Up Close and Local: Austin
Austin has ranked as the strongest apartment market performer in Texas as of late, recording healthy occupancy and registering by far the best rent growth.
Building activity remains aggressive, however, which could create some challenges if local economic growth slows from its recent red-hot levels. Furthermore, with apartment sector investors looking to deploy so much capital here, buy-in won’t be cheap.

Discussion topics include:
- Composition of the metro economy and patterns in job production
- Building volumes
- Neighborhood-level opportunities and challenges
