Update on the Austin Real Estate Market
--December 2013, by Carl Shurr
Goodbye 2013, hello 2014! While it was an amazing year for America's best performing city with the 2nd lowest unemployment rate, I am full speed ahead with holiday spirit, holiday lights and New Years resolutions. Whether yours are to eat healthy, work out, or buy a house, I'm here to help you accomplish at least one of them. Let me know how I can help you ring in the New Year and make the move in 2014.
I just completed my month-end analysis of the Austin real estate marketwhere I compared year-over-year November sales from the Austin Board of REALTORS® with a detailed infographic. I discovered that November is the 30th straight month of home sales volume increases. See our Market Statistics page for a more detailed analysis of the market.
Austin's job and population growth show no signs of slowing down, so 2014 will likely be another competitive year for Austin real estate. This month's historically low inventory is at a critical level of 2.3 months of available homes, and vacant lots are a hot commodity as builders try to ramp up production to meet demand. In most areas, sellers can expect strong interest in their homes, and buyers should be prepared to comp! ete for properties.
Are you ready to buy? Get pre-approved beforehand so sellers will take your offer seriously in this fast-paced, multiple offer market. Let me know what you're looking for and I can start searching for listings before they hit market, as well as ! Pocket Listings that are not in the MLS.
Are you ready to sell? If you plan to sell your home this Spring, you will need to start preparing for the market now. I’d be happy to come by and advise you on staging and preparing your home. Send me the details of your homeand I will prepare a comprehensive analysis of your home's value in today's market, as well as design a marketing plan to get top dollar for your home.
