by | Apr 19, 2016 | Austin Accolades | 0 comments

Earlier this month Zillow released its annual Hottest Apartment Market Report, and to nobody’s surprise, Austin was on it! Austin came in at number 8 in the nation because new apartment properties are getting filled to over 60% of their capacity within the first three months of going up. This is just one in a long line of top 10 lists Austin has graced the pages of this year; including some honors like #2 in U.S News’Best Places to Live  in the nation, and #1 in America’s Cities of the Future list by Forbes.


What does this mean for renters?

There is a building boom happening. Right now in Austin, 26 apartments are scheduled to open by the end of the year. This means rental prices are likely to rise and there is a lot of competition among renters to secure the best apartments early.
