Austin Leasing Statistics

November 2017

Despite demand more than doubling between 2016 and 2017, the base price for a lease in Austin has remained relatively flat, which is great for both renters and landlords. Since 2013 the rate of apartment occupancy has been on a steady decrease, which is a trend that continued in 2017. That being said, landlords can expect that listing their apartment for lease with JB Goodwin means that their property has the greatest opportunity to be occupied.

    • Demand has risen 8.5% in 2017
    • Price has remained steady for 2017
    • JB Goodwin listings have been on the market 5 days less than the MLS average
    • 3,000 fewer apartments between 2016 and 2017 (to date)

Over the past few days, Hurricane Harvey has been wreaking havoc on communities in and around Houston. Whole communities are said to be underwater, lives have been lost and severely impacted, and tens of thousands of residents have been displaced. Texas has not seen a disaster like this since Hurricane Carla in 1961--which was a Category 5 hurricane and caused $300 million in damages—a record that Harvey, unfortunately, looks set to defeat. In times like these, it is critical that we all band together and do what we can to help those in need.

That’s why the JB Goodwin team is donating money to assist the Red Cross.

And you can too.

Besides the tremendous amounts of property damage, the hurricane will likely leave a large number of children

For about a year, a small mystery existed regarding the future of one of the most famous buildings in Austin. It began in 2015 when the Cox family purchased the Austin-American Statesman building, a property on Congress Ave, just south of Lady Bird Lake. Anyone who has been to the Congress Ave Bridge to view the bats coming out at dusk has seen the nondescript building just south of the knoll where many stand to view the iconic Austin bats.

The intriguing thing about this purchase, and perhaps why it drove so much curiosity, was the fact that the Cox family has owned the publication since 1976.

Speculations quickly began among local real estate companies in 2015 about whether this expensive property was soon to return to the market. Recently, some
