Dallas Home Sales Stats for November, 2020

November home sales for the greater Dallas area just clocked in with yet another amazing month of results–sales of single family homes up 23% and median sales prices up 13% vs year ago November.  Sales of condos and townhomes were also 27% higher with median sales prices up 12%.  I could copy and paste my October letter and go to lunch!  The same cause and effect remains–record low interest rates, a desire for a more preferred location given the ability to work from home, and the need by some for more work and play spaces, for school-age kids and adults alike. In fact, there is a growing tendency for larger homes, after years of downsizing.

Jerome Powell, chairman of the Federal Reserve, is on record for stating he sees no current reason to raise interest rates until the end of 2023.  Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors, sees no foreseeable reduction in demand for new home purchases next year. Indeed, our pending sales are up 18% going into December.  Nationwide, fully a third of home purchases is from millennials and first-time home buyers, and vacancies are beginning to build in apartment rental buildings. Home buyers will need to be on their toes, as new listings were down 6% in November, and active listings down a staggering 55%. Lower inventory and higher demand translates easily to reduced days on market, multiple offers and higher prices, hence this month’s 13% increase in the median price of homes sold.  It’s a strong and healthy market and comes with its own set of challenges.

And just for “fun”, since most of us will be paying our property taxes this month, I included a table with the tax rates for all the cities in Dallas, Collin, Tarrant and Denton counties. The link is at the end of this letter. See how your city compares!

Enjoy your holidays, rest up and be ready for more surprises (non yet predicted!) in the new year.
