What’s going on in a neighborhood near you? I have selected some random neighborhoods in Austin and cities surrounding it, to provide some current real estate market data. If there is an area or neighborhood you would like me to spotlight – just let me know.

Overall, the Austin market is going strong into 2011 strong. Neighborhoods averaging 3 months or less are considered to be seller’s markets, because there is a demand to live in them. Neighborhoods averaging 4 to 6 months are considered neutral markets. Six months or more time on the market is considered to be buyer’s markets. The exceptions to this rule: luxury properties over $800,000, simply due to less buyers and new homes under construction where the houses are actively marketed before or during building.
