I was excited to see that Austin was named #7 on HousingPredictor.com’s latest list: “Hottest Buyers Markets in 2009”. Housing Predictor provides independent real estate forecasts.
Austin seems to be on this type of list perenially, but I know that this month is my best income month (and my busiest) since 2007, which is certainly exciting and perhaps gives more credence to this data.
The combination of low interest rates, first-time homebuyer incentives, and the advent of the traditional sales season has made things really busy around here for us lately.
According to the article:
The Hottest Markets in 2009 represent areas of the country where there is stronger employment, prospects of growth and promises of prosperity. They represent exceptions in a cascade of deflationary housing markets that are projected to appreciate, despite an economy that has years to fully turn around.
Here’s the full article along with the list if you’re interested:
