FORT WORTH, TX - Olympus Property announced the successful acquisition of Carrington Oaks. This Class-A garden style community built in 2015 is located in the city of Buda, a suburb of Austin, Texas.
Carrington Oaks is strategically located fifteen miles south of downtown Austin. The property is in close proximity to two major universities including University of Texas at Austin with 51,000 students and Texas State University in San Marcos with 38,000 students. The city of Buda, which the Texas State Legislature named "The Outdoor Capital of Texas," hosts an affluent demographic base with a median age of 34 and an average annual household income of over $90,000.
The city of Buda is in Hays County, which has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade. Hays County has grown approximately 42% from 2010 through 2018 making it the fastest growing county in Texas and the fourth fastest growing county in the country.
"Olympus is acquiring Carrington Oaks at an attractive basis in one of the fastest growing markets across the country. This deal checks all of the boxes as we continue to expand Olympus in our home state of Texas," said Chandler Wonderly, Principal of Olympus Property.

"Carrington Oaks is a beautiful property located near Austin, one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. The economic expansion in this market will provide sustained rent growth and appreciation which in turn will deliver strong returns to both our Partners and Olympus," said Chase Bennett, Director of Acquisitions.
For the third year in a row, Austin was ranked the #1 Best Place to Live by U.S. News and World Report. A booming economy, growing job market, high quality of life and low cost of living make Austin a sought-after city. Austin has earned the nickname "Silicon Hills" because it is a major employment base for technology companies such as Apple, Dell Computer, IBM, Intel, AMD, National Instruments and Samsung. Over the past decade the area has enjoyed a sustained period of economic and population expansion as local companies increase their business capacity and others relocate to this attractive central U.S. location.
