Despite seeing a decline in the number of single-family homes on the market, the median price of homes is at an all-time high, according to the May market statistics report released by the Austin Board of Realtors. The new record median price comes in at $407,400, yet the May 2019 Central Texas Housing Market report shows declines for both new and active listings in the city of Austin. There was also a 3.4% drop in home sales in Austin, but the surrounding areas saw immense growth. A lot of this comes from a lack of supply in affordable housing options for first-time homebuyers with specific wants and needs. Since they can’t find property that has everything they’re looking for in Austin, they’re setting their sights on properties in the suburbs of the city. Let’s take a closer look at some of the communities that are close to our hearts and what the current market standings mean for them.
