Record Sales In 2017

Austin is not only the music capital of the world, but it's also building a reputation to be the new home buying and selling capital of the world. Now, yes, that is just my opinion, but the statistics do support my Austin claim to Home buying fame. For example, here are some useful stats below that would make any investor/home buyer raise their eyebrows.

  • In 2017, the median price in Austin jumped  9.1 percent, to $360,000.

  • Year to date, sales across the region are up 1.7 percent, putting the region on track for an anticipated seventh straight year of record sales .

Whether it's all the out of state people moving to the great state of Texas or a boost in the Texas economy, time will tell. However, if things continue on this path, 2018 will be a great time to buy and invest in Austin and in the surrounding areas.
