Frequently asked questions about real estate in Texas

Are more people moving into or out of Texas?

Move.org’s State of Moving 2021 places Texas #2 in the top states people moved to and moved from in 2021, which isn’t unusual – the most vacated states are also often the most popular locations for movers.

Is it a good time to buy real estate in Texas?

Texas housing market statistics show that median home prices are steadily increasing month over month and year over year, reaching record-breaking levels in all five major metro areas. The state’s average days on market (DOM) decreased marginally to 31 days, indicating that price hikes may be slowing for a time. However, demand continues to rise and Texas is still very much a seller’s market, so now could be a good time to buy in the Lone Star state to avoid rising interest rates and further price hikes.

Where are the most affordable houses in Texas?

According to Better Homes & Gardens, the most affordable places (starting with the most affordable) to live in Texas include:

  • Wichita Falls

Are there real estate scams in Texas I should know about?

Yes, though thankfully they’re relatively uncommon. Scams around Texas home sales or rentals may include:

  • Fake home sales or rentals. Scammers solicit online offers and receive payments for properties they don’t own.
  • Illegal subdivisions. Scammers sell illegally subdivided properties in undeveloped neighborhoods that lack access to water, wastewater, and emergency services.
  • Foreclosure relief. Scammers offer homeowners foreclosure relief for an upfront fee with no intention to help.

Other scams homeowners and homebuyers may be susceptible to include:

  • Escrow wire fraud. Scammers contact homebuyers with instructions on where to wire escrow funds.
  • Loan flipping. Predatory lenders persuade homeowners to refinance their mortgage multiple times at higher fees.
  • Moving scams. Predatory movers ransom a homeowner’s belongings back to them for a much higher moving fee than the original estimate.
