Well now that Easter has come and gone, I can officially call the season that just ended "the Winter that never was..."  Kind of like one of those Narnia movies where the frozen landscape just seems to thaw out into green meadows.  And the real real estate market (the spring market) actually started in January and February.  With nicer weather, people were getting out and looking at homes more so than in years past.  And yes we still have a pretty tight market in core neighborhoods, the listing inventory for desirable neighborhoods is hovering between 1 and 2 months...but sales have also been slowing down from their frenetic pace over the last few years.

Wow!  With all the recent rain/sleet/snow, Fort Worth yards are greening up, trees are budding out, and wildflowers are surging up along the roads...and Sellers are realizing that now is the perfect time to sell!  Interest rates are still inexplicably low...(that will change in the 3rd quarter) and new construction is going on everywhere you look.

Well darn, somebody leaked the secret.  Word is out that Fort Worth is not only a cool place to live, work, and play, it is good for business too.  That was okay as long as it was just us that knew about it, but now Moneymagazine has gone and shot off their mouth about it! Keep it quiet guys..or else half of California is going to end up moving here...and that would just be too much!
