Note: I’m tracking data for many local markets around the U.S. I think it is especially important to watch inventory this year.
For the Austin-Round Rock area: Central Texas Housing Market Report; July 2021

Despite the dip, the five-county MSA was just 445 homes shy of breaking the all-time home sales record set in July 2020.
