​​​​​​​COLLEGE STATION – While existing-home sales rebounded at the national​​​​​ level, they dropped by a seasonally adjusted 2​ percent in Texas. 

Across the state, the lack of available homes suppressed resale activity in March, particularly in North Texas and Houston. Fort Worth closings fell 7 percent year over year, down 10 percent since November 2017.  

Statewide existing-home inventory sits at a record-low 3.1 months. The Real Estate ​Center considers a six- to 6.5-month supply a balanced market. 

Existing homes averaged just 52 days on the market as economic growth fueled housing demand, driving the median price to a seasonally adjusted $223,676, a record high for Texas. Rising home values and mortgage rates have yet to stifle intense demand.
