Way more red/orange than I would have expected. Like that "Westlake Dr" area...is that a slum? What's going on there?
The above image shows the percent change in value for over 120,000 properties in Austin, TX.
The value of addresses for 2016 and 2017 was gathered from publicly available data from the Travis Central Appraisal District.
The addresses were then translated into a latitude and longitude using a locally-running instance of OpenStreetMap's "Nominatim".
The data points were drawn using Google Maps' drawing API, in groups of 10,000. The resulting images were combined using the image editor "GIMP".
What happened to that orange clump north west of University of Texas? Did they build a water treatment plant there?
This data is a bit deceptive. It's appraised value for tax purposes, which is different from market value. For instance my property tax had little overall change (land value rose, structure value fell), but market value still increased something like 5%. All the yellow and red locations on the map are highly desirable and have drastic market price increases over the last 5 years.
This is a great visualization of data, but would prefer to see market value rather than taxable value.
A 20% 1-year price increase is insane. Apparently the US average was 6.5% for 2017. Why is the Austin market so crazy?
Theresa May mocked for suggesting Tories are to thank for credit card charge ban imposed by EU - The UK Government obliged to adopt new rules that were devised by the European Parliament and spearheaded by left-wing parties, but Theresa May tried to claim credit for it
