AUSTIN-ROUND ROCK MSA HOUSING MARKET CONTINUES TO NORMALIZE AS PRICE GROWTH SLOWS, INVENTORY RISES

CENTRAL TEXAS HOUSING REPORT

AUSTIN, TX — The Austin-Round Rock MSA housing market continued to trend towards more normal and sustainable levels in July, according to the Austin Board of REALTORS® July 2022 Central Texas Housing Market Report. Median price grew by only 8% year over year to $515,000, a record for the month of July but the first-time home price growth has been in the single digits since June 2020. The region’s housing inventory reached 2.7 months — the highest level of inventory since November 2018.

“In every aspect of our market REALTORS® are seeing positive signs that Austin’s housing market continues to normalize,” Cord Shiflet, 2022 ABoR president, said. “On top of rising housing inventory, home price growth is much closer to the 4-5% annual growth that is typical for a healthy market. In addition, homes sold slightly below list price for the first time since December 2020, proving that buyers are gaining negotiating power in the market.”
