You are a young couple living in the North Loop and are looking to expand your family, but your starter home just isn’t big enough or is riddled with issues. Your best intentions to renovate evaporated when you realized how much money, time and frustration it will take to get it all done.
Your fixer upper has become a full-fledged money pit and you just need to sell it. Then you realize that selling off a blighted home could take months and you may not get the money you need for it. Luckily Doug Watts with Your Austin Home Buyer is your hometown housing expert, and he can help!
Growth can sometimes feel like a double-edged sword, and Austin has experienced the pros and cons of consistent growth over the last several years. While growth brings prospects for new employment and community offerings, it also brings with it a depleting of resources. No truer is the latter realized than in housing.

Is the Austin Real Estate Market Cooling?
According to a recent Austin Housing Market Report, data shows that there may be a cooling in the market in certain metrics, while other metrics are still white hot:
- Housing inventory continues to decline, with a 4.2% decrease in availability between November and December of 2022.
- Market conditions show that it is still a seller’s market, but the needle continues to move towards a more neutral market.
- New construction continues its freefall, which means you may be more likely to purchase an older home that needs some work.
- Home values are still increasing, but at a slower clip. Average sales time has increased by 100% (from 24 days to 47 days) and gone are the days of homes selling for more than the listing price.
While Austin has experienced a 20% growth in the past 20 years, growth has slowed down.
