This is a small community and just on Trulia there are 86 homes in the +2,000 sq ft, 3-2 300K to 700K range so thought his question was still pertinent.

Why are people still answering this question years after it was posted? Shouldn't it be closed to new answers after a reasonable period of time?

Dripping Springs ISD encompasses as huge area in square miles and is a 4A district. Maybe the huge size of the geographical area skews it to look like there are an extraordinary number of homes for sale. They sell though. This is a growing area. The school district is exemplary and the high school ranked 7th for 4A in the state (see our DSISD web site for all the awards!) I am 8 minutes to all schools and sports fields and horse park and less than 5 minutes to groceries, dry cleaning, etc. I am 25 minutes to downtown so can be having a glass of wine at the Long Center in no time. Low low crime. High performing students. Quiet. Way less crowded than Cedar Park or Round Rock and easier to get into Austin (25 min. to Zilker/Long Center) and great schools. Houses aer reasonable. Come on down.

No water, bad traffic, high prices, oak wilt, global warming.

Dear Mike,
There is a mix of new and resale homes in the area. The reason there are so many is there is a demand for homes close to Austin, but away from the crush of the city. Dripping Springs is desirable for many reasons. There are some lovely resale homes with lots of land about 30-40 minutes from Austin. There are several new home communities, Belterra & Rim Rock & LedgeStone that are starting new homes every day. These communities really appeal to the California buyers relocating to Austin area. If you need help or have more questions please let me know how I can help.

There are only 187 homes for sale in Dripping Springs. Many of those are new homes like in Belterra and some of the other new developments which has sprouted up in this fast past growing area. Another source of these home are the many small and private builders out in this area that have built homes and inventory with no takers. With the new HWY 290 being widened, and the Hill Country Galleria on just the other side, the area is booming. Many shops and well as a HEB have been slated for the area as well. As a realtor who lives out here, there are some REALLY great deals to be had......
