AUSTIN - Conventional wisdom is that spring is the best time to buy a house, but does that hold true for all markets?
A new study from NerdWallet and Realtor.com identified January as the cheapest month to buy a house in the Austin area—prices were 9.2 percent lower than the summer median, when homes sell for the most.
That translates to an average savings of more than $23,000 for homebuyers.
When NerdWallet and Realtor.com examined two years of home sales in the Austin area, they found prices were on average 9.2 percent lower in January compared with their summer peak.
