September 2016 Real Estate Market Results in Canyon Creek

Fourth Quarter is here and you’re wondering if it is the right time to sell or buy a home?  The answer is definitely yes! Austin’s economy continues to swell because of jobs, jobs, jobs. Newcomers seek out the Canyon Creek Subdivision because of its rolling hills topography, broad tree lined streets and excellent schools. 


Canyon Creek is one of the most desired neighborhoods in NW Austin. It’s a prestigious master planned community that boasts several parks, a Junior Olympic pool, tennis courts, nature trails, top notch public schools, close proximity to our lakes, extensive entertainment and dining options. Canyon Creek offers homes from the mid $300,000’s to the high $600,000’s and includes 2 gated sections offering detached garden/condo home living options.


Active Listings in Canyon Creek

As of October 1, 2016 there are 7 resale homes in Canyon Creek priced from a low of $419,900 to a high of $599,000.   There is a 1 month supply of homes thus Canyon Creek enjoys a true seller’s market. If you are thinking of selling in Canyon Creek now is an excellent time to list your home for the fall real estate market. Buyers, I have some wonderful homes coming to market that I know you will love!


Pending Sales in Canyon Creek

As of October 1, 2016 there are 9 homes under contract waiting to close with an average of 20 days on market. Five of these listings are mine.


Homes Sales in September 2016

There were 7 closed homes in the Canyon Creek Subdivision in September up 600% from August 2015. Sold homes enjoyed a 98.7 % List to Sell Ratio and the days on market were up 33% compared to August 2015. Numbers don’t always tell the whole story: In 2015 more homes closed in August and ended up with few pending homes so only one home closed in September of 2015. It was a smaller home that received multiple offers.


Our fall market is kicking in to high gear as the countdown to the holidays begins! We continue to fight low inventory and high demand so if you’re thinking of selling….contact me. Those who are willing to price and stage homes right have an excellent chance to sell.



Canyon Creek Real Estate Summary


Bottom line: September 2016 home sales in Canyon Creek were up from September 2015 , the average sold price in September 2016 increased by 29% and the sold price/square foot was up 5%! Why? Buyers purchased larger homes after price reductions and quickly took advantage of the re-pricing. 2015 was a good year and 2016 looks like fewer home sales, with higher prices and longer days on market.


The 9 homes currently under contract show the number of days on market to be shorter as realistic seller’s price and stage their homes to be competitive and are receiving offers! However the 7 active listings are showing longer days on market as some sellers “ego” priced their homes. Buyers are too savvy to be taken in. We have a seller’s market..not a “stupid” market.


Sellers, determining the right price are where I can help you. Handling the demand, offers and dialogue with appraisers requires a seasoned professional like me with systems and processes in place to obtain fairly; the highest and best price for sellers. As a Canyon Creek resident since 1994 I know the intricacies of our community and our hyper local real estate market. I have many listings coming on market and am carefully preparing them to meet the expectations of the buyers.


Homes in Canyon Creek Subdivision in NW Austin, TX that are selling the quickest have several characteristics in common:

·        Reasonably updated

·        Clean and uncluttered

·        Priced according to the current market conditions

Meeting these conditions your home has an excellent opportunity to be seen and sold in advance of others in the Canyon Creek Real Estate Market!

Hi Dorie -- your update shows why hiring local, knowledgeable and successful real estate representation is so important to prospective buyers and sellers.  You share the nuances of the Canyon Creek neighborhood.   I especially like to hear that five of the nine properties under contract are your listings -- very nice and not unexpected at all.
