Median home price helps us see the distribution of multi-family properties sold and does not really give us an indication of the increase or decrease in a particular property’s market value. To analyze market value, we’d have to take an in depth look at a neighborhood. If you’re looking for something like that, please check out our Austin Property Values Report.
