South and Southwest Austin Real Estate Markets
The area lying south of the Colorado River and running south to the Hays County line is commonly referred to as South Austin and loosely referred to as “Bubba Land.” Southwest Austin is basically anything west of IH-35, south of the river and spans to the western edge of Travis County. South Austinites are proud of their southern slice of the city and the lands beyond. Home to landmarks such as Zilker Park with it’s eternal 68 degree spring-fed pool; the legendary dance hall – The Broken Spoke; the once late night hangout and now a Bob Cole restaurant with a live music venue – Hill’s Cafe; the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center; The Veloway bike & skate trail; Barton Creek; St. Edward’s University and much, much more, South Austin is blooming! Often thought to be the more “laid-back” side, South and Southwest Austin real estate is experiencing a spurt of growth with newly added retail and office complexes, hospitals, schools and master-planned communities all adding to the comforts of life in South and Southwest Austin. And we can’t forget South Congress, dubbed “SoCo” with it’s eclectic collection of shops and eateries, vintage food trailers and now the ever increasing number of new condo complexes. Areas west of Mopac continue to develop with the recent additions of another Alamo Draft House movie theater, more medical emergency & rehab facilities, banking, restaurants and other similar conveniences.
