Median Historic Sales Price Trends for Zip Code 76179

Most real estate agents don't tell you the things I share with you in my blog because they don't study the real estate market, they react to it. For example, the median price trend graph attached below shows the local activity we are experiencing in the 76179 zip code over a period of 10 years. I make it my business to be the expert on the local housing market. I look at national and luxury home market trends as well, but that is the subject of another blog. I hope that you read my blogs and are finding them useful and educational. Are you going to be entering in the market any time in the near future. Given any thought to who you will be using to consult with you as you move and shake in the real estate market?

Market Condition for Lake Country Estates Fort Worth


We have helped a lot of buyers and sellers in the Eagle Mountain Lake community in the last 14 years and we've cycled through several different types of marketing over that time. Most people have heard the terms, "Buyers Market" or "Seller's Market" but is there any such thing as a neutral real estate market?

Here we are on June 1st, 2018 and so we ask ourselves...what are the market conditions in the local real estate market in Lake Country Estates? By looking at the bar graph below, we can see that May of 2017 and May of 2018 both had 4.9 months of housing inventory. Neutral markets are defined as having between 3 to 6 months of housing inventory so we can then say that Lake Country Estates is in a neutral market. In contrast, A seller's market has an inventory of less than 3 months and a buyer's market would be greater than 6 months of inventory.

This blog post is obviously not going to drill down to your particular neighborhood since I can only generalize about a broader area and one that is relative to the majority of people that might read the article. However, we can gain some great insight and perspective into an area or city and compare it to a larger area or city. In this case I'll use Saginaw Texas and compare to Fort Worth. And, since there are many variables with which we can compare, I'll settle on one of my favorites and that is "Months Supply". This variable basically tells us the months supply of inventory in a given market. Once we know how many months of supply we have, it is ea ...
