Big day for small hotels: zoning board approves Love, Bowie plans

It was a big day for small hotels at the Fort Worth Zoning Commission meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 9.

Fort Worth home sales increased 28% year-over-year from July 2019 to 1,576 homes in July 2020. The median price for Fort Worth homes increased 6.9% year-over-year to $247,500. 

“We are still seeing a bustling housing market, prices are rising, inventory is low and sales are happening at a brisk pace.” said Shelby Kimball, 2020 President of the Greater Fort Worth Association of REALTORS. “We expect the inventory to stay low, but do think the summer selling season will be lengthened as schools delay and school start times are less of a factor this year. Also, with such a low inventory it may take time for buyers to find the right property.”

Fort Worth’s monthly housing inventory was 0.7, less than the year prior. The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University cites that 6.5 months of inventory represents a market in which supply and demand for homes is balanced.

Homes spent an average of 39 days on the market, five days more than in July 2019. Additionally, active listings decreased 26.7% to 2,122 listings during the same time frame.
