Houston Market Update

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

HOUSTON — (August 8, 2018) —Houston home sales showed no let-up in July, but the pace was not enough to rival the record-setting volume and pricing set in June. Inventory remained constrained at a 4.2-months supply, and the lease market saw waning consumer interest.
According to the latest monthly report from the Houston Association of REALTORS® (HAR), 8,108 single-family homes sold in July compared to 7,433 a year earlier, accounting for a 9.1-percent increase. On a year-to-date basis, home sales are running 3.4 percent ahead of 2017’s record volume.

The single-family home median price (the figure at which half of the homes sold for more and half sold for less) rose nearly six percent to $243,500, and the average price increased 2.4 percent to $305,910. Both represent the highest figures ever for a July. The strongest segment of the market consisted of homes priced in the $250,000 to $499,999 range, which shot up 21.0 percent. The luxury market – homes priced at $750,000 and above – rose 6.3 percent.

“Consumers are keeping the Houston housing market one of the most vibrant in the U.S., despite low inventory and concerns about affordability,” said HAR Chair Kenya Burrell-VanWormer with JPMorgan Chase. “Much of that is reflective of a healthy job market that continues to draw new hires to Houston from across the country and around the world.”
