Music to Your Ears: Hays County and Austin, Texas
Music lovers and job seekers rejoice! Hays County has it all in terms of employment opportunities – close commutes and nearby Austin – the state capital that also bills itself as the music capital of the world.
“Hays County and the Austin area are headed toward expansion mode with large tech companies moving in and consumer confidence on the rise due to steady growth, rather than rapid growth,” said Brenda Wall, relocation director at ERA Colonial Real Estate in Harker Heights, Texas. “Many people move here from out of state because of the great weather and even greater job opportunities.”
Rest assured, Hays County is not all work and no play. Its close proximity to Austin, home to Austin City Limits Music Festival and South by Southwest, means residents can enjoy the best of both worlds. In addition, the area offers scenic parks and many lakes for recreation. According to Wall, there is plenty of open green-space for people and families to enjoy.
“With so much to offer, you may think Hays would be an expensive place to live,” said Wall. “But it’s quite the contrary. You can still get a great deal of property for a decent price. The average single-family home sale price is $283,179.”
