Hello! I’d be moving to Austin from Washington DC later this year. Both me an my husband are switching jobs based out of Austin. His office will be closer to Domain and mine will most likely be downtown.
I am reaching out to this community for any suggestions on what budget to consider for buying a house. We are late 20s/early 30s couple who don’t have kids or pets yet! We are financially stable and are comfortable spending 650k for our first property. Although we don’t have kids yet but will start planning in a couple of years and are open to adjusting our budget for a good elementary and middle school district.
I know Austin is booming and more recently real estate prices have spiked 30-40% in some neighborhoods in the last year. I’ve visited Austin several times in the past and my budget probably is based antiquated data, since things have changed rapidly. We also don’t mind commuting but would like that to be under 30mins (one way – post COVID) for both of us.
