The median price of single-family properties also rose, by 8 percent, to $182,500.

Altogether, the number of active single-family listings in the MLS fell by 2 percent in August, totaling 8,137.
"The Austin market continues to buck the national trend because this city is really in the infancy of its life as a major metropolis," explained ABoR Chairman John Rosshirt. "Relative to other big cities, Austin's prices are a steal. Plus, the quality of life here makes it a desirable destination for people and businesses looking to relocate."
Single-family properties were not alone in experiencing notable gains this August. The number of townhouses/condos sold increased 20 percent to 299. These sales collected $53,184,924 in aggregate revenue, 33 percent more than they did last year.
