June 2022 Market Statistics
AUSTIN, TX — According to the Austin Board of REALTORS® June and Mid-Year 2022 Central Texas Housing
Market Report, a triple-digit gain in active listings year over year pushed housing inventory levels over two months in the Austin-Round Rock MSA for the first time since November 2019. Combined with a dip in residential home sales activity and a slowing pace of home price growth in June, the data indicates a decelerating Austin housing market that is beginning to return to pre-COVID normalcy.
Last month across the MSA, residential home sales declined 20.3% year over year to 3,441 closed sales as the median price rose 13%, setting a record of $537,475 for the month of June. Sales dollar volume dropped 9.9% to
$2,301,865,479 while new listings jumped 19.6% to 6,160 listing.
The number of homes on the market skyrocketed 217.8% to 7,090 active listings, causing housing inventory to jump to 2.1 months of inventory, up 1.5 months from last June. While pending sales dropped 31.6% to 2,887
transactions, homes still went under contract quickly, spending an average of 18 days on the market or four more days than June 2021.
