“The spring-selling activity seems to have arrived early in Williamson County as home sales in February outpaced expectations and resulted in another record-breaking month,” said Lisa Wurth, president of the Williamson County Association of REALTORS®. “Along with the rising, spring-like temperatures that characterized the last month of winter, our community continued to experience escalating buyer demand that kept Williamson County’s real estate market active and healthy.”

Total available residential inventory in Williamson County stood at 1,369 units at the end of February indicating a four-month supply of housing in the area. Compared to the same period last year, total available inventory is down 14.6 percent.

“While Williamson County continues to face the same challenge with low inventory as communities nationwide are experiencing, the homes that are market-ready are moving faster than ever. Homes moved off the market in Williamson County at 12 percent quicker rate this February than a year ago,” Wurth said.
