Another Look At December 2015 Home Sales

Those of you who pay close attention to the market will have noticed that HAR’s press release showed December performing much worse. The release indicated December single family home sales were 5,879 a 10% decline from December 2014. HAR uses estimates for their press release. I understand they will adjust the number of actual single family home sales to be slightly higher than I predicted in my posy January 13.

In absolute terms the increase was 511 more homes sold in July 2015. However, the increase was not across the entire price spectrum.

Houston Home Prices Continue to Increase

The median price of a single family home in Houston in July 2015 was $220,000. The definition of median is that one-half of all homes sold in July were under $220,000 and one-half were above $220,000. Houston’s median price has been increasing. The first month ever that the median price was over $200,000 was May 2014. Since that time the median price has been below $200,000 only four of the fifteen months. The movement of the median price tells us nothing about how much an individual home has increased in value but it is a good statistical measure of what prices are doing in general.
