—Westside Sales Stats

March produced solid numbers for our Westside at Buttercup Creek neighborhood with:  only 4 homes for sale (out of 1,427); an incredible 15 pendings (under contract but not closed yet); 79% Activity Ratio (future indicator of market); and 8 home sales where our sellers got 2.3% more/sf than 2018 sellers.

Our neighborhood has felt the surge in home sales like most of Austin has seen since the beginning of February.  There was concern about a slowdown, both nationally and locally, at the end of 2018, but we’ve shaken that off with the announcement of Apple adding to their campus and lower mortgage rates the past few months.

April is the best month to list your home for sale (Sell your home in April) and the Thomas & Kauffman Team is offering $1,000 back to sellers at closing who list with us by 6/1/2019 (Coupon).   Here is a part of our plan to sell homes:  Marketing Plan.

Overall, we are having a good start to 2019 with mostly green categories (ie-trending positive) like: only .90 months of inventory; Activity Ratio of 53%; 8 pending home sales (vs. 5/mo avg in 2018); and 8 home sales (vs. our 6.33/mo last year).  The only negatives were price/sf and higher days on market for sellers. Those were driven by 2 of our sales having unusually high days on market (208 between them) and 1 of them over 4,000 sf (larger homes take longer to sell).

2019 starts off well for home sales in our Westside @ Buttercup Creek neighborhood with mostly green categories:  Only 4 homes for sale is good for our slowest month of the year (too much inventory causes price drops); we maintained the 1.0 month of inventory from December; our Activity ratio shot up to 73% (from a 31% avg last year); and our 4 home sellers got 100% of their asking price in only 15 days at $140.57/sf (+3.6% over 2018 prices).  Our only real negatives were the high days on market for our pendings and only 4 home sales (we averaged 6.33/mo last year…but, January is slow, so 4 isn’t too bad).

 

Are you curious about the value of your home?  For those home sellers who aren’t sure about selling this year, or just want a general idea of their home’s value, I recommend the “ Market Snapshot” program. This free service pulls data from our MLS (Multiple Listing Service) for similar homes in your neighborhood on a regular basis (every 2, 4, 6, 8, or 12 weeks) and emails it to the homeowner. Create one yourself for your home here: Market Snapshot. It takes about 30 minutes to receive your report. Or, let me know if you–or someone you know–wants me to create a Market Snapshot for their home.
