Austin Metro Rental Statistics: Fourth Quarter 2023

Published February 14th, 2024 by IREAF

Happy 2024! I’m hopeful December was restful, and the new year has kicked off in full swing for you. As always, I have been monitoring our investor and rental market activity in the Austin Metro Area and am excited to share the December 2023 statistics and my observations.

Main Takeaways:

  • December is often the slowest month of the year in Real Estate, With this in mind - it’s fair to say that the Austin rental and leasing market performed as expected in Dec. 2023! The rental demand in the ‘slow’ season is typically driven by employment - people moving for new jobs. I encourage our investors to also monitor additional data such as Indeed statistics/job postings and employment growth in tandem with monitoring the rental market stats.

  • Increased December YOY Duplex listings? It’s certainly thought-provoking when we see such a large YOY (34%) increase in anything, but particularly duplex listings and particularly in the slow season! In Dec. 2022, there were 147 new duplex listings in Austin Metro. In Dec. 2023, there were 197. The total number of duplexes actually leased in all of ABoR MLS during the entirety of 2023? 2,513. Both years still produced what I consider to be very low available lease listings, and just keep in mind we shouldn’t make any broad assumptions on the market based on December activity.
