Austin Housing Market
Central Texas home prices hit an all-time high last month, while sales set a record for the month of April, the Austin Board of Realtors said Thursday.
Local real estate agents say the market remains fast-paced, with housing demand continuing to outpace supply. April marked the eighth straight month of annual home sale increases, board officials said, noting that housing affordability continues to be a challenge.
The median price jumped 14.4 percent last month compared with the prior April, with half of the homes selling for more than $274,000 and half selling for less, the board said.
