North Texas existing homes sales continued to expand in June, rising 12 percent from a year ago, according to the latest Texas A&M University Real Estate Center report.

Median prices rose 13 percent, to $185,820, for the 29 counties included in the report.

It’s taking home owners less time to sell their homes, too. In June, the number of days a house was on the market before being sold was 50, down 26 percent from June of 2012, the report shows.

The number of homes listed for sale also continues to dwindle. In North Texas, 23,791 homes were listed last month, 19 percent less than a year ago, the report said.

Sales in Tarrant County were particularly strong in Roanoke, which saw sales rise 200 percent from a year ago. Northeast Arlington and the central Arlington-Dalworthington Gardens- Pantego area also saw strong June sales.

Through June, existing home sales in North Texas were up 19 percent from the first six months of 2012, reaching 43,230, the report said. The median sale price through the first six months was $170,000, up 10 percent.

The Real Estate Center gathers numbers from Realtor-supplied multiple listing service databases.
