Another week is in the books. 2016 will be gone before we know it. As I mature (get older) it seems time goes by faster and faster. I remember my parents saying this 40 years back and just couldn't understand how what they were saying could be true. Just a few weeks ago I was able to celebrate my parents 63rd anniversary.
The trend that began in June continues. Inventory continues to build. We began the year with available inventory at around5000 single family homes.The inventory level built in what I would call a normal spring trend until June when it started to escalate rapidly. Today there are8328 single family homesfor sale. The number of homes under contract and closed has remained fairly steady. Here are the numbers.
Available = 8328 Under Contract = 4656 Sold/Closed Last 30 Days = 2436
Every neighborhood has it's own trend line. If you are interested I'd be happy to analyze your neighborhood and home's trend line. I look forward to hearing from you.

"We moved to the Austin area in early 2017 and Violet was instrumental in helping us find our first home. She was readily available to show us neighborhoods and homes as well as taking our calls and answering questions. She helped us throughout the entire process and always had resources & statistics for us to review. My husband is a finance guy -- so he appreciated having numbers to analyze as well as home-price comparisons between neighborhoods. She was attentive to our preferences and made great efforts to satisfy each one.
We were both new to Austin and to the process of buying a new home, after having rented for numerous years. Violet is very knowledgeable as to the process of buying a home and we didn't have any uncertainty about what to expect or what was next. Violet is also a great resource as to each neighborhood including details as to the schools, shopping & community.
She is extremely thoughtful and caring! For instance once we closed & moved, she helped us find a table for our kitchen.
We have recommended Violet to our family and friends. Now that we are settled into our new home & neighborhood, we sort of miss our weekend house-hunting adventures with Violet!"
