The best time to buy in Austin depends on your priorities. During the spring and summer months, you’ll see a much higher number of properties to choose from. There are roughly 50% more listings and more than twice as many new listings during the peak spring/summer months as the slower fall/winter months. However, there is much more competition duting the busy season, and as a result, higher prices. On average, prices are just over 7% higher in the spring & summer, and you can expect more multiple offer situations during this time.
