Selecting an Austin community

 Austin Area Master Planned communities are growing in popularity in the Texas Real Estate market. Many have schools within their boundaries, community pools and parks and now it is not uncommon to see small shops or businesses such as doctors, vets or convenience stores open their doors within or in close proximity to the communities. This allows for a small town within a big town kind of feel. Click on the link above to see more information about several such communities in the area.

A little extra info about the overall Austin area:

Austin, San Marcos and the surrounding Texas cities provide something for everyone. There is a lively music scene (Austin Texas is known as the "Live Music Capital of the World"), cultural and art scene, and we hear that we have more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the country. But it doesn't stop there! If you want great shopping check out the outlet malls, The outlet mall in San Marcos was named by the television show "The View" as the third shopping destination site in the world! Add to that the new outlet mall in Round Rock and the recently opened Domain in Northwest Austin. The schools are solid. There are fantastic lakes, and with the mild climate there is plenty of time throughout the year for the sports lovers to enjoy the many options in golf, tennis, football and so much more. On top of all that…the people are downright friendly. No wonder more people are choosing to move here. Austin has something for everyone!

With all it has to offer you may be surprised to hear that Austin Texas Real Estate is still affordable.

Austin Texas is situated on the Colorado River and has 3 lakes created by dam within its city limits: Town Lake, Lake Austin, & Lake Travis. The eastern section of Austin is relatively flat, but the western section & suburbs consist of rolling hills at the beginning of Texas Hill Country. The hills to the west are mostly limestone rock.

Austin Texas Area Climate

Austin's climate is characterized by its hot summers & mild winters - basically a humid subtropical climate, receiving 33.6 inches of rain per year, which mostly falls in the spring. Summer is typically hot and humid, with average temperatures above 90 degrees, and temperatures above 100 degrees not uncommon. The highest temperature recorded was in the year 2000 at Camp Mabry - 112 Fahrenheit! Winter offers a nice break in the heat with an average high of 62 degrees in December, 60 degrees in January, and 65 degrees in February. Austin averages 88 days in which the temperature falls below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

Austin Area Economy

The University of Texas at Austin graduates thousands of students each year which provides a steady source of young, talented, and driven employees to Austin's Job Market. The Austin Texas Real Estate Market is much more affordable than some other parts of the country and therefore it has attracted many large technology based companies to place their headquarters, or a large presence, in Austin Texas. A few of Austin's largest employers include The University of Texas, the State of Texas, Samsung, SETON Healthcare, IBM, Freescale Semiconducter, 3M, Sun Microsystems and Dell.

With all of the growth the Austin area is experiencing there is an effort not to lose its' personality in the process. People chose Austin because it's a little offbeat. So every effort is made to support the locally owned businesses so they can thrive. You likely will see the bumper sticker as you drive around town that says "Keep Austin Weird". This is a campaign to preserve Austin's local flavor.
