“In Tarrant County, houses are moving,” says Zareen Khan, director of sales at the Cultural District office of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. “The higher the price point, the more inventory there is. Although there is a lot of inventory, the first quarter of 2017 saw double the number of sales of homes over $1 million than the first quarter of 2016.”

That tracks directly with Forbes naming Fort Worth the ninth-hottest housing market in the U.S. this year. The home prices boggle: Fort Worth’s are up 9 percent, year over year for three years, and are predicted to go up 17 percent in the next three years.

Here, enjoy a selection of some significant listings in Fort Worth, exclusively represented by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
