I am a Steiner resident who moved here 10 years ago. Since then we have had 3 children. We are quickly outgrowing our house more in the front of the subdivision which is over 4500 homes now. We are preparing to trade up. We will stay in Steiner and just find a larger house for our kids as they become teenagers. There are 3 elementary schools here in Steiner alone if that gives you any idea of the sense of family and community. We are very happy with the school our kids attend. Neighbors are friendly, there are tons of parks in many of the subdivisions. There are 3 pools and a lake club you would have access to. I have a Target and Walmart nearby as well as a couple grocery stores. To get to other stores for higher end shopping there is Hill country galleria and Lakeline mall both within 25 minutes or a little longer with evening traffic. I stay at home so I can't attest to daily commute traffic it is busy during the early morning and evening and that should be considered but it will be very busy at any part of town during commuter rush hours. There are nice restaurants nearby, the Oasis, Uncle Billy's, Steiner Steakhouse, Iguana Grill as well as more and downtown is about 30 minutes away. Lots of great things to do in Austin.
One other neighborhood still nearby with the hill country feel like Steiner is Riverplace. It is on 2222 but still has lots of traffic. Just another suggestion as you research options. Good luck! Hope you find the perfect house and neighborhood.
Also only two ways in and out of neighborhood and lots of traffic and they are going to build 700plus apartments that will make traffic worse
Great place to live if you are retired or work from home and dont mind driving 30 minutes to shop or to go to movies, etc-
Why so many homes come up for sale in one area, sometimes there are real reasons for it, something the current owners are familiar with, things like a highway will soon come through near by, just making this up, but often as funny as it sounds, selling homes are like mushrooms especially
in a subdivision....
One neighbor puts a house on the market - and sells it well so another one wants to move on as well.
The other thing that often happens and more so in subdivisions when they were first build a similar
family age group moved in, and then the children have grown up, the homes are getting to small, or they have had more babies, or now the high school distance from the home become important, or
they changes jobs and now the commute is too long...
It's life that happens to all of us.
You can always knock on the door of some of the selling owners and ask them why they are moving
no harm done and you can get some peace of mind to be able to decide to move there.

Figuring out where you want to live is a very important decision and there is a lot involved in making that decision. If you or your husband are working nearby it might be the ideal fit, if you are working elsewhere, you might want to investigate all your options.
There are a lot of wonderful neighborhoods in the Austin area with schools highly ranked. I would put together everything you want in your ideal neighborhood/home before limiting your neighborhoods.
Happy to help...
Since I work quite a bit with relocations, if you're not yet working with a realtor, I would be happy to speak with you and discuss assisting you in your move. I have a great team of lenders, inspectors, title companies, and the like to help you, and have quite a bit of experience all over the greater Austin area. I also have someone on my team who worked for the school system for over 20 years and has her finger on the pulse regarding any school related issues.
Feel free to click on my photo and review my credentials and client testimonials, and contact me if I may be of any further assistance.
Good luck on your move, and I can tell you that wherever you end up around Austin, you will most likely be happy. It is a great place to live! Joe Jarusinsky, Keller Williams Realty, 512-261-4415
There are exemplary schools in Leander ISD, Austin-ISD, and Eanes-ISD.
There are more centralized neighborhoods available within great school systems that offer a family friendly lifestyle.
Unless you are paying cash. It will take 30-45 days to close once we've located the ideal home. Therefore, now is a perfect time to begin your search. I commend your proactiveness.
Send me an email and I'll be glad to send you relevant information so that you and your family are well informed.

You have several answers that are all direct and to the point considering just numbers of homes for sale. As a ratio to the number in the neighborhood it's not many at all.
I am a local agent and do work in Steiner. Other than myself, of course, I'd recommend from those that chimed in here that you contact Doug Vogelsass. I've had the opportunity to work with Doug and he is top notch in my book.
1) There are many homes IN Steiner Ranch.
2) Homes are selling faster now than they have in years. http://www.statesman.com/business/real-estate/its-now-a-sell
Yes, traffic can be pretty hairy out there, but that is not much different than many other places in Austin.

Steiner Ranch is a very large master planned neighborhood and therefore it may seem like there are lots of homes for sale. Yes, traffic is bad in rush hour, but that's everywhere the same. If you want nightlife, that's mostly to be found in downtown Austin, not in suburbia (well, Steiner is in Austin, but almost like a suburb). However, if you want top schools and great neighborhood, Steiner is a great place to buy a home. There are other fine neighborhoods with great schools in the Leander ISD where you may find a beautiful home for a little less than in Steiner.
Contact me if you need information and help with your relocation, I'd be glad to help.

You can also look at Round Rock ISD in the Great Hills and Spicewood Springs area, but it will be more expensive than Lake Travis ISD. Then of course, you could consider Eanes, but the average price is $1M+.
If you need info on communities, schools, etc., call or email me and I can get you a relocation package asap!.
