According to the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR) October 2021 Central Texas Housing Report, the Austin-Round Rock MSA housing market remains on track for a record-breaking year, even as the market continues its calming trend. Home sales across the MSA decreased 12.1% to 3,250 closings compared to October 2020 as the median sales price grew 24.7% year over year to $455,000 setting a record for the month of October.
“We are beginning to see a glimpse into what buyers and sellers can expect in our housing market moving forward,” Susan Horton, 2021 ABoR president, said. “More new listings are hitting the market, a trend that we have seen continuously for the past eight months, and when coupled with fewer closings across the MSA, prospective buyers have more options. With the market remaining stable — but still on track for a record year — it is an exciting time for REALTORS® who continue to be the best advisers to both buyers and sellers when it comes to navigating one of the most desirable housing markets in the country.”
