Austin will recover faster than U.S.

The Austin Business Journal reported comments today from Mark Dotzour, chief economist at Texas A&M University’s Real Estate Center. Mark predicted that “Austin will outperform the rest of the country in job growth and in the health of its housing market.”  The ABJ went on to quote Mark saying “Austin will add 8,500 new jobs between now and August 2009, despite a negative job growth across the country. The local housing market will turn around faster than the rest of the country by next summer”.  

Here at Great Austin Properties, we can’t help but like Mark’s optimism. As a leading website for Austin real estate, we have the opportunity everyday to talk with people moving to Austin. Whether it’s the beautiful scenery of the hill country and lakes, the culture of central Austin, or a growing job market, we hear the same thing over and over… folks want to move to Austin, Texas.
