JB Goodwin Realtors combing through Austin rental statistics

2018 has started off with a bang for property leases in Austin with the total number of available properties rising, largely due to an almost insatiable demand from the market.

The properties that are being leased in December 2017 are larger compared to those available in December 2016, which has led the overall price per square foot to decline slightly.

That shouldn't come as a surprise, however. The number of new construction apartments that were available at the tail-end of 2017 was at a low not seen since 2013 but the number of single-family homes for rent in Austin had grown by 19%.

Well, December 2017 was another wild ride according to the Austin Leasing Statistics.

Between June 2013 and June 2017, the number of apartments that are occupied has dropped four percent exactly. But this is almost definitely because of additional supply coming on to the market.

In fact, between 2016 and 2017, the market saw 600 more units become available for lease, which must have been like music to those searching for a lease as their number grew by a whopping 9%, which was more than double of 2016’s numbers. The trend for those who listed their leasehold property with JB Goodwin REALTORS continued too, with a JB Goodwin property being occupied and closed four days faster than the average property on the MLS.
