A homebuyer today could purchase the typical Austin home for $485,000. But if they could go back in time to January 2021, they could have bought a home and two Teslas for the same price. 

Put another way, someone could purchase both a Tesla Model Y for about $41,000 and a Model S for $71,000 for less than the $116,000 increase in the median-priced Austin home over the last year. The typical Austin home cost roughly $369,000 in January 2021.
