As a Realtor, I can tell you that it is non-stop here. Properties are flying off the market in every price range (even in the million dollar range). As an investor, you'll be pleased to know the lease market is also very hot. All those people moving here don't necessarily want to purchase right off the bat, so they rent.
If you'd lke to visit more, please feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to elaborate. Best of luck to you.

Forbes Magazine picked Austin recently as the fastest city in America to recover economically over other metropolitan areas.
Samsung is investing $1,000,000,000 in new technology to revamp their plant in Austin. Apple is expanding and bringing more jobs here, while downsizing part of their operation in Northern, CA (this alone should be a substantial indicator of things to come when the largest corporation in America begins moving more jobs away from California and toward Austin, TX!)
