What to know about moving in Austin

How much does it cost to rent an apartment in Austin, Texas?

The average rent for a single-bedroom apartment in Austin was $1,320.67 a month in 2021.1 This marked an increase of roughly 7% over the city’s average rent in 2020, so rental prices are going up in Austin like in many other US cities.

On top of this, Austin’s 2021 rental prices were among the highest in the US. While the city’s average rent wasn’t even close to notoriously expensive cities like San Francisco ($2,212.89) or New York City ($1,714.89), it was several hundred dollars higher than most other US cities we researched.

Is Austin growing quickly?

Yes, Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States.2 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Austin has grown by 21% over the past decade.3

This means that the trend of rent hikes in Austin will probably continue.

Austin’s popularity also means that if you plan to move to Austin from another city or you plan to move to another neighborhood within Austin, you should book your movers ASAP. If you wait till the last minute to reserve your moving service, you may have a hard time finding any moving companies with open reservation spots.

How much should I budget for a local move in Austin?

Local moves generally cost $550–$2,000 when you hire a full-service moving company. If you use a moving container company like PODS or 1-800-PACK-RAT, you should expect to pay between $500 and $1,500 for your move. Renting a moving truck for a local move usually costs $132–$336 plus a mileage fee ranging between $0.47 and $1.29 per mile.

Learn more about moving costs by reading our guide to average moving prices.

Does Austin have a cool music scene?

Austin’s music scene is world-renowned, and the city is home to several illustrious music festivals like South by Southwest and Austin City Limits. In fact, we’ve found that Austin has the best music scene in the country. If you’re a music-lover and you’re considering a move to Austin, this might be the sign you’ve been waiting for.
