The Real Estate Market, especially in North Texas, has seen unprecedented growth since the Pandemic.

In the last month we have seen:

  • ​Quickly rising mortgage rates with 1/2% increase in just last week
  • High home prices
  • A persistent inventory shortage

However,  DFW house shoppers are not slowing down as per a Dallas Business Journal article. ​​

Below are the stats:

  • DFW remains solidly in double-digit territory and among the nation’s leaders in the number of showings per home, according to an index by ShowingTime, a home touring technology and data firm.
  • The ratio of showings to listings of DFW homes in March was 16:1. That’s the same as it was in March 2021 and down an almost meaningless 2% from February.
  • DFW’s showings ratio is well above the U.S rate of 9:3 showings per home.
  • Nationwide, the number of markets seeing double-digit showings per listing jumped 46% in the past two months as buyer demand continues to outpace slightly rising inventory, according to the Showing Index.
  • In hard numbers, that’s 83 markets with double-digit showings in January of this year, 109 in February and 121 markets in March of this year. ​
Now, this could change in a snap. 
We are seeing hints of a slow down to a much more normal market.
