​​HOUSTON - Despite the downturn in the energy industry, Houston’s housing market made it through January relatively unscathed.

On a year-over-year basis, single-family homes sales declined slightly, total property sales and total dollar volume were flat and average and median sales prices rose.​

Single-family home sales decreased just 2 percent year over year to 4,024, the Houston Association of Realtors reports. ​

Houston's housing inventory has held above a 3.1-months supply since May 2015, climbing to a 3.5-months supply last summer and settling at a 3.3-months supply in January. 

​​​That compares to a 2.5-months supply in January 2015. For perspective, the national supply of homes reported by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) currently stands at 3.9 months.​
