Eleven Oaks Realty is proud to present their May 2019 Austin Real Estate Price Report measuring activity in the Austin single family home market.
Austin Median Home Price Up 8%
The biggest story this month: median home prices in Austin up again this month. The median price of an Austin home in May 2018 was $400,000 compared to $430,000 in May 2019, up 8% ($30,000) in year over year numbers. For another month, we’ve seen median price outpace the previous year. Median price increases have steadied, but are still on the upswing.
Median home price helps us see the distribution of homes sold and does not really give us an indication of the increase or decrease in a particular home’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 Home Values Report.
