AUSTIN - The median home price in Austin has jumped $20,000 in 30 days.

“(It’s) one of the largest jumps in median home price that we’ve seen in years,” said Barb Cooper, president of the Austin Board of Realtors which has released monthly data.

The median price for a single-family home now stands at $274,000, compared to 2014 when the median price was $239,900. The average price is $341,054, up from $308,752 a year ago.

Homes continue to sell rapidly, even though April is not considered as strong as the summer season.

The $875.8 million in total volume represents a record for the month of April.
