September Real Estate Update for Austin, TX

The Austin Board of Realtors recently finalized their numbers for September and those numbers bring more good news for the overall health of the Austin area housing market. In the Austin
area, 2,391 single-family homes were sold in September, a 34% increase vs 2012 and the most sales for September since 2005! The number of days a home was on the market in the Austin area in September was down 22% vs last September and sold in only 44 days. The median sales price this September rose more than 13% from last year to $223,000.

Almost more significant are the statistics surrounding the Austin areas housing inventory and will have a impact as we close out the year. This September, Austin had 2,487 new single-family homes come on the market, 17% more than last September, and a total of just under 6,000 total active single-family home listings, 12% less than last year this same month. All of this results in 2.7 months supply of single-family homes, 1 month less than September 2012. In a market balanced between supply and demand, there is about 6.5 months of supply. At only 2.7 months supply, Austin’s  market continues to be a strong seller’s market and is desperate for new listings!
