Incredibly low inventory is driving a lot of what we see in the latest stats for the Austin area real estate market.

Take a look at the data and then watch the video of Krisstina Wise giving you the lowdown on what it means.

  • $259,434 – Average Sales Price of single family home in Austin
  • 7,274 – number of single family homes available for sale – 6% more than Feb 2012, but 20% fewer than March 2011
  • Fewest number of homes on the market this year to date since 2002! This is a 10 year low!
  • What this means for Sellers
