From January 1, 2012 to January 26, 2012, 34 listings in the Pottsboro and Denison area were SOLD or PENDING, compared to a year ago for the same time period in 2011, when 26 listings in the Pottsboro and Denison area were SOLD or PENDING. That is a 30% increase for 2012, and inventory continues to dwindle as active listings decline 12.4% in Denison, 18.1% in Pottsboro from December 2010 to December 2011.

Key drivers of resort property sales are employment rates, retiring Baby Boomers, affordability, new attractions to the area, and interest rates. Employment rates have risen and consumer confidence has risen 15 points in the last month. Lake property affordability has improved as interest rates have fallen further to 3.98% from 4.23% in October of 2010. Additionally, the Denison area was named as one of the top 10 least expensive urban areas in the U.S., according to the ACCRA Cost of Living Index. A cold, wet wintry day is certainly the BEST time to purchase a PREMIER Lake Texoma property. BUY now and be ready to enjoy the beautiful Spring weather!
