You’ve likely heard the phrase, “everything’s bigger in Texas,” which can apply to everything from cowboy hats, speed limits, and pick-up trucks, to the sheer magnitude of the Texas State Capitol building and the value of its flagship professional sports franchise, the Dallas Cowboys. Heck, one of the state’s cattle ranches, King Ranch, has more acreage than Rhode Island.
Consider that Texas has double the square miles of the 10 smallest states combined, meaning you could fit many East Coast states, with Hawaii included as a bonus, inside its borders. For an international perspective, the state is twice the size of Germany.
This popular expression also applies to the Lone Star state’s population growth. At 25.1 million people, Texas sits only behind California in population, but is continuously recognized as having the most rapid growth of any state in the U.S. Nowhere is that more evident than in Austin, the heartbeat of Texas and a destination known and admired for its purposeful pursuit of weird.
Global Research firm, JLL, recently anointed Austin as the 19th fastest growing city in the world, joined only by Silicon Valley. Similarly, the Urban Land Institute ranked Austin No. 1 in its 2020 Emerging Trends forecast for overall real estate prospects, commenting on its deep talent pool, unique and popular lifestyle and ambitious commitment to business and real estate expansion.
Austin’s population growth is certainly no flash in the pan. According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau, 2019 was the eighth consecutive year that the five-county Austin metropolitan area that includes Travis, Bastrop, Hays, Williamson and Caldwell counties was recognized as the fastest growing area in the country among metros with at least one million people.
