Austin, TX

The 199,086-unit metro Austin apartment market didnÂ’t add as many units as expected in 2017, but the 6,410 added was enough to increase the vacancy rate 40 basis points over the year to 5.7%. The rate edged up 20 basis points in the fourth quarter and another 40 in January 2018, when another 1,072 units completed construction. The new projects hitting the market are charging high rents, and in 2017, the average asking rent increased 5.3% to $1,175 per month while the average effective rent rose a huge 6.4% to $1,099 per month. The fourth quarter gain, however, was just 0.4% by both measures, albeit followed by a gain of 0.5% by both measures in January 2018. VIEW APARTMENT LISTINGS >
The 15.9-million-square-foot Austin Flex/R&D market had a positive year in 2017, as 116,200 square feet of new supply was more than offset by 196,000 square feet of net absorption and the vacancy rate fell 50 basis points to just 8.5%. The fourth quarter decrease was also 50 basis points. The average asking rent was up 4.1% over the year to $9.94 psf, with the average effective rent up 4.3% to $8.91 psf.

The 35.6-million-square-foot Austin warehouse/distribution market got 754,000 square feet of new supply in 2017, and the vacancy rate increased 120 basis points over the year to 8.8%. It was down 20 in the fourth quarter, as no new projects completed. The average asking rent surged 4.2% over the year to $7.36 psf, with the average effective rent up 4.6% to $6.57 psf, including gains of 1.2% and 1.4% in the fourth quarter.

It was unchanged in the fourth quarter but down 10 basis points in January 2018. Rent gains imply a strong market despite a slightly higher vacancy rate.
