PARKER COUNTY - With demand increasing, it is a good time to sell a house in Parker County as existing home sales and prices are up, according to Multiple Listing Service data collected by North Texas Real Estate Information Systems.

As of August, home sales were up 11.7 percent over the same time last year in Parker County, with more than 1,400 homes sold so far this year. 

The average home sales price was $246,506, up 10.2 percent over the same time last year. 

The median sales price of a home was $220,000, up 10.6 percent over the same time last year.

Buyers have been paying 95.5 percent of the original list price, also slightly up over last year.

Parker County is not alone. Home sales are rising in the DFW area and the state.

The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University earlier this week announced that MLS data show Texas home sales had a 7 percent year-over-year increase in August as the median price went up 7.4 percent.
