Wichita Falls Real Estate Update- October 31, 2011

by Ashton Gustafson

Market Overview

We are seeing a challenging market in North Texas at this time. YTD our residential market sales are down approximately 20%. With a challenge, we also see opportunity. The current interest rates are still as low as we have ever seen them, which means the buyer today has more power than he ever has. Should one be looking to buy and hold, we see this as a great investment opportunity. All in all, this is a market we have described as a "Price War and Beauty Contest"....To hear a recording of my view on the market at this time, see

We would love to discuss with you any questions you may have in the market today! Call me anytime at 940.691.7355.
