Real Estate in Austin

By: Jay Carter

For as long as it has been in existence, the state of Texas has defied the norms. Texas as we know it grew from a history that mixed Mexican influences with the dogged hard work of settlers moving west and south in search of freedom and open air - and grew into what is today (as the state's residents would have you believe) more or less a whole other country. Everywhere you turn, it's apparent that Texans have long gone out of their way to ensure that their home state doesn't blend in with the backdrop.

This is especially true in the city of Austin, Texas. Real estate in Austin is popular for a wide variety of reasons: it appeals to people of all ages, races, economic levels, and walks of life.

One population you will find alive and healthy in Austin is the college crowd. Austin is home to the University of Texas - which means you'll find a college culture complete with cultural events, impromptu gatherings, and ample housing. Even those who are far removed from their own college days are sure to relish the proximity of the university: the University of Texas is central to the Austin community.

Apart from the college crowd, Austin is a perfect landing spot for musicians, artists, families, and independent spirits of all kinds. Austin has long been lauded as a haven for the independent-minded: a local saying asks everyone to join hands and hearts to 'keep Austin weird.' Here, you'll find people who live life the way they choose - without negative interference from others. Austin's bevy of cultures and subcultures - and acceptance of those who more or less eschew culture - has proved a magnet for many intensely interesting people and communities. Whatever it is you're looking for (or looking to get away from), you'll find it in Austin.

Real estate in Austin, then, represents many different things to many different people. Looking for a great place to raise a family? Done. Looking for a town to crash in for four, six, or eight years as you complete a degree (or two or three)? Done. Looking for a place to settle for a bit while you wait to see where the wind takes you? Once again, done. Texas is unique among states, and Austin is unique among communities in Texas: the locals will happily tell you that once you've set down roots in Austin, you're unlikely to leave. The independent atmosphere and overall ease of living simply cannot be replicated anywhere else.
