Fort Worth Real Estate Outlook.....Do you know???????????

Did you know that the real estate outlook here in the Fort Worth area which includes Tarrant Cty, Bedford, Hurst, North Richland Hills, Keller, Haslet, Colleyville, Saginaw, Southlake, Arlington, Mansfield, Grapevine, Euless, Eagle Mountain Lake, Aledo, ....and many other small communities..........

is ACTUALLY pretty good! 

After attending a Fall real estate forecast meeting on Wednesday, I felt like things are darn good here in our area....which reminds me that our Greater Fort Worth Board of Realtors adopted the saying;
"Thank God it's Fort Worth!".......and that has proven true.

Now...with that beginning, here is the situation.  While many states were increasing their values by 40 to 100 per cent annually.........Fort Worth and our "neck of the woods" was just clipping along at a snails pace.........never gaining too much, but also not falling too much....As as you may know by now, even within a city or county, there are places that do better than others....due to location, quaility, size of the properties, the schools, etc.

Yes, we have had a lot of foreclosures..........and again those have been more concentrated in specific areas.............and those areas were and are hit with lower valids...because a foreclosure does have an effect on the house next door and the area's comparables.

This new listing that I began marketing on Monday, Sept. 12 is a great family home. The area has has a few foreclosures and the values have been effected somewhat, but on this street...Long Rifle, there have been very few, and the homes are well maintained and there is a park at the end of the street.

With great schools nearby, this seller should have a successful sale in a short time.

The biggest thing to remember is to talk with a knowledgeable agent and discuss the outcome that you want.  Perhaps your home will bring a price that you want, or perhaps you will be able to get a really good buy on where you are moving.  There is more to real estate than the price!

Please call me to discuss your specific questions and any concerns that you may have about buying or selling in Tarrant County.
