Hello Fishes, We currently live in Columbus OH and thinking of moving to Texas. We have two active kids under 10, we are out doorsies, foodies, love to live close to health clubs and trails..we have zeroed down on Austin..I know there are tones of post across FB about the city..but would love to hear Desi’s POV and good places for new SFH below 550K..I really appreciate any inputs.

You will also be represented by people like Greg Abbott and Ted Cruz. Sure, crazy politicians can crop up anywhere and any time but it feels the politicians in Texas are making changes that’ll have a material impact on people’s lives.

I don’t know if I’d want to raise a family in Texas the way things are there at the moment. There is just too much hate and vitriol in the air... and guns - too many fricking guns!

But maybe it’s just me!

Good luck in whatever you decide.

Makes sense.

Heard very good things about Austin, especially for folks who like nature. Dallas is good too for kid’s education but nothing natural for miles and miles.

You won’t find anything less than a million in the good school districts of downtown Austin (Zilker / Barton Sp)

Northwest Austin suburbs are great:

Check out Avery Ranch/ Cypress Creek Ranch at Cedar park has some great schools, and are areas close to nature trails.

Also check out Dripping Springs (but this area is largely white)

I live in The Woodlands, TX and would 100% recommend it - it’s small city feel but accessible to Houston and fair drivable distance to other cities. Austin is getting to be so busy and dense in population. That being said, the housing market is inflated in Texas (like in most of the states). I’m into buying investment properties and have held off on buying anything as of resent. If you can, wait till 2023.

I moved to the area (Frisco) and bought a house right before the pandemic hit. The current house prices for something relatively new in a decent suburb are just ridiculous. 500k is not realistic - more like 750-800 really
