Housing Activity & Affordability

Residential home sales, listings, price activity and affordability for nearly 50 Texas metropolitan MLS (Multiple Listing Service) areas.

About the Data

Data used in Housing Activity comes from the Texas REALTOR® Data Relevance Project, a partnership among local REALTOR® associations and their MLSs, the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University, and the Texas Association of REALTORS®. The Data Relevance Project data series differs from the Discontinued Housing Activity data series in two ways:

  1. Includes data from more MLS systems in Texas.
  2. A deduplication process has been implemented to remove duplicate listings for a single property.

This process eliminates the impact of properties that have been listed multiple times within an MLS system or across multiple MLS systems.

Housing Activity & Affordability (Discontinued)

Residential home sales, listings, price activity and affordability for nearly 50 Texas metropolitan MLS (Multiple Listing Service) areas.

About the Data

Data in this Discontinued series was independently reported to the Real Estate Center by MLS systems across Texas. As of December 2015 this reporting process has been replaced by MLS system reporting through the Texas REALTOR® Data Relevance Project. The Center has retired this data series and will no longer make updates to it.
