Texas Quarterly Apartment Report
James P. Gaines, Luis B. Torres, Harold D. Hunt, Clare Losey, Trenton Forbes, and Caleb Smoot (Mar 20, 2020)

Please note. This report does not account for the impacts of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, but reflects the market through fourth quarter 2019 and can be used as a benchmark comparison for 2020. 

Overall market trends for the majority of Texas metros show positive occupancy rate growth combined with positive rent growth. Only Midland/Odessa is registering both negative rent growth and change in occupancy due to the uncertainty in the oil industry. With the supply of single-family starter homes constrained, young adults continue to rent units in the apartment sector. Overall market trends for the majority of Texas metros show positive occupancy rate growth combined with positive rent growth. Only Austin registered negative change in occupancy, while both Houston and Fort-Worth registered zero change in occupancy, and Midland/Odessa registered both negative rent growth and change in occupancy due to the uncertainty in the oil industry.

Austin
                         Occupancy Rates         Asking Rents
OVERALL                92.8%                         Up 4.8%
CLASS A                  90.1%                         Up 4.1%

What happened in the Austin rental market last quarter? 

Abodo Apartments released its October rent report, taking a close look at rental price trends from September to October 2019 . As the fourth quarter begins for many businesses and real estate companies, Abodo wanted to examine the Q3 2019  trends in Austin — one of the country’s most popular cities and hottest rental markets.

What happened in the Austin rental market last quarter? A few key findings include:
  • Rent prices in Austin increased from July to the end of September by 2.51 percent.
  • The median price of a one-bedroom apartment in Austin in July was $1,154.
  • The median rent price of a one-bedroom apartment in Austin as of the end of September was $1,183.
  • The median rent price of a two-bedroom apartment in Austin as of the end of September was $1,448.
  • Austin ranks as the 24th most expensive rental market in the country.

So, what does this tell us about the Austin rental market as we move closer to 2018?
Austin rent has continued to increase. And it’s difficult to avoid a rent increase when you’re living in the best city in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report. In 2017, Austin bumped Denver as the most popular city in the country. With that comes more people. More new residents moved to Austin last year than ever before, and this impacted the rental market in a major way. With demand at an all-time high and rising last quarter, there’s no telling when the Austin market (and popularity) will end.

The rent increases in Austin, in part, have resulted from an influx of new residents. But other factors have come into play as well. Some industry experts have suggested that landlords are feeling pressured because of increased demand for units while inventory is low, thus prices have been on the rise.

Another factor to keep in mind: The U.S. rental market saw historically low levels during the mortgage finance boom and has been steadily shifting to historical norms since the mortgage bust. This boom-bust cycle also impacted new apartment starts. With homeownership rates falling, it makes sense for landlords to continue to raise pricing on their rental units, especially in markets with tighter inventory like Austin.
Overall, it might be a while before residents see relief from these all-time high rent prices.

(*HomePlace Apartment Search broker note: With the new tax laws raising the Standard Deduction, thereby lowering the tax advantages of homeowning for most buyers; renting has become more attractive than buying for many, thus raising the demand and prices.)


Austin Texas Apartment Market Report

Austin Texas Apartment Market Report

4th Quarter 2019 Austin Apartment Trends

    Effective Rent $1,298
    Occupancy 93.2%

    Annual Job Change 28,600 jobs
    Annual Permits 9,484 units
    Annual Demand 8,868 units
    Annual Completions 12,115 units
    Annual number of New Residents 57,395 


4th Quarter, 2019  Austin Performance Highlights
The Austin metro has been a national leader for economic growth for more than five years. 
Broad-based economic gains have fueled demand for housing, which has generated strong revenue growth for the apartment sector, strengthened fundamentals and led to elevated levels of apartment development. 
With tight occupancy, apartment operators have pushed rents, but rent growth levels dipped a bit back in 2014 in response to a growing amount of completions and notable construction pipeline. 
Effective rents increased 5.0% in 2019, 3.6% in 2018 – which was meaningfully lower than the 4.8% hike in 2013. 
Driving the recent slowdown was softness in the top-end of the market. 
 At this point in the cycle, a continued point of strength remains in the middle market. 
However, the question remains whether the overall market can hold up against growing supply volumes.

Bob Bregenzer was able to help us find an amazing place up in the hills of Austin. I didn't think we'd find anything for the price I was asking and the amenities, but his experience and knowledge of the Austin renter's market and properties proved to be what was needed to find the needle in the hay stack. I had given up, but he was able to think off the top of his head and say, "oh there is this place", he called it up, we drove over, and bam, within that week we signed the lease and love the quiet, affordable, and beautiful place up near the Capital of Texas Highway.

Monika was great!
When I reached to them I was instantly assured by Monika Sargologos. She was very helpful and friendly. After a brief phone call about what I was looking for she had a place for us within a day or so!! Her first option was the one we chose. It was exactly what I had asked for and for the price I was looking for. I highly recommend them and specially Monika!

Simply amazing. My entire career I've worked for high end hotels and am still blown away by the level of customer service I've experienced here. I never thought I would need help finding an apartment but when it came to specific stipulations, I realized I would need help sorting through all of the options. Steven Sargologos is very good at his job and must have a large amount of resources to be able to do what he does. Persistence and positivity are fantastic traits to have in any customer service job but they save the day when you have to find the perfect home. Highly recommend!!!!

Monika! 
I can’t say enough good things about Monika Sargologos! She is goddess and patron saint of apartment hunting! I have a pitbull, really bad credit, moving in from out of state, and had a last minute financial skeleton pop up, that I was sure would spell doom. Not with Monika on my side! She got me into a truly amazing place that had everything I was looking for. Not only that, I had another equally amazing option to choose from. Which is remarkable given how bad my situation was. Normally I would have been lucky to be approved anywhere at all. She knows the area, and properties extremely well, and she has great relationships with building mangers, which is so key! Every time I talked to someone from one of the complexes, they always had great things to say about her. Monika was very friendly, knowledgeable, patient, determined, and all around great. Thank you Monika!

I worked with Michelle Ellis and she is amazing. She clearly knows the ins and outs of the Austin area as well the apartment landscape and she is very friendly. She took her time to find out what I really wanted and narrowed it down to a few likely candidates which we then toured. I'm certain this would have been a stressful search had I attempted it on my own but she made it fun. She helped me find the perfect place and better yet she was able to get me six weeks free. Recommend!

I worked with Bob Bregenzer at Homeplace apartment search.  Bob was very professional, very likeable and was very considerate of my time.  I would highhly recommend this company and especially Bob.  I just took a job in Austin and had one afternoon to find temporary housing, while I try to sell my home in another state.  Bob quickly found me several options that fit my needs and drove me to each of them to check them out.  I found one that day and was very comfortable with the area thanks to Bob's guidance.  Consumers pay no fee for this service, nor do the apartments jack up the rates for people that use this service.  I think this is a great service for any newcomer to the area.  I wouldn't move here without using them.  It will save you a lot of time.

Mere words seem inadequate when I consider the great experience and outstanding service I received from Michelle. The task of preparing to move cross country is monumental and highly stressful because there's a long list of things that must be done within a relatively short time frame. Perhaps the most challenging objective I faced was having a place to call home once I arrived at my new destination. Michelle was instrumental in resolving that problem. I was impressed with her desire to satisfy my needs while operating within my budget. Her professionalism, her availability and knowledge of the geographic area was outstanding. She communicated and kept me informed throughout the process. Whenever she identified a potential option she also provided a detailed summary of the surrounding business community, entertainment, and other services which is invaluable when you're unfamiliar with the local area. I highly recommend HomePlace and Michelle if you're in need of the services they provide. Hands down - they are the very best!!!

I was so pleased with Jessenia Del Callejo with my search for a place to live in Austin. I am moving from Arizona and from the "get-go", after I was searching online for places, she called and I was able to let her know my preferences to narrow the search and she immediately sent me a list to look over, which I was very grateful for. I visited Austin for a week to vacation a little and look for a place and Jessenia was so flexible with my schedule. She did a great job narrowing down the properties with availability for the time I am planning to move and that saved a lit of time. After only 2 days of looking at about 7 properties, I narrowed it down to 2 and then made my choice after returning to my first choice for a final look. One day after I returned to Az, I received approval to lease the property I wanted. Without Jessenia showing me around, being flexible, and providing her expertise, I am confident I would still not know where I was going to live when I move in to Austin in 5 weeks. Thank you Jessenia!
