Austin-Area Home Sales and Sales Dollar Volume Set October Record

Despite a dip in September, the Austin-area housing market rebounded big time in October. In fact, according to the October 2018 Central Texas Housing Market report released by the Austin Board of REALTORS®, both home sales and sales dollar volume were the highest on record for any October. These numbers indicate a strong demand for single-family homes and, while inventory did slightly increase across the market, there is still not enough supply to support the demand. What should you know as a resident of the area? Here's a look at the details:


  • Austin-Round Rock MSA
    • 2,347 home sales - a 4.3 percent increase from October 2017 AND the highest number of sales for any October
    • $900 million in sales dollar volume – an 8.8 percent increase year-over-year
    • $308,355 median home sales price - a 7.5 percent increase from October 2017
    • 2,871 new listings – a 3.7 percent increase year-over-year
    • 7,434 active listings – an 8.2 percent increase year-over-year
    • 2,444 pending sales – a 2.8 percent increase from October 2017
    • 2.9 months of inventory
  • Williamson County
    • 780 home sales – a 0.5 percent decrease year-over-year
    • $242 million in sales dollar volume – a 3.3 percent increase since last October
