Housing Activity
Summary & Interactive Data

The Texas A&M University Real Estate Data Center publishes a series of data about housing activity including months of inventory, home sales, dollar volume of home sales, median price and average price. The data is provided for four geographies: Texas, Austin MSA, Travis County and the Austin Local Market Area.

Like the other sections of this dashboard, static and interactive features are available on this page. Navigation tools on the left hand side support bar allow easy movement between the pages of the economy dashboard and other sections of the dashboard.

These data sets are more complicated so we have provided a list of key terms, accessible on every page, to help with clarity. As will be noted throughout this dashboard, some data sets have a lag time showing the impacts of COVID-19.

Data Notes: Housing statistics are based on listing data from over 50 MLS (Multiple Listing Service) systems in Texas. Statistics for each geography were calculated based on listings of properties physically located within the mapped area presented with the statistics. Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA): Based on the multi-county area specified by The Office of Management & Budget in 2013. Local Market Area (LMA): An area defined by the local Association/Board of REALTORS representing a logical market of homes that can be grouped together for meaningful statistical reporting.

Summary Data

This data set is available to you at four geographies. To select a data set, click on Texas, Austin MSA, Travis County or Austin Local Market Area, and the active data set will be in orange. The data cards below show information about the previous month, the current month and the percent change between the two, providing a quick reference to how many evictions are occurring. A percent change in green with a yellow arrow indicates the indicator is moving in a positive direction for the economy. A percent change in yellow with a red arrow indicates the indicator is moving in a negative direction.
