The Texas Association of REALTORS® reported a slight increase in home sales volume in the third quarter while median prices also continued to rise in its recently released Texas Quarterly Housing Report. The report shows that 91,248 homes were sold in the past quarter, representing a 0.2% increase compared to the third quarter of 2015. The median sales price of $214,000 was a 7% jump in the same timeframe.

“Texas home sales in 2016 continue to edge out last year’s record-breaking sales volume, and in many local markets, growth is still very strong,” said Leslie Rouda Smith, chairman of the Texas Association of REALTORS®.

Housing inventory and active listings rose slightly—0.1 months to 3.9 months of inventory and 4.2% to 103,109 listings, respectively—while Texas homes spent an average of 53 days on the market, which is one more day than the same period last year.
