Real Estate Center Announces January MLS Data

Median price for Dallas up 7%! Sales down 8%:( See my post for more comment and link to the article.

Last Update: 2012-07-04 11:22:19

p>These are January numbers. Median prices can be deceptive especially without information on median SF and property type. Nonetheless we'd all rather it were up rather than down. Great!

Volume down 8%. Not so good. Inventory 6.4 months, not so bad. Caveat is to watch out for shadow inventory (I recall foreclosure postings are up) and pent up supply (seller's holding off market waiting for improvement.)

Here's the article from The Real Estate Center at A&M. Their link is in the article.


COLLEGE STATION (Real Estate Center) – Some 10,628 existing single-family homes were sold in Texas last month, according to the most recent Multiple Listing Services (MLS) data compiled by the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University. That's a 2 percent increase over a year ago.

The median price was also up 2 percent from January 2010, at $139,100. There was a 7.3-month inventory.

January 2011 MLS data for many Texas cities (current as of today) are available on the Center's website. Here is a sampling:
