Austin is blasting off! And this isn't just a pun related to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk moving into town and bringing Tesla with him.
The latest market stats from the Austin Board of Realtors is highlighted below. Inventory levels have reached historical lows in December, and we should see those stats next month. If you're a buyer in the current Austin Real Estate market you have likely experienced how tight and difficul the inventory levels have become. Even new home builders have inventory issues and delays that are creating long wait lists for upcoming phases and new communities. This is all due to a "perfect storm" of factors that developed over the last fews years. Austin has been a popoluar place to live for a long time. The mortgage crisis caused builders to lower inventory levels, and more recently, COVID and how different states have handled the pandemic has led to even more people flocking to Texas. When you combined this increased migration of people (and corporations) to a market where inventory is already low.... Well, you get the idea.
