Home sales are up in the Austin area.
According to the Austin Board of Realtors, 1,784 homes sold in March 2010 – up 27 percent from a year ago.
There were 215 condos sold – up 129 percent from March 2009.
The median price for a single-family home in Austin is $180,000 – unchanged from last year.
The increase in sales could be the result of homebuyer tax credits that expire at the end of the month.
