So my partner and I are in the beginning phases of moving back to Austin, I spent 4 years at UT then to Houston, he's orig from NYC and not familiar with Austin at all. My only experience with Austin housing is student-friendly apartments, but we're looking to buy a home. Anyone have a good place online to start? Obviously, we may employ a realtor, but would like to get an idea of what/where we want to be first. I'd prefer to be closer to the city center, but that's not a huge concern. I will be working from the house, he does not yet have a job (like I said, this is preliminary searching). Looking to spend 150-250K on a 2-3 bedroom home, with a bit of a yard for the pup, but nothing that big. If you're familiar with Houston, we'd like something similar to the Heights area, so I was thinking just outside Hyde Park (isn't it becoming full of a lot of McMansions?) or the area north of say, 38th st? Again, I haven't been in Austin other than for games and such for years and have never really become familiar with the neighborhoods outside of campus/student-friendly, so I guess I could be considered a brand new resident of Austin. Any help (or realtor recs) would be appreciated!
