According to the release, coronavirus concerns did not significantly affect sales in the Austin-Round Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area, a five-county area around Austin.
Drops in housing inventory on the market indicate that may change during April, according to ABoR President Romeo Manzanilla.
“Declines in listing activity and pending residential sales in March indicate that we won’t begin to see the true impact of COVID-19 on the housing market until our April report,” Manzanilla said in the press release.
In March, new listings in the Austin MSA decreased by 12.7% to 3,770 listings, while active listings plummeted by 26.6% to 4,908 listings. Pending sales decreased by 19.2% to 2,852 pending sales.
