AUSTIN - Central Texas home prices hit an all-time high last month, while sales set a record for the month of April, according to the Austin Board of Realtors.

April marked the eighth straight month of annual home sale increases, board officials said, noting that housing affordability continues to be a challenge.

The median price jumped 14.4 percent year over year in April, with half of the homes selling for more than $274,000 and half selling below that amount. Less than 30 percent of single-family homes sold in the region were priced below $200,000.

The board said 2,568 homes were sold last month — a record for the month of April and an increase of nearly 8 percent over April 2014.
