Market Minute


AUSTIN, TX — In 2022, the median price for a home in the Austin-Round Rock MSA set a new annual record of $503,000, according to the December 2022 and Year-End Central Texas Housing Market Report released by the Austin Board of REALTORS®. Despite this record, the housing market continued shifting towards buyers as home sales declined 18.3% to 33,547 homes sold last year and inventory increased, with homes on the market for 31 days, 11 days more than in 2021.

How do these statistics translate the buying and selling experience in Austin today?

BUYERS – You will likely find more properties to choose from than over the past two years. You’ll also notice that sellers are more eager to work with you on terms like closing dates, rate buy downs, and repairs.

SELLERS – There is a little more competition out there so yo have to do more to get your property in tip-top shape to attract buyers. In many cases prices aren’t as high as they once were but with limited sales in some areas, the “new values” are still being defined.

These are general trends, each neighborhood is different and has it’s own hyper-local market. If you want to know more about your specific property or buying strategy, give me a call. Courtney 512-809-5495
