Austin Housing Market Conditions

Thanks in part to national media coverage highlighting its stable job growth and thriving cultural center, Austin has become a popular city among Texas natives and out-of-state transplants alike. Because it is a big city with a small town feel, the homes for sale in Austin span nearly every common single family home price range. The current market conditions certainly reflect this; take, for example, Austin real estate’s second quarter stats in 2009.

First, it’s important to note that Austin neighborhoods are divided into around a dozen MLS areas, each with its own median home price. Without identifying the exact location of each area (your agent will be happy to do that for you), a quick look at the stats (as of the Q2 report) in each of them follows:

MLS Area 1A: $574,900/Current listings: 110/Foreclosures: 0/Months of Inventory: 7.9
MLS Area 1B/Median Price: $799,000/Current Listings: 242/Foreclosures: 2/Months of Inventory: 14.7
MLS Area 2/Median Price: $270,000/Current Listings: 125/Foreclosures: 1/Months of Inventory: 5.2
