“I started seeing things start changing the second week in January…where I was like, whoa!”

.…on seeing a surge of recent home buyer interest in DFW, via WFAA.
After DFW median home prices spiked to $429,000 around the middle of 2022, they fell down to earth a bit in the year’s second half, dropping to $385,000 according to data from the Texas Real Estate Research Center.
Atkins told WFAA that has led to renewed interest lately—a sign that a cooled Dallas home sales market could be heating up again as interest rates have begun to dip too.
“I’m telling you I started seeing things start changing the second week in January…where I was like, whoa! Showing activities bumped up double, if not triple from a month ago,” Atkins told WFAA recently.
After posting a new listing for a home recently, Atkins saw instant response.
“We put it in at 9 a.m. this morning and there’s seven showings set up for tomorrow,” he told WFAA—adding that he also got “multiple cash offers” recently on a home listing that had shown little action over the holidays.
