The Real Estate Market in DallasTopic: Real Estate Technology
While the worst is now behind us, a number of people are now wondering if this is the right to buy a house. As usual there are mixed reaction, with a certain segment stressing that this is the best time to buy houses, while a few following the wait and watch mantra. So what is the truth? Is it really the time to buy a house in Dallas? How does the real estate market in Dallas look?
A report by Fannie Mae about people’s attitudes towards housing, suggests that about 67% of the people surveyed, believe that housing is a safe investment. Considering Dallas foreclosure rates, this is indeed a pointer to the fact that the Dallas real estate market has remained strong. With the number of foreclosed properties increasing, first time owners have an increased chance to find great discounts on home prices. But, considering the fact that the house owner hasn’t paid his mortgage he wouldn’t have paid attention, to the repair work either. So there’s the added expenditure of having to spend on repair works. The trick here is to find a home where repair works are kept at its bare minimum.
When compared to other areas the real estate market remains resilient with a number of Dallas homes for sale. Dallas continues to remain attractive because of the reasonable homes, and job growth. Although this is a buyer’s market expecting sellers to offer discounts beyond a certain amount is unwise, as contrary to popular belief, banks and sellers aren’t in a hurry to sell.
While there isn’t too much of hope in the affluent areas, buying property in the cheap areas where the prices have fallen in line with salaries makes sense.
But before you begin to look for a home in Dallas here are a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost find time to know a seasoned agent who has considerable experience in the real estate market in Dallas. It’s better to know them before you commit yourself to a long term agreement. Also, before you sign up an agreement with the real estate advisor in Dallas, make sure that there is a way out of the agreement. Generally an established real estate agent in Dallas wouldn’t draw impossible conditions to keep you tied up with them. Also make sure to know if you are qualified for a mortgage. Getting yourself preapproved ensures that you can assure to the seller of financing the deal.
So if you are looking for Addison homes for sale, or looking for Frisco homes or McKinney homes, now is the right time to buy, provided you make your move wisely.
