As the housing market continues to prod along there are signs of life at the $500K & up price ranges. This information is from the MLS February sales data. The upper end market has been most effected by tighter lending requirements based on a greater amount to lend. Banks still tend to be weary of large loan packages. A 15.1% increase in sales does look like that could be easing. Resales are outpacing new homes sales because buyers are finding better values in prime locations. The spring market is picking up steam and there is plenty of inventory to preview, so if you've being thinking about buying or starting the process timing couldn't be more perfect. Rates could be rising so now would be a good time to buy in the DFW Market.
