I had to make the same decision a few years ago...It all depends on which side of Parmer Lane your on in Avery Ranch. Partners in Building, Drees, Wilshire Homes and Morrison Homes (now Taylor Morrison) built some fabulous floor plans east of Parmer Lane. There is a neighborhood right next to Avery Ranch called Oakbrook. Large wooded lots and great one story floors plans! While more plain Jane homes are west of Parmer. Great Hills comes with convience to Downtown Austin, great shopping and restaurants!!!! Avery has it all coming!
I've recently come accross several great foreclosures in Avery....I've owned older (1950's) and new homes, and I sure love my newer home! The floor plans tend to be better and the bathrooms and kitchens larger!
Decisions, Decisions.... Interview both neighborhoods by talking with the neighbors and remember, location, location, location! If your in Avery try to get mature trees or greenbelt location!
