This will depend on what your price range is for a 'fixer upper. You can get a fixer upper in 10N & 10S for $140-180K. Or you could move a little more central and see a larger return on your money if you invest in 78704. This area will have fixer uppers for $275-$325, but your return is far greater. There are some homes in 78704 over a million dollars. Some homes have large 1/3+acre lots with mature trees. Also this area is 5 minutes or less to downtown. Call me, and give me a price range you want to stay within and I can send you some actual listings. Also if your purchase is under $200K I know a lender that will pay your closing costs. Call me.

I totally agree with areas 10n & 10s being a great ft for your needs.
Although they are not as close in the the city center..homes in Austin West of I35 that feed to the Round Rock ISD are desired by families who lease because of the Schools.
In Round Rock..North East subdivisions are starting to be more desired because of the New Shopping..Hospital & University.
I work often with investors who want to buy lease homes or "flippers" & search daily for the best deals for them.
