Austin Tops List for Highest Percentage of Job Gains over the Past Five Years
Austin is at the top of U.S. for most job gains in the past five years. During this time Austin has regained all of its private-sector jobs that were lost during the recession. From 2007 to 2012, Austin has gained over 45,000 jobs and experienced a 7.49 percent gain according to the Business Journal. This obviously helps the Austin real estate market to continue to outperform the rest of the nation.
