Getting down to business
Bring your laptop
Between 500 and 600 high-tech firms operate in Austin, from IBM and AMD to the latest startups. And 44 percent of Austin households (twice the national figure) have a personal computer.
This is a
city with a heart and with a soul. Cosmopolitan, yet unpretentious.
One of the nice things about Austin is that you can get a whole lot of house for much, much less than somewhere like San Diego, New York or any other major metropolitan area. New luxury condominiums can be had for $150,000 to $200,000. Existing homes start at about $100,000. New 2000 square feet-plus brick or stone homes with large backyards are available from about $225,000 on up. New mansions - and I do mean mansions! - start at about $300,000, with high-end upgraded 4,500 square feet-plus homes available for $500,000 to $800,000 depending on location.
If you have a home with lots of equity and are thinking of cashing out to stretch your money in an inexpensive area, Austin should definitely be on your list!
