In the report, ABoR President Cord Shiflet said fluctuations in home sales and supply are par for the course in fast-growing markets like Round Rock, Pflugerville and Hutto.

“The ups and downs we are seeing in our market are normal and somewhat expected considering the fast pace at which our market has moved over the past two years," Shiflet said. "Our area continues to really be influenced by companies targeting the Austin area for job creation and expansion, and that relocating workforce needs a place to live."
