Do you know about the economic index now used to help estimate swings in the Central Texas real estate market?  It was born after the housing bust (circa 2007-2011).  That is when a collaborative team from The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas determined to pinpoint information that may signal a heads up in the future.  They sought to forecast impacts on the business cycle.  

Indicators of Future Residential Markets

Several factors help predict the future of the homes market in Texas. Traditionally, primary emphasis has been on building permits and interest rates, which continue to be factors.  But there are many more measurable forces in play.  The TAMU/Federal Reserve team came up with additional extrapolations as presented by Jesus Canas, Keith R. Philips, and Luis B. Torres in a January 2016 article, "Home Construction Ahead: Forecasting Ups and Downs" published in Tierra Grande Magazine.

How Water Affects 2014 Fredericksburg TX Real Estate Values

Posted in: Market Updates
Keep in mind the effects of water on values of Fredericksburg TX real estate.  We have seen how property values fluctuate with the economic predictors and overall real estate market.  But let's look at how the water element impacts property values in Texas.

What's New?


By 2014, a discernible change in property values has been attributed to new federal legislation.  The Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 required FEMA and other agencies to raise flood insurance rates to reflect the true flood risks of any area in the United States.  Fredericksburg TX real estate enjoys a scenic Hill Country location a few miles from the Pedernales and Guadalupe rivers and several large lakes.  As these water bodies do not run through our historic city, the adjustments to our flood insurance premiums may be minimal.
