Over the past couple of months, the Austin and central Texas areas have had more rain than I can ever remember, and I have been here for about 20 years. This seems to have delayed the summer rush by about a month or so, since we had fewer buyers travelling to the area during the heavy rains, and local home buyers weren't driving around looking as much either.
August is shaping up to be a solid month for our company (Austin Texas Homes, LLC), and for most of my friends who are in real estate. I hope the season lasts a bit longer than usual, but we will see. Typically, things slow down quite a bit starting in September. Perhaps the delay will push this to October this year.
