Facing record-high year-over-year rates of inflation, the Fed has been trying to combat it with a series of rate hikes that many Americans haven’t seen in decades. Rising mortgage rates have certainly had an impact on housing markets in the United States, with the number of home sales nationally declining by 7.4%, from 636,507 home sales in May 2021 to 589,146 home sales in May 2022, according to the latest data from Redfin
RDFN
.

Texas has always displayed exceptional traits when it comes to its economy and housing market compared to the U.S. overall. Indeed, looking back at the surge in prices during the late-2000s housing bubble, the graph for Texas home prices barely reflects the growing bubble displayed in the national graph. Thus, when it comes to the 2022 housing market, the Texas housing market is naturally an interesting one to investigate. Using housing data from Redfin, we broke down in detail the 2022 Texas housing market and where it’s headed.

10 Cities in Texas Where Homes Are Selling for the Most Above Their List Price

Sales-to-list ratio measures the average price a home sold for above or below its list price in a given area. Thus, a sales-to-list ratio of over 100% indicates that the average home is selling for more than it was listed for; a sales-to-list ratio below 100% indicates that the average home is selling for less than the price it was listed for. As a result, sales-to-list ratio can be a useful metric for gauging how popular certain housing markets are by showing which markets are seeing homebuyers willing to pay well above the original list price.
