The Numbers behind the Ft. Worth Housing Crisis.

Benefit from market demand. MoneyBug is the key to sell your house in Fort Worth fast.

Nation-topping numbers equal top dollar payouts.

Economic reports indicate a tight housing market right now in Fort Worth, and, statewide it seems to be the same story. We recently shared the publication of nationwide data that reflects rising rental prices and explained how homeowners like you could greatly benefit with the sale of their home. In line with this situation, Fort Worth also sees their fair share of stressed housing supply, and time is of the essence for homeowners who want to take advantage.

According to CareLogic and the Dallas Morning News, Dallas-Fort Worth home prices have risen nearly 10 percent compared to prices recorded Summer 2016 while the nationwide average only came to 6.2 percent. This price appreciation does have a silver lining, though, and is indicative of a full recovery of the housing market. Prices like these have not been seen since pre-recession America 2007, and they are projected to keep rising at a steady pace. Prices in North Texas have increased almost 40 percent since the recession and are still growing at more than twice the traditional annual appreciation rates.
