Texas condominium and townhome sales decline, median price increases from 2019 to 2020
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas condominium and townhome sales from July 2019 to June 2020 declined compared to the same period the previous year, according to the Texas Condominium Sales Report released today by Texas Realtors. The number of condominiums sold decreased 9.8% to 11,875 sales, while townhome sales declined 0.2% to 8,616 sales. The report analyzes condominium and townhome data for the entire state as well as Austin-Round Rock, Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, El Paso, Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land, McAllen-Edinburg-Mission and San Antonio-New Braunfels metropolitan statistical areas. "The slight decrease in sales volume is likely more a reflection of supply than demand," said Cindi Bulla, chairman of Texas Realtors. "These properties remain a popular and rapidly growing sector of the Texas housing market. As the Texas population continues to boom and affordability challenges increase, condominiums and townhomes provide prime options for homeowners seeking closer locales to popular attractions and essential services at all price points." Inventory for Texas condominiums increased 0.3 months to 5.3 months of inventory, while the inventory of townhomes declined 0.6 months to 4.3 months of inventory. According to the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University, a market balanced between supply and demand has between 6.0 and 6.5 months of inventory. In the first six months of the year, Texas condominiums spent an average of 70 days on the market, while townhomes spent an average of 64 days on the market. From July 2019 to June 2020, the total dollar volume of condominiums and townhomes sold in Texas was $5,259,859,880, with $2,997,908,303 in condominium sales and $2,261,951,577 in townhome sales. Sales price increased moderately for both condominiums and townhomes. Statewide, the year-to-date median sales price as of June 2020 was $192,000 for condominiums, an annual increase of 1.6%, and $230,000 for townhomes, an annual increase of 1.3%. The average price-per-square foot during this time frame was $200 for condominiums and $143 for townhomes. Bulla concluded, "From first time homebuyers looking to purchase a starter property to retirees looking for less upkeep, condominiums and townhomes offer an affordable price point in high-density urban areas."
