Southwest is a good area, there are nice rental properties to choose from and you have quick access to a few of the different ACC campuses. Have him email me email@example.com if he would like a list of the properties in southwest Austin.
Many details to find the best place for your son and his wife. Which campus will they be attending, they range from cental, south, north. Please have your son give me a call or email me. In Austin, we are at high occupancy and rental prices are up. Details will be, size of rental, price range, pets, when they need to move, co~signers, etc,
Enjoy your weekend,
There are several ACC campuses around town. Probably the one with the greatest number of available rental units as well as public transportation is the Northridge campus just off of Metric on Stonehollow Drive (7878). MLS area 2N alway has a lot of rentals available in quite a wide range of prices.
Have them contact me for help in finding the right place. I do a lot of leasing for folks.
