Austin MSA outpaces City of Austin Single Family Sales

During the first half of 2019 sales experienced strong growth in the Austin MSA but declined in the City of Austin. ABOR President Kevin Scanlan explained that the limited housing inventory (less than 2 months supply) in June and the increase in home prices combined to reduce sales in the City of Austin. This limited inventory and increase in prices has pushed more and more buyers to the suburbs.
