Thanksgiving is now a distant memory, Black Friday came and went, as well as those Cyber Monday deals. We are now creating lists, checking them twice and trying to manage our time in an effort to get everything done in time. When you are looking for a house on your own, you tend to have other things to do on the weekends during the holiday season, especially if you are not really focused on what you want, or what you can afford. Buyers who have agents, have the luxury of having someone else help them, which saves time. Serious buyers are still out there looking. At the end of the day, Buyers looking during the holiday season still need and want to buy, and Sellers, who have a home listed, still need and want to sell.
I love listing homes this time of year for a couple of reasons. The first, is because people tend to have company this time of year, so they are naturally organizing and cleaning. Selling your home is not always a great motivator for cleaning, so knowing Grandma Jean is coming to visit and counting the cobwebs tends to naturally motivate homeowners.
Do you know what the biggest day of the year to start looking for a house is? It’s December 26th — the day after Christmas. That’s my second reason I like listing homes this time of year, because we are ready for December 26th. We have all of the marketing in place and the house is clean and organized. So, as I would say: It’s Showtime!

The summer home selling season is sizzling in Austin real estate news. Market activity set an all-time sales volume in May reaching $1.2 billion, according to the May 2017 Central Texas Housing Market Report released by the Austin Board of REALTORS®. By the numbers, May 2017 single-family housing market statistics in the Austin-Round Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area showed 3,170 Single-family homes sold, which was 9% more than May 2016. The median price for single-family homes was $310,000, an 8% increase over May 2016. The average time on the market was 43 days homes, which was one day less than May 2016.
The key to this market for a buyer is flexibility in terms of location and a solid understanding of budget. Austin is weird and the beauty of that is having a wide variety of home styles to choose from, in a unique mix of neighborhoods.
The key to this Austin real estate market for sellers is also understanding that their home is also unique right now. In some neighborhoods, there may be only one house for sale in a particular price point. This creates a sellers’ market and an opportunity. The Austin housing market has buyers searching within a larger map area these days because of the lack of inventory and will keep looking elsewhere if the home does not show well.
Keeping the house clean and cool in the summer are two of the easiest ways to welcome a buyer, show pride of ownership, and now-a-days represent the neighborhood.
