January Houston Housing Market – Update
January still showed much of what we saw in 2014. Home sales and prices continued to rise, while inventory levels remained low. However, most industry experts expect to see the hot sales market cool on the heels of lowered oil prices and low inventory levels. January saw the greatest increase of home sales in the $250,000-$500,000 price ranges, while homes priced over $500,000 saw the greatest decline in sales.
In January 2015, inventory remained at a low 2.6 months of supply. This means that if no other homes were listed, the homes on the market right now would be depleted in two and a half months. Northeast Houston is seeing even lower levels of inventory. Compared to the nation’s average 4.4 months of supply, all indicators point to a still hot Houston housing market. Average home sales prices jumped to 7% year over year, reaching almost $260,000.
