Just like the changing seasons, the housing market follows its own rhythm. Spring and early summer are like the sizzling months, while things cool down around September. Sometimes, we get unexpected twists, like a hot winter or a cooler than normal summer, shaking things up a bit. But from most accounts, this year seems to be sticking to the pattern!

A recent Zillow report hints at a late-summer slowdown is already upon us. Price hikes are easing up – homes rose by <1% from June to July, a step back from the previous months' climb. Plus, houses are lingering on the market a tad longer, taking an extra two days to snag a buyer compared to April and May.

Are we saying there's an opportunity here?

Yes, this is good news for eager buyers, especially in Austin. A combination of lower prices and less competition is good news for home buyers looking to make a move in the months ahead. But keep your head on a swivel, even with these positive signs, you need to be ready for action, especially when the opportunity you've been waiting for arrives, we are still seeing competition for well-priced and unique homes.
