An ongoing theme in the Austin real estate market has been a lack of supply to meet the significant increase in demand. Overall listings in 2021 YTD are down -4% compared to 2020, and down -16% vs. 2019. May should be a month of significant new listing activity, but it didn’t work out that way… slightly behind May 2020, and over -22% below May 2019!
Below, you can see that the biggest shortfall is in the lower price points, where new listings in 2021 YTD are -20% lower than 2020, and -33% lower than the same period in 2019. May 2021 was -13% lower than May 2020 and -37% lower than May 2019!
While the sub-750K price points at least followed the general trend of increasing numbers of homes coming to market as we approach summer, May showed a significant drop from the prior month, down -26%, though still significantly higher than Mays of previous years.
