New report analyzes Texas homebuyer, seller experience of working with a Texas REALTOR®
Nov. 14, 2017, 2017—AUSTIN—The Texas Association of REALTORS® released today a new report that gauges Texas homebuyer and seller satisfaction of working with a real estate agent. The inaugural Texas REALTOR® Satisfaction Index showed that a majority of homebuyers and sellers highly value the local market knowledge and expertise that Texas REALTORS® provide. Survey respondents cited word-of-mouth referrals and timeliness in communications as important factors in the selection and satisfaction of working with a real estate agent.
Fort Worth home sales raised 16 percent to 1,067 homes in October 2017. The median price for Fort Worth homes increased 8.7 percent year-over-year to $203,454 in October 2017.
Fort Worth’s monthly housing inventory was 2.2 months in October 2017, 0.3 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 35 days on the market in October 2017, the two days less than October 2016. Additionally, active listings increased 22.3 percent to 2,313 listings during the same time frame.
