Growth and employment in Austin


I have been writing for a long time about the strengths of Austin — not only economically, but as a wonderful place to live. Two important articles in today’s local newspaper validate that view:

Austin’s job market, cool factor make city top draw for young adults

This chart says a lot:

Chart:  Migration to Austin, 18-34 Demo, Austin American-Statesman 01/28/2011

It’s also a great place to be long past that 25-34 demographic, and to raise a family.  So much to recommend this community.

And it looks like it will continue to be a strong employment market as well:

Forecasters see Austin economy picking up speed, jobs

“Our population is growing, so I do believe that the economy is going to start performing on all cylinders,”says Austin economist Angelos Angelou.

With an eye specifically on our local real estate market I have also updated my Austin Market Dashboard with final data for all of 2010.  We still have our challenges, but I would rather be here than almost anyplace else!

I’m staying bullish and looking forward to a good 2011 and even stronger growth beyond.

About Bill Morris, Realtor

More than thirty years of business experience (high tech, client service, business organization and start-up, including many years in real estate) tell me that service is the key to success and I look forward to serving you. I represent both buyers and sellers throughout the Austin metropolitan area, which means first-hand market knowledge is brought to bear on serving your needs: -- Seller Representation is a comprehensive process that begins with thorough market analysis and consultation, continues with properly staging the home to achieve the highest price possible in a reasonable time on market, a complete program of marketing and promotion, ongoing updates and communication, closing coordination, and follow-up throughout (and after) the sale. -- Buyer Representation is also full service: shopping, previewing, price and market consultation, contracting, negotiating, coordination of inspections, appraisals, repairs, and closing details, and follow-up beyond the closing of your purchase to ensure your lasting satisfaction. Because the real estate industry is becoming more sophisticated and challenging every day, you need a professional that understands the industry and is positioned to stay ahead of the game. I go the extra mile to help you achieve your goals. That's why I constantly research the market and property values so your home is priced effectively from day one. I also make sure the public knows your home is for sale by using innovative advertising and marketing techniques to attract potential buyers.
