Dallas Home Sales Stats for March/April 2021

Have you been to a silent auction lately?   If you are in the market to buy a home, you are participating in one now.  There is one big difference though.  At your traditional holiday fund-raiser, you get to see the latest, highest posted price before the gavel falls.  In the real estate practice, the home-buying process is more mysterious, with guesswork on pricing and terms and careful consideration of appraised value and cash and loan amounts.  But buyers and seller are making this auction-like process work–at an amazingly quick pace.

The April data, which just became available, shows area sales up 28% year over year and the median price of homes sold up a whopping 18%.  Of course, we were all at home in April of a year ago, masked and learning the intricacies of Zoom.  So the 28% result comes with an asterisk.The median prices, days on market and months inventory numbers are more real in that sense and may warrant more of your attention.  For example, we see as little as two weeks average days on market in Carrollton-Farmers Branch, Coppell, and close to that in Frisco, Allen, and Richardson.  Sales-by-price-point, on your chart below, show just a fraction of a month in inventory. Two months inventory used to be nuts, and six months inventory was common not that long ago.

So, what’s next?  With life getting rapidly back to normal, and people longing for the summer travel and family trips they missed last year, I think we’ll see a gradual relaxation in the home shopping hysteria as buyers, sellers, and agents take some time off.  We will see.  We are still firmly entrenched in the Spring Market.  But…wouldn’t it be nice to pay just full price, or for heaven’s sake, negotiate off the asking price?  A healthy, balanced market would be a thing of beauty!
