 Lila Valencia, City of Austin demographer, shared insights on Austin’s population growth and its impact on the housing market.

According to the Census Bureau’s 2021 population estimates, Austin is experiencing a net growth of 146 people per day. This type of growth places immediate and significant demand on infrastructure, particularly housing. When a person or family moves into Austin, finding a place to live is at the top of their agenda. The latest Austin Board of REALTORS® data shows strong housing market growth in Bastrop and Caldwell Counties, a sign that people are having to look farther out from the central city, which has implications not just for the local housing markets in these areas but also for transit and transportation and access to other amenities and services.”

City of Austin Condo Market Snapshot 

I ran this report focusing on the zip codes that had the most sold inventory.  This report was run on 4/7/22 and was compiled from a total of 94 listings.  This report includes all types of residential condos whether they are free-standing (detached), tower, townhome-style, or duplex.  All condo regimes were included in this report.  All things being equal, a condo dollar tends to go a little further than a fee-simple home.   In some locations, they can prove to be a cost-effective alternative.
