High End Housing for UT students

A Developer from Tennessee who builds all over the United States for Campus housing and for student living has made it to Austin. EdR Collegiate Housing goals are to make upscale living and a lifestyle for UT Students. They are going above and beyond to fit with the loft like feeling. The high-rises they are building comes with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and high end finishes.The current project they are working on is 2400 Nueces, that is planned to be finished by Fall of 2013. The city of Austin in 2004, signed a zoning law for the area called The University Neighborhood Overlay District, stating that developments around the inner and outer skirts of the UT area will be able to handle more high rises. They are planning to add this year alone 4 new buildings, adding up to 2000 new luxury apartments and easy accessibility to the students. The rental rates alone are targeted to students who are looking for this type of living, the studio units start at $1,000. The high rise type of living can be up to 16-20 floors, where this time last year, was one of the highest rates of students with a vast 52,000 people attending. The whole plan also adds parking, as well as street level future shopping, dining, and other places for businesses. The other amenities that will be a plus to the plan are top of the line pools, gym facilities, and a more secure access to your unit. The University of Texas wants the first year freshmen to live on campus and get the feel of the college living but the cost of student housing alone could be up to $16,000 a year. Where that also includes, sharing a bathroom, common area, and having multiple roommates, so this new type of living is definitely more appealing to students. This will also relieve some of the West Campus area living for other tenants that are not necessarily attending UT but wanting to live in the area. It also is said to lower the rent in that area since the high rise population will rise.

June Market Stats

Austin Board of Realtor Image

 The Austin housing market is thriving, the increase of population per month plus continued job growth is helping our resale market, we currently have 2.9 months of inventory. The Austin Board of Realtors has stated in recent articles, that the current amount of supply will not be able to sustain the influx of people to the area. The inventory is just at its lowest, although the market is actually strong it is a struggle to find any type of housing in the Austin “In June 2013, a total of 1,575 properties were leased in Austin, which is six percent less than June 2012. The median price for Austin-area leases was $1,450, which is four percent more than the same month of the prior year. In the first half of 2013, a total of 7,658 properties were leased in Austin, which is two percent more than 2012, and the median lease price was $1,400, or eight percent more than this time last year.” -ABOR. So for the next couple of quarters left in the year, we will see the value of homes for sale increase, and the number of people moving to the Austin still flowing. Even from 2012 to 2013 as shown in the picture above the increase in average sales price per home is around $90,000. That is astonishing and definitely proves that Austin is flourishing, thankfully the next couple of years will bring some new developments to hopefully even out the market for both buyers and sellers.
