According to the latest Houston Association of Realtors (HAR) Market Update, 9,195 single-family homes sold in August compared to 8,673 a year earlier. That accounted for a 6.0 percent increase and marked the third consecutive month of positive sales. ... Sales of all property types totaled 11,121 - up 7.3 percent from August 2019 . Total dollar volume for the month increased 13.4 percent to $3.5 billion. After strong consumer interest in July, the lease market retreated in August, with declines in both the single-family and townhouse/condo markets. emphasis added Inventory declined 23.0% year-over-year from 44,369 in August 2019 to 34,181 in August 2020. Note that the closed sales in August were for contracts that were mostly signed in June and July.
