Texas real property listings are down 10 percent from a year ago, according to the latest figures from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs.
That’s the biggest decline since September of 2018.
Texas real estate sales in September were down 15 percent from the same month last year, according to the Texas Association of Realtors.
Sales in September fell to $1.07 billion from $1,724 million, a drop of 10 percent.
The association said it was a result of a drop in the number of transactions and a decrease in listings.
Texas realtors are looking for buyers and sellers to sell, and the housing market is becoming increasingly expensive for renters and seniors.
There’s a lot of speculation going on that this will be the worst year in Texas realty history.
“I think it will be one of the worst years in Texas history, but I’m not sure if that’s true,” said John Stoehr, an economist at the University of Texas.
“Texas realty sales in 2018 were very close to the worst record in the state’s history, and they were also in the midst of the biggest increase in prices over the last 10 years.”
