Austin Board of REALTORS® releases real estate statistics for April 2013
AUSTIN, Texas – May 21, 2013 – According to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) report released today by the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR), the volume of Austin-area home sales continues to rise as April became the 23rd straight month of year-over-year sales volume increases, and April saw its most home sales since 2004.
According to the report, 2,563 single-family homes were sold in the Austin area in April 2013, which is 32 percent more than April 2012. On average, homes spent 50 days on the market, which is a decrease of 19 days from one year prior.
Cathy Coneway, 2013 Chairman of the Austin Board of REALTORS®, explained, “On average, Austin-area homes are now selling in only six weeks. Buyers should think hard about the type of home, features and amenities they’re looking for and then be prepared to move quickly once they find a home that fits that description.”
The total dollar volume of single-family properties sold was $794,158,365, or 52 percent higher. The market also featured 10 percent more new listings, 25 percent fewer active listings and 20 percent more pending sales in April 2013 compared to the prior year.
In April 2013, the median price for Austin-area homes increased eight percent more than the same month last year to $227,250. Additionally, the market featured 2.7 months of inventory in April 2013, which is 1.3 months less than April 2012.
“It’s good to see a 10 percent increase in new home listings,” Coneway adds. “As Austin-area home sales continue to increase and the time homes spend on the market continues to shorten, it is integral that our housing supply also increases to meet this surging demand.”
