Lake Travis Real Estate Popularity

By: David Bouthot

"The term 'waterfront property' and Texas often just don't seem to mix. After all, say the word 'Texas' and most people conjure up images of cities such as Dallas, oil rigs, and big spenders. However, Texas also happens to be the place with some of the most desirable waterfront property in the region. One of the most highly coveted areas to buy property with a stunning water view is in fact Lake Travis.

Lake Travis is located to the west of Austin, one of the most unique and colorful cities in the state. The lake itself meanders 63 miles through beautiful Texas Hill country, working its way towards the Mansfield dam. Lake Travis certainly isn't the only lake or waterway in the state, but there are many reasons why property owners look here first for their most desirable properties. Lake Travis is very close to Austin, a city that is growing and offers some of the most exciting cultural, educational, and even business opportunities in the region. Plus, Lake Travis offers stunning water views as well as surrounding views of Texas Hill Country, making this area far more beautiful than other water spots in the state.

Lake Travis real estate, with all waterfront views, also provides easy access to recreational opportunities on Lake Travis. For most home buyers, that is just an unbeatable combination.

For many, the South Shore of the lake is the most desirable area to buy real estate -- even more so than the north shore of Lake Travis. The South Shore boasts proximity to both the airport and Austin's vibrant downtown core. Very popular and highly desirable communities on the South Shore also tend to attract buyers. These communities, including Briarcliff, Hudson Bend, Lakeway, The Village of The Hills, and Spicewood boast beautiful homes and offer access to top-notch schools in the area, as well. As more people have flooded into the area, more services, shopping areas, and other attractions have developed along the South Shore of the lake. For example, a new hospital in Lakeway and the new Hill Country Galleria Mall in Bee Cave give residents even more reason to stay on the South Shore, and ensure that local residents have everything they need steps from their own homes.

The South Shore of Lake Travis is also the home of exclusive luxury gated communities. These include Costa Bella and Vineyard Bay, both close to Austin's downtown area, as well as Angel Bay, Barton Creek Lakeside, The Coves, and Lakecliff. If you're looking for luxury homes as well as exceptional security, these communities offer unparalleled views as well as all the peace of mind you require.

The city of Lakeway has received quite a lot of media attention for its beautiful homes, and this community is very popular with Lake Travis real estate buyers because of the stunning views that many of the homes in this community enjoy. If you want an unparalleled view of Lake Travis, look for Lake Travis real estate in Lakeway.

The South Shore of Lake Travis is not your only option, however. As South Side real estate has become more expensive and harder to find, many sellers are heading to the North Shore for their properties. Although these homes tend to be 20 to 30 minutes further away from Austin's downtown area and South Shore properties, this area is developing nicely and offers quite a lot of value for buyers."
