I have sold to home buyers as well as investors. All have done well when they decided to sell. Listen to a local knowledgeable Realtor for the real low down on each area.

Of course-- all of Austin Metro area will appreciate -- but there is so much vacant land in that area. If you decide to sell your home in 3 years--- you will certainly be competing with the builder and that doesnt bode well for home values.
If you like the home, and you are satisfied with the price, which is where I come in, then you should buy.
