Houston home prices reached a record level for the month of March, according to the latest data from the Houston Association of Realtors. Single-family median home prices increased 2.4% in March 2018, reaching $233,500. When calculated as an average, home prices increased 3.0% to $292,756.

Conversely, home sales volumes dipped a bit during March, with 6,810 single-family homes sold, down slightly from March 2017’s sales of 6,982.

As a whole, home sales during the first quarter of 2018 are up 2.8%, compared to the first quarter of 2017.

Meanwhile, pending sales, a forward-looking indicator of homes under contract that have not yet closed, are up 4.6% in March 2018, compared to the same month a year ago. As 2017 represented a record year for Houston  home sales, 2018’s early pace suggests that the market has plenty of room to run.
