AUSTIN (10/19/2012) – The local area’s housing market continued its upswing in September, with sales of existing homes up nearly 10 percent and the median price rising 5 percent, to $198,250, according to Austin Board of Realtors (ABOR).

 

The figures from ABOR showed that 1,806 single-family homes were sold last month, marking the 16th straight month of sales increases and the eighth straight month of median price increases in the Austin area.
