Fort Worth home sales increased 1.2 percent to 846 homes in February 2019. The median price for Fort Worth homes increased 4.3 percent year-over-year to $222,000 in February 2019.
"We are seeing a really steady increase in active listings," said Moiri Brown, 2019 President of the Greater Fort Worth Association of REALTORS. "While prices continue to rise, it is at a much slower pace than previous years. Also, days on market are starting to increase, allowing buyers more time to go through the decision-making process.”
Fort Worth’s monthly housing inventory was 2.2 months in February 2019, 0.6 months more than the year prior. The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University cites that 6.5 months of inventory represents a market in which supply and demand for homes is balanced.
