What Is The Impact To The Texas Real Estate Market?

In short, the impact to the Texas real estate market has been catastrophic. Primarily in the north DFW real estate market we had an influx of California cash and it caused uncontrolled price escalation and scarcity.

Texas Home Prices Skyrocketed during 2022

In 2019 the average Collin County home price was $377,993 and in 2022 it had risen to $618,892. Keep in mind, that is an average price for an existing home. New home prices shot up even faster and higher.

We had clients in the Prosper/Celina area experience $200k to $300k equity increases due to the escalating new construction home prices. We have seen a 4% average drop in home prices in the last 6 months. So our market is stable on pricing.


The $500 question is, will the migration stop or even slow down anytime soon. We believe the answer is no!
