The greater Austin Texas area is big. It is diverse, and property ranges from very expensive to very reasonable with just a few miles difference.
Why you would choose to live in the Austin Texas area is an easy decision. From the music scene on 6th street to the quickly growing music scene in Round Rock, and at the Arboretum, and South Austin on Congress and surrounding are, it is easier than ever to access fun, live music with out a long drive from where ever you are.
Then there is diversity. From political diversity to geological diversity. East Austin is green and lush, West Austin is more arid and rocky. And as you go slightly west you will enter "Hill Country". Steiner Ranch subdivision is an excellent hill country up scale subdivision, closer in is Cat Mountain or West. As is Spicewood Springs, TX for great hill country homes. Then the lakes. Lady Bird lake down town, and the Colorado river running through the center of Austin. And at Lakeway you have Lake Travis. Oh my I have left so much out....! The point is Austin is a diverse city and area.
