkets I track.  It’s a broad-based rally enjoyed by buyers of all price levels in all parts of metro area.

What the Realtor community describes as the Park Cities market and neighboring areas of Greenway Parks, Devonshire, Briarwood and Bluffview had an eye-popping 194% increase in sales, almost triple last year’s January, with 50 closings versus 17 last year.

Median sales prices for the overall market were also higher, +8%, a fairly robust number compared to last year’s monthly struggle in the +2-5% range. And these increases in the median price were enjoyed by 14 of 17 submarkets as well.

Pending sales are pointing upward for February, so we could be in for a very strong Spring Market.  More to come.
