I'm a former Teacher in the Missouri City area (back in the late 70's/ early 80's) and know there will be a major adjustment living in Austin.

I recently did a transaction for an updated home on a greenbelt for under $165k. If you would like a no obligation consultation on any home or neighborhood, please feel free to contact me anytime.
You will love Austin! There is a Pioneer Crossing located east of 35 in North Austin. Pricing for homes in that area range from $150k to the low $200's. I'd be happy to discuss the criteria you want in a new home so you can make the best decision possible. If you have not received an Austin Relocation Guide, please let me know. We can mail you one.
