So, Gayle, I'm curious....
Did you connect with anyone on here? Did you respond to anyone with any more (specific) information about what you are looking for?
I've read thru some answers on here and I'm starting to also notice that your question has another (general) terminology that has REALTORS giving general answers.
In regards to "interested in Hill Country"....
Many people consider Austin Texas "in the Hill Country", therefore you could live pretty much anywhere out here and claim to live "in the Hill Country".
So, my question is: Do you want to live in a neighborhood that winds through valleys of pure Hill Country with incredible views that resemble the Hills of Malibu California? (cliffside homes, sloped Lots, views for miles, sunsets to die for!)
Do you want a home that sits on a level Lot in a peaceful neighborhood (no views), but allows you to drive home with a view of the Hill Country?
Do you just want to live near the Hill Country and near Downtown Austin?
I can give you Hill Country views within 3 miles of Downtown (and even with a view of Downtown) for under $200,000. But how much space do you need, and what is more important to you?
And of course I can give you cliffside, rolling terrain, and much more. All the way up to $1m, everywhere in between, and beyond.
So again, I'm curious to know if you've responded with anybody here, and if you've made any progress?
