July 2017 Real Estate Market Results in Canyon Creek
It’s hard to believe we are in our third quarter of 2017! If you’re wondering if it is the right time to sell or buy a home…The answer is definitely yes! Texas economy continues to be robust because of job creation resulting in more people coming our way. 50 people a day move to Austin!
Once again Austin tops the hit parade ranking #3 on Wallet Hub’s “Best Place to Start a Career” in 2017! Buyers seeking out jobs consider living in the Canyon Creek Subdivision because of its rolling hills topography, broad tree lined streets, neighborhood diversity and excellent schools. Canyon Creek is where you’ll find neighbors are friends; streets are safe and the nights quiet.
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.

Homes Sales in July 2017
5 homes closed in the Canyon Creek Subdivision in July 28% fewer than July 2016. The 5 sold homes enjoyed a 99% List to Sell Ratio (up 2% from 2016) and days on market were up down 15% compared to July 2016.
Well priced available inventory remains a challenge but sellers need to remain mindful that proper pricing and presentation is critical to a successful transaction.
Today’s buyers are savvy about current home values and inventory. They are resisting over priced listings. The current active homes are seeing elevated days on market and properties listed too high are making price reductions. Presenting your home in its best light coupled with listing at market price is the key to going from Active to Sold.
