Investors Should Bring their Money to Austin


As cities across the United States continue to expand in multiple aspects, including the housing market, investors have to make the decision on where to bring their money. Curbed conducted research to create a list of markets that will be the fastest-growing and most dynamic in 2018. Austin was one of nine different cities highlighted in the article.

While each city brings something different to the table, including Nashville, Tennessee, for its maturing music scene, Austin was highlighted for its tech frontier. The city is considered a desirable location for millennials to move, a city with a flourishing tech industry, and an extremely active real estate scene.

Just two things on a longer list of upcoming projects for the city is the construction of what will be the city’s tallest skyscraper, The Independent, and a new luxury tower will also go up on Rainey Street. Though it has been predicted that Austin’s increasing population will begin to slow down, the article stresses that this is not necessarily a bad thing.

“There was some hand-wringing at the end of 2017 when economic forecasts predicted Austin’s decade-long growth spurt would slow down. But with forecasters still expecting 3 percent job growth, this is the kind of cooling off many places would love to experience.”

"Over twenty years ago I was introduced to Ellen Muskin by my real estate attorney as the person to work with in the multifamily market in Austin, Texas. Since then she has represented me in both the buying and selling capacity. She is a true professional unique in her ability to cover all the bases while working closely with both buyer and seller. Her comprehensive experience and innate negotiating skills together with a sharp sense of humor makes for a delightful and very positive working relationship.

From start to finish she reflects an honesty and integrity that is refreshing and makes for a positive relationship with all parties during and after the deal is done."
