Austin's Housing Crisis

Austin is in a housing crisis. I'm an economist who has studied the issue. I built this website to inform people about the problem and how to fix it.

City Low-end Rent
Austin $973
Dallas $733
Houston $674
San Antonio $600

My measure of the crisis is the cheapest acceptable apartment in a city. The above data is from on Sept. 2021. As you can see, rent in Austin is roughly $250 more than in Dallas and $300 more than in Houston. Austin is in a housing crisis.
