The Austin real estate market continues to thrive as 2016 saw some record numbers.

Last year, the greater Austin area experienced record home sales with consumers buying over 29,500 single-family homes, a 3.9% increase from 2015.  The average home sold for $284,000 and for the first time ever, the Austin area dollar volume topped 10 Billion. 

City of Austin – 2016 sales were up 1.7% from 2015.  The median price was $340,000, up 5.8%

Travis County – the median home price jumped by 6.5% to $330,000

Williamson County – they saw a 2.5% hike in sales with a median home price of $260,000, up 6.2% from 2015

Hays County – sales were up by 7.3% with a median home price of $243,000, up 5.2% from 2015

Outlook for 2017 – All indications point to 2017 being another strong year but not maybe as record setting as 2016.  For several years, job growth has been a major factor for the strong real estate market.  Currenlty, the area job growth rate is over 2% with many buyers still moving into the Tri-County area.
