​​​​​​​​​​DALLAS –​ ​​Over 106,000 preowned single-family homes were sold last year in North Texas, 5 percent more than the all-time high in 2016. 

The 2017 sales increase was helped by a jump in December home purchases. Dallas-Fort Worth real estate agents sold 8,990 houses last month, a 12 percent rise from December 2016, according to data from the Real Estate Center and North Texas Real Estate Information Systems Inc.

Median sales prices last month were 8 percent ahead of December 2016 at $250,000. P​rices grew 9 percent from 2016 to 2017.

At the end of December, 17,400 preowned homes were listed for sale in North Texas—6 percent more than a year earlier. 

Sales ​of houses priced below ​$180,000 declined in 2017 because a low number of these properties were on the market. ​​

​​​DFW home sales have risen more than 60 percent since 2010.
