Dr. Clare Losey, housing economist for Unlock MLS and the Austin Board of REALTORS®, highlighted the strong sales growth in Austin, noting the resilience of the market despite higher interest rates. She suggested that any slight decrease in rates could significantly enhance buyer purchasing power, invigorating the market even further. “A decrease in interest rates could make home financing more accessible, potentially increasing market activity,” she noted, indicating optimism for the market’s prospects through changing economic conditions.

He advocated for a collaborative approach to develop diverse and affordable housing solutions, essential for maintaining Austin's diverse community fabric.
