Higher interest rates, tighter inventory, higher home prices, and general buyer fatigue are all factors that have led to home sales being down in a number of DFW neighborhoods and communities throughout 2018.

At the close of September, pre-owned home sales have dropped in quite a few markets this year, especially in places like Duncanville, Fairview, Northwest Dallas, and Allen. These communities have seen a decline in home sales by 19 percent, 19 percent, 17 percent, and 15 percent respectively.
