Summer's Here, Happy Memorial Day Weekend

May 26, 2023

Weekly Austin Market Update

You might have noticed that it’s taking homes in your neighborhood a little longer to sell…our average days on market is up across the MSA. However prices are holding! There are exceptions, but in general Austin are prices are remain strong. Why? Demand is the main driver- there are still more people moving to the area than the number of homes available. Builders have been prudent, limiting the number of homes they put on the market – the building environment has been a bit tricky in the last few years and builders are approaching this dynamic time period with caution. Here’s what we’ve seen:
  • Decline in permits for single-family, two to four unit, and multi-family homes.
  • Increased financing costs and slower demand.
  • High land and construction costs.
  • Pressure on affordability and efficiency in the building process.
Want to know more about the current building environment impacts you, building a new home or the value of your property, let’s connect this weekend! Courtney 512-809-5495.
