2016 is a Record Year For Real Estate in North Texas

North Texas is experiencing a surge in home real estate prices, Dallas News reports. The area of the state witnessed the average price for a home soar up 12 percent in September. That figure marks the biggest year-over-year 2016 gain in what has turned out to be a record year for the housing market.

The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University released new data on median housing prices for 2016. According to the report, median sales prices of preowned, single-family homes rose to $225,000. North Texas Real Estate Information Systems further verified the information. Prices are still 10 percent higher in the third quarter than they were during the same period in 2015.

Some of these homes in Dallas and Fort Worth have seen a 40+ percent price increase in only five years. Furthermore, this jump in price has lead to less sales. Housing sales suffered by 11 percent in September alone.

The first nine months of 2016 saw a record 78,154 houses sold by agents in the market. Despite lower sales, more than 9,500 preowned, single-family houses were sold by real estate agents in Dallas-Fort Worth in September. As a result of increased sales, housing inventory in the area has fallen and remained at very low levels. Compared to September 2015, the number of houses in North Texas listed for sale by real estate agents decreased by 3 percent. This is interesting considering that in this area, it takes less than 40 days on average to sell a house.

Dallas Siding Contractor

Siding Contractor

Are you in need of a professional exterior siding contractor in the Dallas, TX region? Contact the professionals at Creative Construction & Remodeling.

Siding is crucial component of exterior home design. After a while, however, the exterior layer on your home will begin to wear. It may even need to be replaced. If it is 10 more years old, it might be time to call a siding contractor.

Signs that your home’s exterior siding needs repair or replacement:

  • Warped / broken panels. Panels that are no longer flat against the residence no longer provide adequate protection from outdoor elements such as wind, rain and snow. Age and wear-and-tear can cause panels to become damaged or bent.
  • Mold/mildew. If there is mold or mildew growing, or if you can smell it growing on the outside of your house, excess moisture in that particular area may be to blame. Loose or bent material can allow water to accumulate, causing water damage. This impacts the integrity of the structure and can cause more serious problems.
  • Aesthetic issues. Old or worn material can cause the outer appearance of your residence to suffer, even if it is not actually damaged. Dented or scuffed siding impacts the overall aesthetic quality of the structure’s design. A dull gray, for example, looks many shades darker next to a pure white panel. An upgrade will reinvigorate your home’s design.

Having an intact and reliable exterior is crucial to the appearance and structural integrity of your home. It will keep your house safe from the elements, aids in keeping warm or cool air in the home and will impress your neighbors.
