REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE | EAST DALLAS | 2ND QUARTER YTD 2021 VS 2ND QUARTER YTD 2020

Hi,

Welcome to my 2nd Quarter 2021 Real Estate Market Report.  This is for 1/1/2021 thru 6/30/2021 compared with the same period 2020.

On 1/11/2021 FNMA (Fannie Mae) came out with the following predictions: At the end of 2021 GDP of 5.1% for the year with an especially strong 3rd and 4th quarter.  Unemployment to be below 4% by the 4th quarter of 2022. Housing prices to increase nationally 3.7% in 2021 with 30 year fixed rate mortgages around 2.8%.

Local market trends matter more than ever and are driving what is happening by price point, state, city and the neighborhood you live in.

So let’s look at some positives for our local market, showings continue to be strong.

Listings dropped at the end of April 2020 and continue to be down 57.6% compared to the same period through June 2020 (months supply of inventory).  Interest rates are close to the historic lows which have buyers in the market looking for well priced and well conditioned “market ready” homes.  And in many neighborhoods homes are receiving multiple offers for those “market ready” homes.

According to NTREIS, our local MLS, the marketplace for East Dallas residential properties 1/1/2021 thru 6/30/2021 versus the same period in 2020:
