  1. Looks like supply has really changed in recent years. Is it all those Californians absorbing the market? Less distressed inventory? Increasing demand?

    By the way, I really like the clean feel of your blog. When leaving a comment it just feels more polished.

    1. Thanks, Ryan! Great questions! I would say that the Californians and others moving to the area have absorbed the homes in the immediate Dallas/Ft Worth market and it has forced many to expand their search for more affordable housing, thus Cooke County has been seeing an increase in demand. You would be surprised how far some will commute in this area. There is definitely less distressed inventory ( only 1 foreclosure sale per year for the last 3 years in Lake Kiowa), also there has been an increase in demand which has then spawned an increase in new construction.

      As far as the blog, yes! I am loving the new platform. WordPress really is superb for blogging. I was happy to be able to add interactive charts here.

      Thanks for your comments. They are always very much appreciated!

    1. Thanks, Joe! Yes, I like them too and was glad to be able to add them to the post. They are from our MLS- (NTREIS) Trends data. I have been using their chart maker and this is the first time I was able to embed them into the post so that they would be active. Not sure if your MLS has something like that or not.
