Where in Austin should I buy a condo?

I'm looking for a 2 bed 2 bath condo in Austin Area. Planning to live there while going to school at UT and also have a roommate. Any recommendation of the neighborhood that has good potentials? Thanks!

Since you're planning on going to UT, check the school's bus routes and try to get a condo near one of those. Personally, I'd recommend something off of the Enfield Road route (http://www.capmetro.org/gismaps/maps/662.html), west of MoPac (loop 1). It is a nice neighborhood, traffic going to school/downtown wouldn't be as bad at other places, and it's a good place to be after you graduate.

Far West is probably cheaper, but as the name implies, it is further out. Traffic (even on the bus) will be a factor. North campus is a good neighborhood too, but mostly houses and apartments for rent.

Check out www.Realtyprosaustin.com. Great website and offices at 31st and Speedway 1 block off UT Campus. Hyde Park, West Campus, Tarrytown (Along Enfield As suggested) Far West is also an option. The Areas are all quite different so it kind of depends on your personal preferences. West Campus tends to be Undergrads, North Campus/Hyde Park tends to attract more of the Grad/Law students. Give me a call if you want more info. I am A broker.

We chose to live at Bella Terra. It is off Parmer and I35. I work at UT and it is about a 10 minute drive to UT but the prices are so much better than downtown or near campus. Your money goes alot farther and there are some great deals. They have some condos for lease as well.

Our condo was amazing. Switch Willo Condos, Unit 20. Pet friendly, secluded, excellent roommate plan. Living area/game room/media room upstairs. Great pool. Easy access to 183 & Mopac. Lots of shopping. New upgrades throughout. Lots of storage. Lots of extras. We're still in the process of moving out (so it's still being cleaned, carpets steamed, etc.) but we loved the condo & it s available for viewing for Rent or to Purchase!! Hope you'll check it out!!

There are several areas close to UT. It depends on if you want to be walking/biking distance to UT or if you want to be in the downtown/central area and your price range. You can search all of the properties on the Abor MLS at www.theleadersrealty.com. I would love to help you with your condo search. You can contact me via email at kristee@theleadersrealty.com or my cell is 512-695-5144.
