Austin to Recover Quickly From Recession

Forbes ranks Austin/Round Rock MSA for metro areas where the recession is easing
Wednesday, March 03, 2010 - 03:28 PM

Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio were also in the Top 10. Here's what Forbes said about Texas:

If one state is a poster child for economic recovery, it's Texas, home to four of the 10 cities on our list. There's more to why Austin, Dallas, San Antonio and Houston are faring well than just the state's energy industry. The tech, government and education industries supplement the oil state's riches. As for housing, cities in Texas didn't see the same run-up in home prices and rampant speculation that led to the spectacular bubble burst elsewhere in the country. "The housing market got lucky, if you want to look at it that way," says James P. Gaines, research economist at the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University. "We didn't have excessive overbuilding, so we don't have a big overhang of unsold new homes, and because Texas has among most affordable housing in the country, the demand sustained."

The list was based on jobs data, economic growth projections by Moody's Economy.com and median sales price of single family homes. Here's the Top 10 among the nation's 40 largest metro areas:

1. and 2. (tie): Austin-Round Rock, Washington, D.C.
3. Dallas-Fort Worth
4. and 5. (tie): Houston and Minneapolis-St. Paul
6. Denver
7. San Antonio
8. Boston
9. Los Angeles
10. Kansas City

 

Practical Advice for New Homeowners

There's nothing more exciting than opening the door to your first new home and knowing that it's actually yours, that you actually own it! No landlord bothering you about every little thing. No silly rules about what colors you can paint or what renovations you want to make. Finally you can do whatever you want to do in your home!

And while this is a great feeling, and the pride you feel is natural and well deserved, don't allow yourself to get too carried away with your newfound freedom. You worked hard to earn this opportunity and you don't want to potentially jeopardize your investment by letting your emotions get the better of you.

If you've recently bought your first home or you plan to do so soon, take a few moments to think about the practical side of home ownership before you start making any major changes or renovations. Doing this will help ensure that your first home becomes the personalized place you always wanted and worked so hard to get.
