AUSTIN-ROUND ROCK MSA HOUSING MARKET POSTS STRONG FEBRUARY, MARKET POISED FOR BIG YEAR

 

CENTRAL TEXAS HOUSING REPORT

AUSTIN, TX — According to the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR) February Central Texas Housing Report, closed listings increased 11.3% year over year to 2,581 sales across the Austin-Round Rock MSA last month. Combined with a new record median price, which rose 27.9% year over year to an all-time high of $499,995, 2022 is shaping up to be a big year for the MSA’s housing market.

“February was a very active month for our housing market as sales price records continue to be broken,” Cord Shiflet, 2022 ABoR president, said. “We’re hearing from economists that last month’s numbers are a potential harbinger of a big year ahead even as our market continues to deal with insufficient supply compared to demand resulting in the steady cycle of home price increases.”
