South Austin

South Austin is an area with heart. Homes here are cozy and eclectic, nestled into inviting neighborhoods within biking distance of downtown Austin. Home buyers will notice that the prices of the homes go higher as you go closer to the river. Some of the expensive neighborhood areas are Barton Hills, Travis Heights and Bouldin Creek. First-time home buyers can also look into South Austin condos, for a more affordable home that doesn't include all the maintenance of owning a house. Proximity to the coffee shops, bakeries, local galleries and theaters makes it an ideal place to live.

South Austin also features the eclectic SOCO shopping district which is a strip of upscale boutiques, hotels, and some of Austin’s finest restaurants. It also offers some of Austin's best scenic treasures including Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool and the famous Austin Hike and Bike Trails. Residents here are never short of places to go or things to do.

Students here attend Austin ISD which has highly rated elementary schools. South Austin attracts those who want to live in a neighborhood near an urban setting. The real estate here is still reasonably priced: with a variety of properties for every price range, you're sure to find one that suits your needs. It definitely is a unique area and lives by the motto Keep Austin Weird more than any other area.
