Before welcoming the New Year, sellers get serious about closing on a deal in time to enjoy end-of-year tax advantages. This is typically the time when smart sellers in the Park Cities apply price reductions to motivate and attract the right buyer.
For buyers, these price reductions could not come at a better time. According to the new Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller Home Price Index, Dallas-area home prices are at an all-time high. The report finds an average increase of 9 percent in prices through the first nine months of 2015. That’s nearly double the nationwide gain and the fourth highest increase out of all major markets Case-Shiller tracked.
According to D.W. Skelton, local Dallas real estate appraiser, there is a high demand for homes that fall below the $1 million price point. It is an appealing price for all lifestyles, from move-up buyers, to downsizers, to buyers that are relocating.
At Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, the in-house relocation team introduces newcomers to neighborhoods and homes in DFW, while assisting sellers moving out of North Texas. These leading agents know the neighborhood data that impacts the pricing and marketing of your investment.
