Lake house in Heath TX

Our 90-day analysis focuses on the real estate market across seven key regions in Texas: Collin, Dallas, Henderson, Hunt, Kaufman, Rains, and Rockwall Counties. This comprehensive overview provides insights into the current trends and dynamics affecting these areas, highlighting key metrics such as total closed sales, pending sales, active listings, inventory levels, and average days on market.


Understanding these numbers is crucial if you are planning or needing to list your home. Knowing the potential amount of time it may take to sell is important for planning purposes.

Analysis and Implications

The real estate market in the covered areas (Collin, Dallas, Henderson, Hunt, Kaufman, Rains, Rockwall counties) is showing significant activity with rising trends in sales and pending sales, as well as a moderate increase in active listings. The average days on market are also increasing, indicating properties are taking slightly longer to sell.


Potential Shift Towards a Buyer’s Market

Months of Inventory:

With an average of 4 months of inventory, the market is approaching a threshold. Typically, 6 months of inventory is considered a balanced market, where neither buyers nor sellers have a distinct advantage. Less than 6 months indicates a seller’s market, while more than 6 months suggests a buyer’s market.


Increasing Days on Market:

The 5% increase in the average days on market suggests that homes are not selling as quickly, which can be a sign that the market may be shifting.


What This Means:

A shift towards a buyer's market means that buyers might have more negotiating power, potentially leading to lower prices and more favorable terms. More inventory and longer days on market can give buyers a greater selection of homes and more time to make decisions.


The current trends suggest that while the market is active, there are signs it might be transitioning towards a buyer’s market. This shift could offer more opportunities and advantages for buyers in the near future. Keeping an eye on these trends will be crucial for both buyers and sellers to make informed decisions.
