Lake Ray Hubbard Housing Market - May 2017

If you're wondering how the Housing Market is doing, you're not alone ... it's actually a question I get a lot! Ladies and Gentlemen, the summer Housing Market is in full swing and no matter where you live in the Dallas-Ft Worth Metroplex, the market is already better than last year!  

So what do I mean by that? Prices are steadily increasing and Houses are going to Contract quicker! This is likely due to the increase of business moving their headquarters here, thus bringing more Buyers. If you're contemplating SELLING your home, now really is a great time! As a BUYER, the Mortgage Rates are still relatively low and requirements are loosening up a bit.

Below are the Numbers of how the Housing Market was May for cities in the Lake Ray Hubbard and surrounding area.
