Austin's December 2023 Real Estate Statistics


AUSTIN, TEXAS ~ December 2023 housing market statistics have been released by the Austin Board of Realtors® (ABoR).

For the 13th consecutive month, the Austin-Round Rock MSA median sales price did not increase - it decreased slightly versus December 2022.

What do these metrics indicate for those looking to make a real estate move in the Austin area?
  • If you're looking to purchase a home or investment property, now is a good time to take advantage of the softer median home price and increased inventory. If you'd like to speak with my clients who have recently closed or who are under contract, they are happy to share their experience working with me. If you're looking for financing options, I can also connect you to my trusted lending network which can help you explore options - consultations are free!

  • If you're selling you're still in a solid position to make a timely move even though there's increased competition and homes are remaining on the market longer than last year. Contact me and I can provide you with a complimentary, current competitive market analysis for your home. This will help you understand what your home is likely to sell for given the changing dynamics of the Central Texas real estate market.
