Dallas REALTORS Are Excited For Booming Dallas Housing Market And Home Values Rising For 2017!
By Alex
January 4, 2017

        Dallas Real Estate Agents and Dallas REALTORS are loving the fact that the Dallas Cowboys are winning so much in football.  There is even a chance that they might go to the Super Bowl.  Woohoo!  What is even more exciting is that home values and stats are in for 2017.  And they are even bigger then the Dallas Cowboys!  Believe me Dallas is winning on all fronts!  The city is thriving right now!  Honestly, has Dallas ever not been thriving in the past 10 years or so?  The housing market has a lot to do with it.  Home values are going to only keep on increasing!  

        2016 was an amazing year for home buyers and sellers.  Home values were on the rise.  Reports show that home values went up to 13% from the previous year.  They are predicted to go up 7% in 2017.  Sellers are loving this!  The equity they are making when selling their home is a nice treat for them.  Considering that around 10 years ago we all saw the worst housing market crash in my lifetime.  I was not a Dallas Real Estate Agent then to see it all go down, and I'm glad I didn't.  At the time I was just finishing schooling for skincare.  Now I am happy to be a REALTOR and to be in Dallas doing it.  There are tons of great cities to live in, but Dallas is where my heart is at.  

        Home values are hot right now.  Dallas has some of the bestt zip codes to live in anywhere this side of the Mississippi River.  If the Dallas Cowboys go all the way to the Super Bowl then values are gonna go up even more.  Dallas is already on the map because all the jobs are leaving states like California and New York.  That is a big part or why real estate is so amazing here.  We also have shows like HGTV Fixer Upper and The Real Housewives Of Dallas that have also helped to put Dallas on the map.  But winning the Super Bowl would be the cherry on top.  I'm looking forward to 2017 as a REALTOR!  I know it is gonna be a big one!  I have huge goals set for myself!  Let's do it together!  Call me for all you buying and selling needs.

        Having a real estate company like Coldwell Banker is important to me.  There are lost of brokerages that pop up around town time to time and are promised to be the "next big thing".  And they are far from it.  They are in it to make some fast money before inflating.  Coldwell Banker has been around for more than 110 years.  They have tools, technology, and experience to help make them the best.  One thing that I love is that they help me become tech savy when I am far from it.  They help me make Youtube videos for all my new homes for sell, they have slick iPad and iPhone listing presentations for clients, REALTOR Apps, and plenty of other great tools to help set me apart.

Dallas Real Estate Agent Alex Prins Relocates Another Couple From St. Louis, MO To Dallas, TX!

        I love being a Dallas Relocation Realtor.  No matter where in the United States one of my clients is from, they alway have this perception on Dallas being covered in cowboy hats and cattle!  Yee haw!  We do have the Dallas Cowboys...so I guess that will have to do.  Truth is Dallas is a metroplex populated with skyscrapers, fast cars, and lots of city slickers from big cities like New York City or Los Angeles.  We also have one of the biggest and best economies busting at the seams with Fortune 500 companies.  Don't get me wrong we love our cowboy boots, but Dallas is very slick and anyone will love to live here.  

        My most recent clients are a cute little married couple relocating from St. Louis to Dallas.  They did not know what to expect when they got to Dallas.  So it was my job to find them the home of their dreams and inform them about all that Dallas has to offer.  Whenever someone is relocating here they mostly only know Dallas from what is on Google.  Don't get me wrong you can learn alot on the internet, but seeing it in person is the best way the city you are gonna live in.  I spend countless hours driving the streets to learn all the best neighborhoods.  

        I am not just a typical REALTOR.  I work non stop and go the extra mile for everyone.  No matter the cost of your home, I am going to treat you with 5 Star Service.  Relocating to another city can be overwhelming.  Alex Prins Real Estate of Coldwell Banker Dallas is here to help you with all your Relocation needs!  Call me for all your buying and selling needs!

Home Owners Ask Dallas Real Estate Agents and REALTORS What Is My Home Worth In A Hot Market!

        Dallas Real Estate Agents get asked a lot of questions by potential home buyers and sellers.  One of the main questions I get as a REALTOR is, how much is my home worth?  It is a very common question.  Money makes the world for round and with the Dallas Real Estate Market doing so well the values have risen.  The market is hot!  Home values were up 13% last year.  For 2017 we are expected to see it go up to 7% or more.  That means money in your pocket.  So of course everyone wants to know how much their home is worth. 

        There are thousands of Dallas Homes For Sale.  In the Dallas Metroplex there are over 1.3 million people living in the city.  So there are a lot of homes to sell.  Everyone is wanting to cash in on the rising market while they can.  Real Estate companies like Zillow give an estimate on what your home may be worth.  The values are close, but no cigar.  The only true way to find out how much your home is worth is to call a Dallas Real Estate Agent.  We can run the comps of sold homes in your area from our MLS.  We can match the same amount of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, upgrades, and other features of your home compared to sold ones.  This is the only true way to find the value of your home.  Zillow goes off of tax records which are not always updated.  When I run the comps as your Dallas REALTOR, I use recent comps from 6 months ago.  The market moves fast and you have to use the most recent comps.  If you use one from 2 years ago like Zillow does then you are looking at a lower estimate.  You have to hire a REALTOR.  Plus it's free to run a CMA, Comparative Market Analysis. 

        I love being a Real Estate Agent.  Meeting a potential client and running the numbers is one of the most exciting things I do.  A lot of times the equity in a home can really help change someones life.  So it is so important to me to be as accurate as I can.  Listing your home is part of what I do.  Selling it to savy home buyers is the second part of my job.  In todays market over pricing your home is not in your best interest.  It will just sit on the market longer.  So make sure to contact an Award Winning REALTOR like Alex Prins for all your buying and selling needs!

Make 2017 The Year To Sell Your Home! Dallas Real Estate Agents Agree Now Is The Time To Sell!

        2016 was a great year for Dallas Real Estate!  2017 is going to be an even better one tho!  Home values are expected to be up 7% or more this year.  Forbes ranked DFW as the #1 place to invest and projected to increase to 31% by 2020!  Home owners have become very aware of how the market is moving.  They notice their neighborhoods being sprinkled with For Sale signs and are ready to jump in on the action.  Not to mention the election year is over.  Home owners tend to feel more comfortable and optimistic about the future when the "unknown" of who the next president will be is over.  Now everyone can focus on the future.

        Selling your home can be a very overwhelming feeling.  You have to invest in a Top Dallas Real Estate Agent to help guide you through the entire process.  It is January so the home buying season is just about to begin.  Doing some research to find a great real estate agent, getting your home updated with minor painting, repairs, and deep cleaning your home are some of the first steps to getting ready to sell your home.  Before you get too far just take small steps before going full force.  Spring is the hot time to sell and buy a home.  So laying down the ground work is important.  In this real estate market homes tend to go fast.  It can happen in the blink of an eye.  

        2017 is going to be an amazing year for selling your home.  Putting together all the moving parts is important to have a smooth running machine.  As your REALTOR that is what I am here for.  I have had clients call me to meet with them a full month or two before selling their home.  I give them all the information they need to list their home.  Then they spend the next month or so getting their home picture perfect ready to sell.  And with everything moving full speed ahead their home is able to sell fast.  I love nothing more then seeing the smiles on their faces when I see all their hard work paid off!  It makes my job that much more enjoyable!  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.
