Dallas Market Reports From CoreLogic, Case-Schiller, and Local Market Monitor Show Record Increases, Optimistic Forecasts

Sold Home

It’s Friday, so we want to give you some good news that should hold you over through the weekend’s open houses, while you hover expectantly over the fax machine waiting for a seller to accept your client’s offer. First, the Dallas real estate market has fully recovered to pre-recession levels. Second, foreclosure inventory in Texas is down 0.4 percent from a year ago. Third, home prices are expected to increase 4 percent over the next three years.

So, if you’ve got clients who cannot seem to commit to a property, just show them these numbers from the most recent S&P/Case-Schiller report, which shows that home prices are on the upswing, meaning that now is the time to buy that dream home. In the 20-city Case-Schiller Home Price Index composite, every single market showed gains. Incredible!

And according to the June Local Market Monitor report, rents are creeping up, meaning that in this low-risk market environment, it’s time to buy. And if you want to get a good rate on your mortgage, now’s the time to get pre-approved, too, before banks start hiking rates again.

What other signs of economic recovery are you seeing?
