The short answer is YES! It is still a good time to sell a house in Tarrant County.
Texas recently became a Buyer’s market. It has been a Seller’s market for the last 2 years, but the market is changing. The recent increase in interest rates by the Federal Reserve is causing the cost of borrowing money to increase. This includes mortgage loans for homebuyers. Because homebuyers now have to pay more for a mortgage they have less buying power, and as a result, home values have recently slightly declined.
But Texas is still a very popular destination for people looking to relocate so if you are thinking to yourself, “I want to sell my house fast,” it is still a good time to sell, especially with an experienced local real estate agent. Selling now may allow you to get a little bit more for your home now if interest rates continue to rise.
To sell your house faster you’ll need to find an experienced, local real estate agent who knows the market.

Sell my house on the MLS
If you’re selling your house on the MLS having an experienced realtor is likely the best route to getting as much as possible for your home. You’ll want to price your home similarly to other homes that have sold recently in your neighborhood. You’ll need to sign a seller’s disclosure notice that details every issue you are aware of about the property. You’ll need to provide specific detailed HOA information as well.
There are many closing costs that you’ll need to be prepared for. The seller typically pays the commission for the real estate agents involved. It is usually a total of 6% with 3% going to the buyer’s agent and 3% going to the seller’s agent. Other closing costs the seller usually pays are the title insurance, escrow fees and any seller concessions.
Selling your house on the MLS in Texas will take approximately a month and a half to 3 months -if all goes well. There may be an open house and most likely multiple showings. After your home sells, it takes time for a mortgage company to underwrite a loan. There will be a wait period before the closing date.
You’ll want to find simple ways to make your home as attractive as possible without spending a lot of money.
