Hi Melissa,
That is a great question and I apologize that I am just now able to respond. I am a local Austin real estate investor. I have experience with all types of deals including rental property. I typically come across multiple rental deals per month. Some I sell to other investors directly, some I put on the MLS and of course if the area is hot I may keep it as my own.
Contact me if you are still interested in real estate investing as I am very active and can help you find deals.

You have 3 options.

1) You can do downtown, SoCo, Central Austin and pay a good deal more. Your place probably won't cash flow but it might come close and it will most likely appreciate. Keep in mind that is what the numbers say, I nor any other Realtor to my knowledge has a crystal ball (that works). In the mean time, renters are paying most of your larger mortgage.

2) You can go east Austin and hope the slow gentrification continues as it is the only place you can get fairly cheap real estate close to Downtown. Here your cost is low, you have a better chance to cash flow, and appreciation should be there eventually.

3) NW Austin up through Cedar Park - They are projecting a million more people to move to Williamson County which will then be equal to Travis County. That is the projection for like 2025. So if you believe that and you like appreciation then the 1431 corridor is where you want to be. Low costs as long as you are further northwest than actual NW Austin (Travis County). Should cash flow and if the numbers are correct, will appreciate significantly.

Happy to email you options in any or all of these or discuss more details at your convenience.

It depends on your investment strategy and budget. If you are ready to start investing or just thinking about it, I suggest talking to a real estate professional. One of your selection criteria in picking your agent should that the real estate agent invests in real estate themselves. They will lend their personal experience to help make you more successful.
Let me know how I can help.
