Moving to Austin

Posted

 

Austin continues to rank among the top cities in the nation for growth and stability. With the city’s rapid growth, it can become a little overwhelming to some when they are making the big move. Here are some tips to help make your move as easy as possible.

Research before you move. There are so many areas to chose from in and around Austin, that narrowing it down could be a challenge! Are you looking to have a short commute to work? Or perhaps you want to be close to the action of downtown? Is there a specific school you would like to research for your children? Whatever your lifestyle or needs, Austin has what you’re looking for! For school information I recommend visiting www.greatschools.org. This is a great resource tool to help you in your search for school information.

Another recommended site to visit is www.neighborhoodscout.com. This site will give you information on the different areas throughout Austin. This is a great tool for you to receive detailed information on your areas of interest.

Have a plan. There are a lot of steps to go through before you start packing the moving truck. Find housing before you leave, or at least know where you’ll stay while you look for a home. Start by hiring a real estate professional. With our vast knowledge of the city and access to an arsenal of tools we can make your new adventure a breeze. We can assist in finding the right area based off of your needs. Example would be if you work in the northern part of the city and want a short commute, we can narrow it down and stay within a certain radius of your job. That way when you arrive your agent will already have a list of properties to show you! This will help tremendously in streamlining you into that perfect place!
