3 Steps to Navigate a Gridlocked DFW Housing Market

The Dallas Fort Worth Housing Market has never seen such a housing shortage as now, and that is occurring with a record-breaking 40,000 new homes built in 2020 and another 40,000 forecasted to be built in 2021 according to KRLD Radio. Additionally, KRLD 1080 Radio reported, "the median price for a single-family home jumped 16% last month to nearly $313K, the highest price ever in North Texas."

For generations, there has always been an ample supply of area homes for sale, especially new homes, and that has helped to keep home prices competitive and in check, but for now, that past norm is "out the window" as the DFW Metroplex struggles with a housing supply shortage and rising prices.

 AI Will Change Real Estate Landscape

As Texas moves forward into tomorrow's AI technology world, the entire construct of civilization as formerly understood is about to experience a polar shift. The next ten years will see dynamic population changes due to workforce demands, and Texas finds itself at the forefront of an uptrend in housing demand.

The recent so-called Pandemic did, if anything, revealed many societal inefficiencies regarding traditional corporate capital infrastructure expenditures. Businesses large and small are now increasingly shifting from expensive office buildings towards a more capital-preserving work-from-home workforce. Homes connected to the fiber-optic gigabit pipeline are in high demand for marketing, sales, software, medical, engineering, and IT

Dallas Fort Worth Real Estate Market Changes are on The Horizon Today

IT was bound to happen. Overplaying the COVID card has caused mountains of reckless government borrowing. With each passing day, the resulting debt-aftermath is approaching, and it looks daunting. It is clear to prevent a complete collapse of the credit currency that interest rates will need to go up to begin to remove from circulation all those inflation-causing credit instruments responsible for skyrocketing real estate and stock market valuations. In doing so, the Reserve Bank protects itself from collapse while transferring any resulting consequences to the people.

Honestly, it is not difficult to see that natural law is the gold standard of civilization. It fosters pricing stability and rationality, but it seems absent in today's artificial

Massive Winter Storm Uri Reeks Havoc Across Texas

Below Zero Temp Anna TX 2-16-2021Millions of Texans, including scores of families that have moved here recently, got a reminder of Mother Nature's fury, compliments of Winter Storm Uri (photo courtesy of NASA). As it turns out, our solar system's Sun is now in what is known as a Solar Minimum. This might, according to astronomer Bob Berman, suggest we may be seeing more of these powerful winter storms in the coming years, due to lower sunspot activity. The good news is that Texas' electric grid problems are all fixable, but it will cost money and require tens of thousands of new jobs to get this big Texas fail-safe job done. Texas is a can-do state, and the initiative is couched in urgency as stated by Gov. Greg Abbott.

Job number one is to create the most robust, spare capacity

 DLPFC is the Scientific Formula for Selling Your Home

This blog gets directly to the point. "DLPFC" controls the sale of real estate. When an MLS listed property does not sell, one or more of the factors below are responsible.

Sellers Need to Understand the Concept of "DLPFC"

D - DEMAND. Without it, there are no buyers and no sales.

L - LOCATION. Location affects demand. Even great locations are subject to micro-location factors that affect demand and pricing.

P - PRICE. Rational price support must be generally supported by individual property facts and COMPS. Get this wrong and demand drops and listings languish on the market unsold.

F - FLOORPLAN. This is an underestimated factor. Not all floorplans have the same value. Identical homes (same floorplan), one having 3.5 baths and the
