Austin-area home sales dip for second consecutive month in August 2014
Bill Evans, 2014 President of the Austin Board of REALTORS¬®, explained, “A majority of Austin-area homes are now priced out of an affordable range for first-time and first-time move up homebuyers, where a significant portion of home sales volume occurs. We need a regulatory environment that supports the development of affordable housing stock for the future stability of our Austin housing market. As we prepare for the new districted Austin City Council this November, ABoR encourages voters to seek leaders that will address our housing and development challenges. The Austin Land Development Code basically needs to be overhauled.”
According to the report, median price for single-family homes jumped 11 percent year-over-year to $247,500 and average price rose nine percent year-over-year to $311,414. Single-family homes continued to sell quickly as they spent an average 42 days on the market, one day fewer than August 2013.
Monthly housing inventory continued to increase in August 2014, rising 0.2 months from the year prior to 3.0 months. While still well below the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University’s balanced housing inventory level of 6.5 months, Austin-area housing inventory levels could continue to rise as much-needed listings enter the market.
In August 2014, active listings jumped 10 percent year-over-year to 6,707 listings and new listings rose four percent during the same time frame to 3,310. In addition, pending sales increased one percent to 2,430 single-family home sales.
Evans concluded, “An increase in new and active listings is giving the market some much needed breathing room, but Austin’s housing inventory is still very low and has few affordable options. The new Land Development Code will be a crucial catalyst to sustainable market growth in 2015 and years to come, but it must be heavily revised in order to create housing options throughout the city that are affordable for all of Austin’s homebuyers.”
