Central Texas Housing Market Continues To Soar Despite Low Inventory

The ABoR Central Texas Housing Market reports continued strength across the five-county area in the month of September. Sales dollar volume jumped 51.7% (now up to $1,779,067,529) and the median price rose 12.1% to $355,000. The number of new listings has increased 5%, pending sales increased over 28%, while inventory for active listings decreased almost 50% compared to last year.

Homes are currently seeing an average of 37 days on market, (2 weeks fewer compared to 2019). Historically this time of year shows a slow down in real estate activity, but with the covid-19 impact pushing back the spring market, summer selling season extended into September and beyond.

“The housing market is pumping billions of dollars into our region’s economy at a time it’s greatly needed, but we also need to be cognizant of the impact such rapid activity is having on record-low inventory levels and rising home prices . . . Markets are showing the same gains in prices and declines in inventory as we’re used to seeing inside Austin, putting pressure on the market as a whole,” said 2020 ABoR president Romeo Manzanilla. 

“Austin’s economy is bouncing back better than most cities, allowing more people to make a move to a home that meets their needs. To solve Austin’s housing supply and affordability challenges, we need to commit to streamlined review and approval processes for new construction.” - Vaike O’Grady, Austin Regional Director for Zonda
