Fort Worth’s monthly housing inventory was 2.6 months in June 2019, 0.2 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.
Homes spent an average of 33 days on the market in June 2019, four days more than June 2018. Additionally, active listings increased 5.3 percent to 2,786 listings during the same time frame.

The Greater Fort Worth Association of Realtors® have agreed to join the National Association of Realtors® amicus brief in defense of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Association Health Plan rule. Amicus briefs are legal documents filed in appellate court cases by non-litigants that have a strong interest in the subject matter in question. Earlier this year, a federal court ruled that provisions of the DOL’s rule were unlawful, a ruling adversely impacting Realtors® seeking more cost effective and comprehensive health insurance solutions through AHP options.
