Ruth Ann on Real Estate

I hope you enjoy my thoughts on real estate, market statistics, how-to's, and pieces I find interesting on buying, selling, remodeling, new construction, investing, and saving your resources.

Thanks for taking the time to read my posts. Feedback is always welcome/encouraged. Feel free to ask questions. About me: My business is primarily residential real estate (helping buyers, sellers, landlords & tenants), and I generally work with referred clients. I love real estate because I learn something new every day and get to work with great people. I am blogging so I can share some of my insight and experiences with those of you who want to buy or sell. Enjoy!

Single Family Average and Median Home Prices, August 2009 Stats

September 15th, 2009

Single-Family Homes Update (Houston Association of Realtors)

At $160,880, the median sales price for single-family homes reached the third highest level of 2009, up 0.6 percent from August 2008, when it was $159,900. August also marked the fourth consecutive monthly increase in the median price. The national single-family median price reported by NAR is $178,300, illustrating the continued higher value and lower cost of living that the Houston market offers consumers. The average price of single-family homes in August was $213,396, slipping 4.2 percent from one year earlier.

August sales of single-family homes in Houston totaled 5,058, down 10.1 percent from August 2008, and accounted for the 24th consecutive monthly drop. However, on a month-over-month basis, that volume is the third highest of 2009, and the 10.1 percent decline is the second smallest fluctuation of the year following July’s 6.1 percent (corrected) slide.
