Dallas Home Sales Stats for May, 2020

As anticipated, Dallas area home sales in May got hammered.  For the 22-county area, sales were down 25% and the median price of home sold was down 1%, our first dip into negative territory in quite a while.  For the first five months of the year, sales were down 6% with a median sales price up 3%.  For the three month period beginning with the shutdown on March 16th and running to June 19th, my office closed 502 sales for $435 million.  While this number is still lower than in 2019, the market is still quite alive.

The few highlights include higher median sales prices in Frisco, Southlake, Uptown, Midway Hollow, Cedar Hill and Rockwall.  The low inventory levels are providing price support in the $200K to $900K price points for single family homes.  Condo and townhome inventories are a bit higher, reaching 10 months or more in the $700K+ price points.

As we all grow more accustomed to working in this environment, we will see more showings and more contracts, as the extended version of Spring Market 2020 continues.
