October 2015 Houston Housing Market – Update
October sales of single-family homes had an anticipated drop compared to October 2014 in the Houston housing market. A slower housing market is typical in the fall in Houston. Inventory levels remained steady at 3.5 months, meaning if no other homes were listed, the homes on the market right now would be depleted in 3.5 months. Houston housing inventories are well below the national average of 4.8 months, supporting a strong Houston housing market.
Home prices reached record high levels in October. The average single-family home sales price rose 3.7% over last year to just over $271,600. October continued to show quick home sale turnaround; 53 days to a sale on average. All indicators point to a more ‘normalized’ Houston housing market, supported by low inventory levels, high demand, and a diverse Houston economy.
