What’s the Market Doing?

The Austin residential real estate market has been dynamic, often experiencing robust sales volume and price growth. Factors influencing the market include the city’s rapid population growth, fueled by job opportunities in the tech sector and a vibrant culture. The demand for housing has outpaced supply, contributing to rising prices. Additionally, low-interest rates and a strong economy have played roles in driving activity. However, in 2023 we experienced fluctuations as the fed raised rates and the economic conditions, softened. As we look to spring of 2024, we expect to see the impact of our normal seasonality, which means increased buyer activity and more inventory! Sales volume and prices are likely to increase.

If you’re ready to make a move, reach out to Courtney for a comprehensive sales strategy and/or buying approach.

On Trend in Luxury

1. Private sales in the art world are quite common and this phenomenon is being repeated in the real estate world, especially on the high end where some buyers and sellers like the quiet nature of these transactions that are not as widely known to the public. Want to know more about Austin’s private real estate market? Ask Courtney! She’s part of Austin’s most exclusive off-market networks.

2. More than 1,500 homes priced $10 million and above sold in 2023! Check out the Compass Ultra Luxury Report!

3. Closets in luxury homes are getting bigger and more expensive, as homeowners look to display increasingly extensive, curated fashion collections. Large closets that used to cost around $60,000-80,000, now are costing $200-300,000 as they grow in size and grandeur. A recent $1 million closet was a duplex with an elevator and spray-tan booth… chic!  Search #luxurious closets, #celebrity closets or #dream closets for more!
