Dallas Home Sales Stats for Sept and Oct, 2021

Dallas area home sales in September and October were lower than year ago levels, marked by a severe shortage of inventory in lower price points. November data will be available next week, and we’ll likely see lower sales due to the same issue. With the median home price in the Metroplex around $350,000, and with an even distribution of sales, we would expect half our total sales would be equal to $350,000 or more. Instead, 60% of sales were above this midpoint, which will continue to nudge the median higher. On the chart below, home sales in the $200’s have fallen 23% through October, consistent with results in all the lower price points. Home sales are up double digits in all price points $300K and above (see the chart below), but not enough to put us in the black. Historically, the fall months see less sales activity, punctuated by our shift in attention to the holidays, new school year, and a host of distractions.

But the encouraging news is that median sales prices for the overall market are still showing robust gains year over year, up 26% in September and 18% in October. The two exceptions in the submarkets I track are East Dallas in September and Park Cities/Bluffview in October. And inventory levels are still dropping, to 3-6 weeks in most submarkets.
