Dallas Home Sales Stats for September, 2020

September sales of single-family homes in the Dallas area were up 27% from year ago, a new record. This was the fourth consecutive months of double-digit increases in unit sales.  We have never seen a September like this, but then again, we have never seen such upheaval in lifestyles, where everyone is impacted.  Sales were up double-digits in all 17 submarkets I monitor in the list below, ranging from +19% to +62%.  Days on Market are shrinking, also at a double-digit pace, percentage-wise.  Inventory is down 50% from this time last year, which is driving prices higher, with median prices of homes sold up 10% in September.

All this is due to several factors–1) a scramble for more functional living space, including home offices, home-schooling areas, home gyms, often requiring a move to another home; 2) a move to the suburbs with yards for kids and away from city centers, now that 60% of office workers are working from home; 3) kids moving in with their parents; 4) and of course, 2.75% interest rates, which are expected to remain this low for months to come and providing the fuel for this opportunity.

Pending sales in October are up 20%, so this pattern will continue for a while. Those buyers have homes under contract.  But as inventory continues to shrink with demand remaining strong, I’m routing for builders to pour it on.
