What was once considered real estate wisdom – the ideal time to list your home for sale is the traditional spring selling season – is no longer true for North Texas homeowners.
“Year-over-year home sales for December and the relatively low inventory of homes available to purchase indicate there is no reason to wait until spring to list your home for sale,” says Chris Kelly, president and CEO of Ebby Halliday Realtors. “The latest numbers from North Texas Real Estate Information Systems offer a compelling case for those sellers who would like to get a head start on their potential competition.”
- A few of the highlights from the NTREIS numbers for December 2018 vs. December 2017 include:
- The average sales price for a North Texas home rose 2% to $312,223.
- The average days on market was 56 days.
- Finally, new listings were up 0.1%
“These numbers make it clear that the winter of 2019 offers a great climate in which to list a North Texas property for sale,” Kelly says. “Potential sellers should act now to get ahead of the traditional spring market.”
