Tech in Real Estate | Q3 State of the Market Analysis [Infographic]

You already know (and can see and feel) Austin’s rapid growth—but why is it growing so quickly?  The State Capitol and University of Texas provide a stabilizing effect to the city, but the technology sector is the rev’ed engine that is driving growth.  Austin is far past its “being discovered” stage – the city is now home to a dynamic mix of larger, established tech companies that are experiencing organic growth as well as one of the hottest start-up markets in the country.  The start-up scene has expanded beyond tech to biotech and food-related companies.  Austin’s strong entrepreneurial base, high quality of life and talented/educated workforce make it an ideal location for established and emerging companies.
 
Forbes listed our Capitol City as #1 for tech industry job growth during 2004 – 2014 at an eye-popping 73.9% growth, with 53,118 total tech jobs at the end of 2014 (Forbes.com).
