You will need to find a local realtor to help you find a property, and if you've never been to Austin then you should come and visit and have a look around the area.

Servicing your real estate need is my priority!
I also own a new home construction company so I know that side of the business very well, worked for a new home company for quite a while as well, and have a great team of lenders, inspectors, etc. on my team. I also do not charge anything for my extensive services. One thing you should note is that if you are going to visit Austin and visit any new home communities, you MUST have your Realtor present at the time of your first visit, otherwise the new home builder will try to separate you from your Realtor as typically the buyer does not have the negotiating experience or clout that a Realtor with a large company like mine, Keller Williams Realty has. In fact, Keller Williams Realty is #1 by a landslide in the greater Austin area and I typically get better deals for my clients because we sell more homes than other brokers typically.
Free to contact me and I'll be happy to discuss your situation, what your short and long-term goals are, and what I may be able to do to assist you! Thanks, Joe

There are actually a lot of different areas that may be of interest of you. It would really make sense to check them out. Set up a day or two where you can see the different neighborhoods and locations and then see how that fits into your lifestyle. I would also advise looking at what different builders have to offer as well. Some may offer better floor plans that suit your needs better.
If you would like to talk about this more please feel free to call or email me. I am also a Texas wholesale mortgage broker and Realtor so I can help you with any financing questions if you are not a cash buyer. The more you know and understand the area the better you will be able to make the right decision for you.
Hope this helps.

I work with some investors that like to purchase home to sell or rent and make money,
If you can work remotely It would be the best for you to buy a home here in Austin and live in
it and if didn’t liked it. be able to sell it in a few years and make some money or rent it, Austin is
growing and when you purchase a home in its market price or hopefully lower you can’t go
wrong,,, don’t limit your search to only one area, if you like to get more information, let me know
I will e-mail you the list of homes that I believe is a sound purchase for your situation.
I am an architect as well as a broker and have lots of building experience. My background provides a unique vision to help my clients find the perfect homes for their situation. I have helped my clients get great builder incentive deals for new homes.
Send me some more detailed criteria and price ranges and I'll get started finding you a great home!

If you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to contact me anytime without obligation. I can certainly help you with resale, new construction, and achieving your home buying goals.
Looking at the specific area you have in mind i do see a couple of resale homes also you may want to consider. I see a 3840 sqft home for 239K putting price per sqft at about $62.52 and built in 2001. Unless you are just driven to buy new, then you might want to take a peek at the resales in the area. Especially to determine the general after market trends in the area. While that area hasn't been as historically known to appreciate as much as some other parts of Austin. The price per sqft has been attractive for some time, and if the value in those terms is your goal, then you are on to a great area. If this is an investment to potentially rent or sell in a not to distant future scenario, then I might instead lead you to some other areas. Also I have linked here the Austin Crime stats per zip code for consideration. http://austintexas.gov/page/crime-information-listed-zip-code
Let me know if you want someone who appreciates the art of negotiation to assist you in your transaction as I do love representing clients as a BUYERS AGENT. This is certainly a sellers market in general so consider getting a little local firepower on your side. Especially with builders like KB, the costs are paid by the seller, so really, it is only to your advantage to be represented. Also I track all the latest incentive packages offered by the local builders.
I hope this was helpful!

We moved from the Bay Area because of all the wrong reasons.
Me and my family never been more miserable in our lifes like being in Austin.
Never hated a city more than I hate this place.
Do yourself a huge favor, stay where you are, wherever it is, it's better than down here.
