In all four markets the median sale price was down from December, but all are still up year over year. Cooke and Grayson Counties have less volume thus the statistical data fluctuates more. January was a rocky month for the stock markets and oil prices have continued to be low. We will continue to watch the markets to see how they will be impacted.

All data is from the North Texas Real Estate Informational Systems which is deemed reliable but not guaranteed.

How is Oil Impacting the Housing Market in Texas?

Many in our area and certainly throughout the state of Texas are feeling the impact of oil prices. As much as we love paying less at the pump, we do not love the job losses that occur when prices get too low. It has a ripple effect on our economy.
