ATX Market in a Minute, March 2018

The Austin housing market continues to show increased demand, with double-digit percent increases in sales in March 2018 according to the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR). The Austin-Round Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) experienced a 10.5 percent increase in sales compared to the same time last year, the March 2018 Central Texas Housing Market Report found.

“Last month, 2,714 single-family homes were sold in the five-county Central Texas region, which is more sales than any March we’ve seen on record,” Steve Crorey, 2018 president of the Austin Board of REALTORS®, said. “This type of growth early in the year indicates a strong summer selling season ahead. Those who are interested in buying or selling a home this summer should seek out the services of a REALTOR®.”

In the Austin-Round Rock MSA, the median price of single-family homes increased 3.5 percent to $305,233. Housing inventory levels decreased 0.2 months from March 2017 to 2.2 months of inventory.

“Historically, it’s common for some homes to be on the market for 50 days or more, even in markets with strong housing demand,” Crorey, said. “Within the city of Austin and other local markets with limited inventory, homes are spending a fraction of time on the market—as little as two weeks in some areas. This is an indicator of just how competitive it’s become to purchase a home in and around Austin.”

In the Austin-Round Rock MSA, homes priced between $150,000-$250,000 stayed on the market less than 50 days on average. In the city of Austin, single-family homes in this price range spent, on average, between 27-35 days on the market in March 2018 due to the critically low supply of homes within Austin.

“Demand for homes priced below $250,000 is driving the emergence of new submarkets like Manor and Del Valle, where builders can construct homes at a lower cost,” Vaike O’Grady, Austin regional director for Metrostudy, said. “We’re also seeing creative land plans that provide common area open space to offset smaller lot and home sizes. Attached single-family homes are also coming to the market to meet buyer demand for more affordable housing.”

Making Friends and Selling Homes

We love our clients! Especially Andrea and Shane Percy!

They purchased their first home together with the help of Brooke Hunt in 2013. It was a brand new home and in the time that they were there, they grew their beautiful family… which means they needed more space! They recently called the Hunt Team to sell their home and help them find the right fit for their next house.

It took a lot of searching… but the perfect house finally came on the market and they closed on their new home at the end of December. Michael and Rebecca, the Hunt Team’s Buyer’s Specialists, were both able to assist in ensuring that was a smooth close.

Andrea: “3 years ago I was boasting at how amazing the Hunt Team was. Last weekend, we signed on our new home. While I don’t want to keep moving, I love talking to Brooke Hunt, Mike, and Rebecca A. Hunt daily! They truly work miracles, and besides picking the house, they’ve literally done EVERYTHING else! I know there are a lot of options, but they’re the absolute best!!”

The Hunt Team

Brooke Hunt, who is now our Listing Specialist, worked tirelessly and got their previous home sold!

We LOVE that our work connects us with great people like the Percys–who are not just clients, but friends! Thank you Percy Family for trusting us and allowing us to be apart of such a momental time in your life!

February North Texas Real Estate Trends

We don’t want you to be uniformed with the current market, unsure of where to go to find this information or who to trust for up-to-date data… so the Hunt Team will be releasing monthly reports on the Texas markets, which you can find on this site.

This post will be discussing the prior month’s report (February 2018):

The three most prominent national market trends for residential real estate are the ongoing lack of abundant inventory, the steadily upward movement of home prices and year-over-year declines in home sales. Sales declines are a natural result of there being fewer homes for sale, but higher prices often indicate higher demand leading to competitive bidding. Markets are poised for increased supply, so there is hope that more sellers will take advantage of what appears to be a ready and willing buyer base.

In February, prevailing mortgage rates continued to rise. This has a notable impact on housing affordability and can leave consumers choosing between higher payments or lower-priced homes. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, the average rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with a 20 percent down payment that qualify for backing by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac rose to its highest level since January 2014. A 4.5 or 4.6 percent rate might not seem high to those with extensive real estate experience, but it is newly high for many potential first-time home buyers. Upward rate pressure is likely to continue as long as the economy fares well.

Because of the split-plan, the big master-suite has privacy in the back of the home. There are three bedrooms downstairs and one upstairs.
