My wife and I are trying to move back to Austin ASAP. I work out of town, southeast of Austin and will commute 2-3 times a week. My wife is looking for a job, and has a few leads on some downtown. Once we move, I may start looking for something closer to home. I need recommendations on areas to live, both for commute times to downtown and lifestyle. I am thinking South Austin may be the place for us, but I really don't know anything about the area. We are going to rent, and I've seen some decent homes in the area within our price range. The only reason that I think the South or Southeast areas would be good is the price range and the reduced commute time for me to get out of town. Any help would be appreciated. I only lived around campus when I was there last (left in 2005).
