With an extraordinary location only ninety minutes from San Antonio, three hours from Houston, and three hours from Dallas, depending on Interstate 35 traffic, the City of Austin, Texas, is an excellent place to live. Geographically, Austin is situated in south-central Texas where the Balcones Escarpment is crossed by the Colorado River. The escarpment separates the Texas Blackland prairies from the Texas Hill Country and is also responsible for Austin’s beautiful limestone cliff formations, steep terrains, and stunning Hill Country views. Adding to the city’s widespread appeal, it encompasses a long list of very diverse yet equally remarkable communities affording prospective homebuyers seemingly endless housing options, regardless of what for which they may be looking.
