Although this this an accurate picture of the current market – each sub area needs to be looked at separately.

October will be the first month where HOT Areas south of LBJ have felt substantial decreases, take a look at N. Dallas and Park Cities.

Plano took a big hit a couple of months ago and seems to be weathering the storm just fine – more appreciation to come
faster now.

The Big Shout Out from this is the areas south of LBJ are experiencing a huge adjustment – most resale homes are priced above $500,000 and there is over an 11 month supply on the market once you hit that price level.

North Dallas and Park Cities still show up in all categories by double digits increases – except for sales – that will force a downward pressure in pricing especially for the time of year. (in my opinion) Note: Pending sales are down 8% and that is another disappointing  indicator for Nov. sales.

This does not include builders of new homes and if you’re over the $1,000,000. mark, and have been sitting on the side lines waiting for the right time to buy…This is it!  

Builders will want to get inventory off their books that has been sitting for year(s).  Not kidding…Many builders got caught in speculating before the market changed and it’s lasted longer than they thought.

Many new homes are sitting vacant that would love to have a new family for the holidays and I’m sure the builders would love to sell you. ( I know where some great properties are)….

This also goes for condos and townhomes that are experiencing a huge glut of inventory in areas south of LBJ, including Oak Lawn and Uptown…
