Census Update: Texas has Seven of the Fastest Growing Cities in 2016-2017
Thursday, May 24, 2018
Written By: Megan Moore

Two of Texas’ fastest growing cities (over 50,000 population) are located in our beloved Williamson County. According to Census data that was released on May 24, Georgetown ranks as the sixth-fastest growing city and Cedar Park ranks 13th. Other cites in Texas include; Frisco (1), New Braunfels (2), Pflugerville (3), McKinney (9) and Flower Mound (11).

What does this mean for you? In a nutshell – MORE BUSINESS! People are continuing to move to Texas, specifically Williamson County, and this is indicative in our home sales and prices. In April home sales in Williamson County increased 6.4% and home prices increased 4.2% compared to the same period in 2017. And the median price for a home in Williamson County is $33,750 less than the Austin MSA media price of $315,000 and just slightly more than the national median price of $281,250.

WCREALTORS continues to offer programs and events that meet the demand of this busy and rapidly growing real estate climate.  Earlier this month the association welcomed the City of Cedar Park to host a Lunch & Learn on building permit issues and we expect to offer more these types of classes in the future. The East Side Bus Tour will be on June 20 and will highlight the new growth and development on the east side of Williamson County.

Williamson County continues to offer a high quality of life for its residents with its abundance of parks and recreational activities, retail and restaurants and access to many different types of housing.
