Happy New Year Austin homeowners and home buyers. Here are my top 5 predictions for the Austin real estate market for 2022 but first let’s review the real estate statistics covering 2021 for the Austin, TX MLS area. It was another great year for real estate in the area.

The number of sales was down 5.7% to 3,756 sales but up 2.9% sales for the year with 44,871 sales overall.

The average months of inventory remained at less than 1 month. That means if no additional homes come on the market, it would take less than a month for all the homes currently for sale to be sold. A real estate market with 4-6 months of inventory is considered balanced between buyers and sellers so we are still in a strong seller’s market.

The average…

Let’s get to the real estate statistics for Austin, Texas. In November, 2021 there were 392,976 Single Family Homes sold in the Austin area which was down 8.6% from 3,256 sales in November, 2020. The average dollars per square foot increased 32% to $272.70. The average price increased 25.1% to $587,380 and the median price increased to $472,490 which was an increase of 30%.

Let’s talk about predictions for 2022. Keep in mind nobody predicted what’s happened in the last 2 years. Probably the only thing we can be sure of is something else is going to happen out of the blue that’s going to completely change everything.

The best advice I can give you for the next 3 months is to buckle up and hold on tight. I’m not saying we are going…

Let’s review the Austin real estate statistics. In October there were 3,353 homes sold which was down 16.4% from October, 2020. The months of inventory is slowly increasing to 1.3 months from 1.1 last year. This is the most important supply and demand statistic to watch and as we head into the end of the year and January, it will tell us where the market is heading. Keep in mind anything under 4-6 months of inventory is considered a sellers’ market so we have a long way to go and buyers have to be careful not to overestimate the market moderating to mean the market is crashing.

The average sold price increased 20.6% to $555,124 and the median sold price increased 25% to $450,000. This is also an increase from September’s median price…

Before I get into the monthly market statistics let’s talk about what many potential home sellers are asking; should they sell now or wait until next spring. As always, I wish I had a crystal ball and trying to time any market whether it’s the real estate market or the stock market is tricky. I also want to say you can always reach out to me to talk about your specific situation with no pressure. One of the nice things about our company is we have plenty of business so we don’t need to scare you into selling now if that’s not what’s best for you.

Here is something you should consider. To a large extent real estate comes down to supply and demand. When buyers have fewer homes to choose from prices tend to go up. When buyers have more homes…

I’m going to talk about changes we are seeing in the Austin real estate market, review the most recent real estate statistics and talk about what we expect to see in the near future.

We do know why prices have risen so dramatically this year. It’s because there have been so few homes for sale, that’s no secret. When a home is called “Active” it means it is not under contract, you can actually buy that house. If we go back 2 years there were 7,133 Active homes for sale in June, 2019. In June, 2020 we dropped to 5,300. By January of this year, we were barely over 1,000 but slowly the inventory of homes is increasing. In June, 2021 there were 2,265 Active homes.As I shoot this video in mid-July there are over 3,000 Active homes on…
