The whole of North Dallas is full of houses with excellent bones. These homes, many built in the 1970s, are just waiting for the right person to come along and revive them. I’ve long been in love with the bold, angular rooflines, vaulted ceilings, and open floor plans of 1970s soft contemporary architecture, and I get quite giddy when I see one that’s received an especially good-looking facelift.
That’s what happened when Ernesto Miranda, Principal of MAGELLAN ARCHITECTS (formally WALKER+MIRANDA), took on 6212 Emeraldwood Place in the Northwood Hills neighborhood. Located just south of Belt Line Road and west of Hillcrest, this neighborhood is chock full of 1070s soft contemporary architecture. If you own one of these…
- Agents sold 8,260 preowned homes in September, a 7% decrease from September 2017.
- Year-to-date existing home sales are now flat with the same period of 2017; a record of over 106,000 existing homes were sold in 2017.
- Higher mortgage rates and years of rising home prices have caused some buyers to retreat from market.
- Inventory of available homes increased 16%, but still represents only a 3-month supply; 6 months is considered a balanced market.
It’s always a welcome change to me when the temperature falls (some) and the leaves begin to change to vivid autumn hues.
As you can see in the enclosed report, it appears our housing market is also changing a little with the season. After several years of an almost…
- Agents sold 10,488 preowned homes in August, a 1% decrease from August 2017.

North Texas continues to be a top destination for in-migration from other states. Job growth is high and home pricing is reasonable compared to metros on the coasts. For these reasons, experts predict that we will continue to experience a healthy, stable housing market. But, residential real estate will always be a localized…
After a decline in June, North Texas existing home sales rose again in July with most of the activity occurring in the $200,000 to $400,000 range. New home starts are up 12% from 2017 as builders respond to the demand and lack of inventory in this price range. On the flip side, demand and price appreciation for higher-priced homes has softened, which makes it a great time to be a move-up buyer. But, the key to achieving your buying or selling goals in any price range is working with a professional who understands the diversities of today's market.
North Texas home sales surged in May, setting new records. But, there are different challenges and opportunities presented by different price points. Homes priced below $200,000 are quickly snapped up by millennials and investors, while owners of homes priced over $600,000 have more competition and less demand. The key to success is to enter the market with the expert guidance of a local real estateprofessional who understands the dynamics affecting your specific home sale or purchase goals.

The Spring Selling Season is Here!
Buyer demand is as strong as ever, and the good news is that the inventory of available homes has increased 8 percent from the same time a year ago.
Even with the increase, however, the supply remains under what is considered a balanced market. Properties that are in a good location, in good condition and are priced accurately are a hot commodity.
