Home Sales Start Strong in Fourth Quarter Early demand for single-family homes in the fourth quarter led to a record-breaking month of home sales for Central Texas, according to the October 2018 Central Texas Housing Market Report released today by the Austin Board of REALTORS®. Single-family home sales in the Austin-Round Rock MSA were the highest on record for any October, generating more than $900 million in sales dollar volume—another record for October. “Over the past several years, Austin's housing stock and home sales have become opposing forces that are widening our housing gap,” Steve Crorey, president of the Austin Board of REALTORS®, said. “We saw slight inventory increases across the market, particularly in the suburbs, but they’re not enough to offset ongoing demand.” Crorey added, “With the strong passage of the…

Home Sales Growth Stalls in September, Remains Strong Year-to-Date AUSTIN, TX – Single-family home sales growth across the Austin-Round Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) was flat last month but did not impact strong year-to-date home sales numbers, according to data released today by the Austin Board of REALTORS® in its September 2018 Central Texas Housing Market Report. “Austin-area housing market activity has bucked the trend of a cool-weather slowdown over the last several years, maintaining much of the momentum from the summer months through the end of the year,” Steve Crorey, 2018 president of the Austin Board of REALTORS®, said. “Home sales growth declined five percent last September, so it’s good to see that the area housing market held steady in September 2018.

Preparing to Sell

Selling
Selling your home is more than hiring a realtor to stick a sign out front. There are a lot of preparations you should make to ensure you get the best offer possible in the shortest time. Repair. Just because you’ve gotten used to the cracks in the walls and the rattles in the radiators doesn’t mean a buyer will too.
