Market Performance in Houston in June 2021 - Houston Housing Market


Overall observation, HAR "Consumers continue to snap up homes despite tight inventory and record prices"

New historic record highs for single-family home sales in Houston continue with buyers taking advantage of the still  low-interest rates in the midst of a record low inventory. In year over year, though, the buying pace was slightly slower.

Dominating sales volume, however, were homes priced $750,000+ followed by the $500,000-$750,000 price range.

Total dollar volume for June also was a record-setting $4.8 billion with sales of all property types (single-family, condos, townhomes, etc.) totaling 13,090—the greatest volume of all time.
