Market Minute

After this week’s ice storm, it might not feel like it, but Austin’s spring real estate market is right around the corner. Typically Austin experiences an uptick in sales volume from mid-February to July. These are the 4 things that buyers will be looking for in their next home. 


Location is the single most important determination of value. Homes with close proximity to downtown Austin, on the water or located in coveted school districts remain some of the highest valued homes in our market.


Homes in Austin hit all-time price records last year and have experienced a correction since that time. Today’s buyers are slowing entering the market, but are looking for value. They want to negotiate and some flexibility on contract terms.


Larger homes with more functional spaces are highly sought after given that more people are working, exercising and studying from home. Features that command the extra dollars include gyms, pools, outdoor living areas, bars, and dedicated office space.



Homes that are completely updated are commanding an extra premium because it’s difficult to find reliable contractors to do renovation work. Ask me how to leverage Compass Concierge to do any make-ready work before listing to give you the BEST opportunity for the HIGHEST price.
