Round Rock Ranch 2012 Real Estate Market Report

How was the Real Estate Market in Round Rock Ranch for 2012?

The real estate market in the Greater Austin area and Round Rock saw some incredible growth in 2012. Round Rock Ranch also saw some growth and, after an extremely busing January, I finally had time to put this information together. The graph below gives a good summary of most of the information I have. Round Rock Ranch Real Estate

In 2012, 22.9% more homes sold in Round Rock Ranch versus 2011. While the number of homes sold increased, that growth has not yet translated to much growth in sales prices as the average sales price was $156,679 (+.8%) and the average price per square foot was $75.36 (+2.5%). Whiles values remained unchanged, the average home for sale in Round Rock Ranch sold in 5 less days in 2012 versus 2011 (41 days, -11% vs 2011).

What do these numbers mean for you if you are looking to buy or sell a home in Round Rock Ranch 2013? If you are looking to buy a home,  the number of homes on the market is shrinking and homes are selling faster so you will likely have less options and more competition from other buyers. Because homes are selling more quickly, you should also move fast to put a strong offer in once you have found a home you really like.

If you potentially looking to sell you home in Round Rock Ranch this year, I would expect to sales prices increase in 2013 because of the strong demand and limited inventory. You have chosen a great time to sell! Drop me a note to learn about how my progressive marketing plan can go to work for you!

What About My Home?

A large number of factors are used to determine the value of your house and how much your home will sell for (yes, different numbers, depending on the market and how good your REALTOR is), including location, lot size, number of bedrooms & bathrooms, amenities and upgrades. An individual can sometimes get an idea of what they home would sell for by using the current price per square foot for their market (i.e. $75.84/sq.ft. x 2000 sq.ft. = $151,680).
