Personify to Expand Austin Operations

As reoirted un the Austin American Statesman this week, this Virgina based software company found it difficult to grow their business in the D.C. area so instead they plan to expand their employee base here from 29 to 100 by the end of 2015. This firm provides association software to likes of the Girl Scouts of America and the American Bar Association. The company cited the main reasons for choosing Austin was the cost of living and the robust job market with lots of talent.

Does it get any better than this? Just another great reason to own Austin area residential rentals?

Happy Birthday America!

107 Acres of City Owned Land to Create 1,250 Jobs

As reported in the Austin Business Journal yesterday, the city plans on breaking ground this year on 107 acres west of the airport to put in the infrastrcure to support light manufacturing. The site should be ready to go by 2015 and an estimated 1,250 jobs should be generated. There are lots of towns that don’t even have that figure for a population!

These folks will have to live somewhere, and that is just another reason that makes the Austin area a great place to own residential rent properties.
