HAR Report: Houston Area Home Sales Set New Records
Houston real estate held to record territory in June with buyers continuing to seize upon historically low interest rates as they purchased homes from among a limited supply. Despite the strong buying activity, the pace was slightly slower in the year-over-year comparison.
According to the latest Houston Association of Realtors (HAR) Market Update, single-family homes sales were up 13.6 percent compared to last June, with 10,638 units sold versus 9,362 a year earlier. That becomes the market’s thirteenth consecutive positive month of sales. On a year-to-date basis, home sales remain 25.9 percent ahead of 2020’s record pace.
Sales of all property types totaled 13,090 – the greatest volume of all time. That is up 16.9 percent from June 2020. Total dollar volume for the month climbed 43.8 percent to a record-setting $4.8 billion.
