While inventory improved slightly to a 2.9-months supply, the month of May also saw home prices reach new record highs, with sales among homes priced between $250,000 and $500,000 showing the greatest strength. Days on Market, or the number of days a home takes to sell, reached the lowest level of all time – 46.
Single-family home sales totaled 7,553 units in June, up 4.5 percent compared to June 2013, according to the latest monthly report prepared by the Houston Association of Realtors (HAR). New listings rose 6.7 percent, helping nudge inventory up from May’s 2.8-months supply to 2.9 months. However, that is still lower than the 3.3-months supply of inventory in June 2013 and significantly below the national supply of 5.6 months of inventory.
The average price of a single-family home jumped 6.6 percent year-over-year to $283,697. The median price—the figure at which half the homes sold for more and half for less—soared 11.3 percent to $214,000. Both are historic highs for Houston.
“June’s positive sales performance is a testament to the strength of the Houston housing market,” said HAR Chair Chaille Ralph with Heritage Texas Properties. “We were thrilled to see home sales rebound after May’s decline and we hope that as new listings come onto the market and home construction continues, inventory levels will rise to a point where we can truly say that balance has been restored.”
Foreclosure property sales reported in the HAR Multiple Listing Service (MLS) fell again, diving 46.6 percent compared to June 2013. Foreclosures now comprise just 4.4 percent of all property sales, down from an 8.4 percent share a year earlier. The median price of foreclosures jumped 20.0 percent to $108,000.
June sales of all property types totaled 9,099 units, a 5.3-percent increase compared to the same month last year. Total dollar volume for properties sold rose 12.9 percent to $2.4 billion versus $2.2 billion a year earlier.
