“The fundamentals of Austin’s economy are solid,” says ABoR Chairman Socar Chatmon-Thomas. “Our city’s job market receives high marks for its consistency, which in turn drives more people to move here. A robust labor pool and an expanding population are key to maintaining a healthy housing industry.”
