AFFORDABILITY FOR HOUSING IS AN ISSUE. Prices in Tyler, East Texas & Northeast Texas have increased. Medium priced prices in Tyler & area about $165,000 & in Dallas area under $200,000. With wages flat, folks cannot buy as much home, although INTEREST RATES HAVE REMAINED LOW, which is a help. All this according to Dr. Jim Gaines of the TX A&M Real Estate Center. Mid-priced homes are roughly 50% higher than in the worst of the recession in early 2010. If you want to buy now is the TIME! Just call Bain Real Estate at 903-571-2191.
