Mixed News for Amarillo, TX Home and Housing Market

New homes sold in our area fell to 126 for the period of 12 months ending last April. Closings for both existing and new homes also fell year-over-year. This is not the news that many homeowners in the Amarillo area wanted to hear. Here is a bit of the story that announced this news:
“In April, there was a drop year-over-year in new home closings in the Amarillo, TX market, and the decline was by a larger percentage than the March 2016. New home closings moved from 38 a year earlier to 6 after the figure moved from 27 in March 2015 to 7 in March 2016.”

However, there was some good news as well, at least for those who are trying to sell their homes. Prices are up for homes selling (year-over-year). But, this also means that most mortgages are up as well.

Well, while the news may be mixed on housing, Gowdy Flooring still sells the best natural stone flooring in our area, and we sell it for less. This is good news whether you are buying or selling.

Home sellers often want to add market resale value to their home to get a better price for it at the sale. Installing new natural stone flooring will do that for virtually any home. In fact, stone flooring is considered one of the best investments a homeowner can make if they want to add value to their home, increase its beauty, and make the home unique.

Home buyers love to see a new natural stone flooring system in place when they look at a home. They know that stone flooring is special, and that makes the home they are looking at special as well. And because natural stone flooring can last for centuries, it is an investment that truly comes with a long life.
