AUSTIN, Texas— According to the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR) June and Midyear Central Texas Housing Market Report, 4,369 homes sold in June, a record for the month of June, across the Austin-Round Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), an 8.6% increase year over year.

Austin-Round Rock MSA housing market continues to break records in May 2021

AUSTIN, Texas – The greater Austin area posted record-breaking gains in May, as the median home price reached an all-time high—for any month on record—of $465,000, while both home sales and sales dollar volume skyrocketed, according to The Austin Board of REALTORS® May 2021 Central Texas Housing Report.

“Austin’s housing market has become one of the most competitive markets in the U.S.,” Susan Horton, 2021 ABoR President, said. “As new companies relocate to Austin and the city’s popularity draws in new residents, the sheer demand for housing has created a critical inventory shortage, reinforcing that affordability and accessibility to housing across our region is a real concern and should be a top priority for local leaders.” 

Residential home sales in the Austin Round-Rock MSA once again hit a record for the month of May, increasing 48% year over year to 3,976 sales, while the median sales price jumped 42.2% year over year to an all-time-high of $465,000. At the same time, sales dollar volume increased 116.2% year over year to $2,355,132,804. Monthly housing inventory

Austin-Round Rock MSA home sales jump 37% in April 2021

AUSTIN, Texas – The booming Austin-area housing market continued to demonstrate strength in April, with soaring double-digit growth in both home sales volume and median price growth. The Austin Board of REALTORS® April 2021 Central Texas Housing Report is the first market report to provide a direct comparison to the housing market during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“One year ago, shelter-in-place orders effectively ground real estate transactions to a halt, leaving uncertainty in the market,” Susan Horton, 2021 ABoR President, said. “Although striking at face value, last month’s housing market activity demonstrates not only a strong recovery since last spring, but significant growth beyond that recovery.” 

Residential home sales in the Austin Round-Rock MSA hit a record for the month of April, increasing 37.2% year over year to 3,604 sales, while median sales price rose 41.6% year over year to an all-time-high of $460,000. As a result, sales dollar volume topped two billion in April, skyrocketing 95.5% year over year to $2,065,570,878. Homes spent an average of 17 days on market, or 28 fewer days than in April 2020.

Austin-Round Rock MSA home sales price to all-time high in February 2021

AUSTIN, Texas – Following the devastating Texas winter storms that thwarted housing market activity for nearly two weeks, Austin-Round Rock MSA home sales dipped for the first time since June 2020. According to the latest Central Texas Housing Market Report released by the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR), Austin-area home sales declined 8% to 2,389 sales in February.  

During the same time, market demand drove housing inventory down 1.2 months to a record-low 0.4 months of inventory and the median home price up 22.5% to an all-time high of $395,000.  

“Although the winter storms slowed activity in February, this does not indicate a market slowdown. We’re still very much in a sellers’ market,” Susan Horton, 2021 ABoR president, said. “Across the region, a high quantity of offers, cash offers, and requests to waive appraisals or option fees are increasingly commonplace. Transaction contracts are complex with negotiations that require the expertise of a REALTOR® to navigate.” 

Across the five-county MSA, home sales dollar volume jumped 15.9% to $1,207,218,785, while pending sales fell 15.5% to

AUSTIN, Texas – Austin-Round Rock MSA home sales jumped 23.9% to 2,523 sales in January, according to the latest Central Texas Housing Market Report by the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR).  

“The last week has shown us, once again, that our homes are more important than ever,” Susan Horton, 2021 ABoR president, said. “Austin REALTORS® are not just local market experts in buying or selling a home but we can also provide guidance and resources for home repairs if your current home has been impacted by the winter storms. If you are currently in process of buying or selling a home, talk to your REALTOR® about how recent events might impact your closing timeline and what the appropriate next steps should be – this can include insurance policy terms or additional inspections that may be required.” 

Across the five-county MSA, home sales dollar volume skyrocketed 53.5% to $1,161,692,362 while pending sales increased 15.9% to 3,365 in January. Despite 2,878 new listings in January—an 11% decline from

AUSTIN, Texas – Aug. 17, 2017 – Single-family home sales volume held steady across the Austin-Round Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) in July, while housing inventory levels posted strong gains, according to the July 2017 Central Texas Housing Market Report released today by the Austin Board of REALTORS®.

Brandy Guthrie, 2017 President of the Austin Board of REALTORS­®, commented: “In years past, the high demand of the summer selling season has further constrained inventory levels and further pushed up home prices. This year has been different, with steady gains in sales volume as well as listings and inventory throughout the summer. During a month when housing inventory should reach its lowest point of the year, housing inventory across the Central Texas region is at its highest point since fall 2012.”
