Austin Grows to 11th Largest City in the Nation
According to new Census data, Austin has now grown to the 11th largest city in the nation. This is a surprising jump from the 13th spot that Austin held last year. Austin has now passed both Jacksonville, Florida and Indianapolis, Indiana for population size.
The data included in this report account for populations within the city limits. Information collected from the U.S. Census Bureau included data from births, deaths, and migration to calculate population numbers.
The study also showed that much of the country's growth came from the South and West regions, but more specifically from Texas. Eight of the top 15 large cities and towns were located in the Lone Star State. Other Texas cities with high growth rate included Houston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, and San Antonio.
New York remains the largest city in the country with a population of over 8.3 million residents this past year. Los Angeles and Chicago also topped the list.
The team at Cain Realty Group with Keller Williams Realty has definitely seen the growth in Austin over the past few years. The current market is low in listing inventory, and the number of buyers in the area has increased. We've also seen many buyers relocating to the area and looking for Austin homes for sale.
