Not only are we giving you the latest stats on the Austin condo market, but we're ALSO inviting you to our next Condo Crawl event. Keeping reading for all the details.

Here are the top five things to know about the Austin condo market this week...

Sales

1. Typically, the second quarter (April - June) has the highest number of condo sales.

This year, the third quarter (July - September) was a record third quarter for condo sales, with 759, as buyers deferred their activity during April - May of this year.  

Condo sales in 2Q20 were 183 units below the prior year sales, and it is likely those missing transactions will show up in increased sales over the next nine months.

Inventory

2. Inventory is at an all-time high of 831 units as of September 2020.

This is driven by the lack of 2Q20 typical sales, and lots of new buildings.  

3. The last time inventory hit record levels was three years ago in 3Q17.  

Price per square foot ended up higher by 3.7%, 10.2%, and 14.9%, one, two, and three years later, respectively. The sales/inventory ratio was similarly situated around ~3x.  

Price per square foot

4. Condo price per square foot for September 2020 sales was $293, up 4.3% year-over-year.

The median sale price was $322k.
