Spring and summer are the months that have the most inventory for sale. This is historically correct except for 2008 when the homebuyer incentive program ended. Most people prefer not to move over the holidays from November through Valentines Day. That year alone had more sales in January & Feb because of this program. Right now the inventory is dwindeling as so many people are continuing to move to Austin. At the moment I have seen multiple offers on my listings. So I know the Austin Market is stronger than most.

If you'd like to look for yourself, try the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M (recenter.tamu.edu). Click on the data tab, then "Housing Activity & Affordability" tab and select your favorite city. A nice graph will appear, corresponding numbers below it.
Search all Austin homes for sale at my website. Contact me if I can help.
As said before now is a good time to buy because of low interest rates. A low inventory of available homes has moved the momentum toward a Sellers market with prices holding firm or beginning to climb. Many multiple offers on really good properties.
Good Luck and call or email me for assistance.
