Dear Pat, The bounderies slice down the middle of some streets so the most effective search would not use streets or zips. I can set up an automatic search within this school district if you give me a little more criteria like number of bedrooms and price range, minimum and maximum square footage. You may follow this link to see the bounderies of Westwood HS: http://schools.roundrockisd.org/transportation/Boundaries%20…

You will find that you get less house for the money in Westlake HS area as this is some of the most expensive real estate in Austin. This neighborhood is very close to downtown and therefore more expensive. Your housing dollar will go much further in the neighborhoods that feed tinot McNeil HS, as it is further out of town (maybe 20-30 minutes from downtown). I serve all of Austin and I would be happy to send you the available listings in each of these areas.

Sincerely,
Betina Foreman, Realtor Keller Williams

Hi Pat,

My children went to Westwood, it's a great school! Here's a quick summary of the area to look at. South of 620, west of 183 and north of Oak Knoll. Some neighborhoods are Canyon Creek (most of it anyway), Anderson Mill, Spicewood Balcones, Barrington Oaks and parts of Great Hills. The zip codes are 78726, 78750 and 78759 but only the areas in those zip codes that feed into Round Rock Schools. Good luck with your search. You have made a good school choice.

Hello Pat,

I did a quick search on our MLS database for lease houses showing either Westwood HS or McNeil HS as the assigned schools.

I looked for 3 bdrm/2 ba homes that allowed pets. I found 72 houses or townhomes available for rent. If you have no pets, there were an additional 10+ options shown.

27 housing options for Westwood HS ranged from $895 for a 3 bdrm/2 ba, 1,616 Sq.Ft. Townhouse to $3,150 for a 4 bdrm/3.5 ba, 4,100 Sq.Ft. house.

45 housing options for McNeil HS ranged from $1,000 for a 3 bdrm/2 ba, 1,381 Sq.Ft. house to $1,995 for a 4 bdrm/ 2.5 ba, 2,726 Sq.Ft. house. [But there is a 5 bdrm/3.5 ba, 3,169 Sq.Ft. for $1,850 in Avery Ranch which may offer you more "bang for your buck")

As you probably know, Westlake HS is not in RRISD, but EanesISD. With the same criteria (3 bdrm/2 ba, allowing pets)I found 47 housing options showing as available with Westlake HS as the assigned HS. If you have no pets, there are an additional 12 housing options. These ranged from $1,100 for a 3 bdrm/2 ba, 999 Sq.Ft. condo to $12,000 for a 4 bdrm/4.5 ba, 3,686 Sq.Ft. house. I found 12 available housing options for Westlake HS for $2,000 or less.

If you decide that you would like some local expert help in locating your new home in Austin, I think you see that there real estate professionals ready, willing and able to provide accurate information and make your move to Austin easier and less stressful.

Pat,

Westwood is a good Round Rock ISD school and if you've noticed, they're under-going construction which is always a positive aspect.

There are approximately 97 homes on the market that feed into Westwood High School. Obviously that is a general search, without specifics such as price, # of bedrooms, etc. A few streets to look at would be Sweetwater in the Village of Anderson Mill, Barrington Way in Barrington Oaks off Spicewood Pkwy, or Spring Hollow in Balcones Village again, near Spicewood Pkwy. Those listing range from $150,000 - $250,000.

If you'd like more information and specifics, please drop me an email and good luck in your search!

Pat, you may have this information already, but here is a link that shows the school boundaries..

http://schools.roundrockisd.org/transportation/Boundaries%20…

If you'd like, I can do a search for you and email you some listings. If you have a Realtor helping you with this, by all means, have them do a search with your specific criteria. That would be the easiest route to you.

Let me know if I can help you!

Pat:

Great decision. I can send you a list of rent houses that fall within Westwood if you would like. It is a bit harder to provide streets that are included.

Just contact me and I would be glad to send these over.

Thanks and goodluck.
