I would suggest that you work with a local realtor and determine which area(s) that you like and ask the realtor how that area performs. You can have an analysis and see how well the area performed for the past 1 year, 2 years, 5 years and so forth. Also find out whether the city has any future plan about the area. This will be a little tough as any economy downturn can change any future plans.
I agree with Bill Austin below on the factors that can effect home resale and that location is very important in purchasing a property. You can update a home so it looks nice but you cannot change the location of the home. As with school, sometimes the city rezone the area and you could ended up in a different school the next year or even sooner!
I hope this helps. Give me a thumbs up or choose best answer if my answer helps. I also know of a real good realtor in Austin if you need one.

Servicing your real estate need is my priority!
A home's resale is usually based on the same 3 factors in every city and during every economic climate.
1) Location: This is either a buyers commute time or life style choice.
2) Schools: Based on a buyers perception of the schools that serve the address.
3) Price/Condition: Self explanatory
I'd be happy to help you analyze your needs & where to look if you choose to work with me & my team.

I've had a book published on Amazon called Buying a Home: Don't Let Them Make a Monkey Out of You. It'll be the best $6 you've ever spent. Follow the link below.
Best of luck!
As it was said you need to be an informed buyer. First off buy to suit your needs and the rest will follow. Where do you want to live? Austin has a lot of unique areas that have quite different lifestyles. Where do you fit in? After you have determined the area your next bet is to do your homework. Know the area and have your agent give you as much data as possible to answer your questions and help you understand the market. I feel it is my primary job to educate my clients so they can make informed decisions.
Hope this helps.
