In light of the recent Statesman article highlighting new construction sales, I thought this would be a good time to update our trending chart for downtown condos.
Combined sales of new construction and resales of downtown Austin condos delivered a seasonally strong 46 transactions representing $26,720,149 total sales volume in March.
Currently there are 95 resales and 197 new construction condos available for sale in the downtown Austin core. That’s not many. Within the past 12 months, we’ve seen 201 resales and 186 new construction sales.
In the chart below, that little red trend line for average resale price per foot gets steeper each month as we see more resales in the top-tier buildings. By this time next year, you will be able to count the total availability of new construction condos on two hands.
March 2012 Resale Statistics
- # of resale transactions = 29 - avg price per foot = $364 - avg sales price to list price (SP/LP) = 97% - avg days on market (DOM) = 32 days - Total resales volume = $12,038,599
