Homes, especially those that are well kept and located in established neighborhoods, are selling quickly. In 2014 the average days on market was 63. In 2015, the number shrank to 44.

According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, expansion throughout the North Texas economy has lasted 78 months – resulting in North Texas leading the nation in home price gains that are twice the 10-year average increase in DFW.

For buyers, this means that competition for great homes can be a challenge. Homes that are new to the market are receiving multiple offers in a matter of days. Therefore, it’s important to consult an agent with strong neighborhood knowledge and expertise to write a contract that yields a successful home purchase.
