Summary: In an interview on KBTX news that aired on Thursday, October 15, 2020, PERC Director Dennis Jansen discussed the housing market in Bryan-College Station.
 
The October issue of Economic Indicators noted that single family housing building permits increased in the first eight months of this year compared to the same period in 2019. The average listing price from June to September also increased $16,453 over the same months from last year.
 
“Housing prices are up in terms of average sales for the area, housing pending contracts are up, so in a sense, our housing inventory of available houses for purchase is down, so I think yes, housing is a bright spot,” said Jansen.
 
Economic Indicators is a monthly publication produced by the Private Enterprise Research Center that reports on the national, state, and local economy.
