A Fort Worth real estate agent would tell you that the average property on the market today sells for a whopping Ft Worth. Is this accurate? Not entirely. It depends where you live. While you may want to spend money on a new home or investment property,you don’t have to because many homes are actually worth less than they were when they sold. This article looks at several homes that can be had for less than what is listed on the current MLS listing.
Fort Worth is basically an urbanized version of Dallas. In the early part of the nineteenth century,it was an important crossroads for cattlemen on the Chisholm Trail,as well as a major trading post for cowboy cowboys in the post-civil war period. Now,it is a modern,cosmopolitan city,home to many great museums,including the Kimbell Art Museum,the Southwestern Art Museum,and the Fort Worth Stockyards. The Fort Worth Stockyards house rodeos and rodeo competitions,and the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum recognize legendary cowboys. The homes on the premises are reasonably priced,though there is a sizable price gap between houses for sale. Google Street View images of these properties are shown below.
If you happen to live in a place that’s not listed on the MLS,but has a significant ranching and hunting history,this may be good news for you. There are plenty of homes on the market that were built before the nineteen seventies,including homes built by ranchers who lived and raised cattle in the area before the statehood. Buying a piece of the past is the way to go if you want to have a little bit of history in your present.
