Being one of the fasted growing cities in the United States with an estimated growth rate of nearly 3% per year, it's no surprise that Austin's neighborhoods are growing each year as well. In 2017, our site hit the milestone of having over 2,200 neighborhood profiles - and we don't expect to stop adding to the list anytime soon. By 2020, Austin is expected to be home to nearly one million people, bringing housing demand to an all-time high in the city. To accommodate this, we're likely to see more new communities popping up in the area - and we'll be here to provide you with all the information you need to decide where in Austin is right for you.
This year, North Austin and the surrounding areas of Leander, Liberty Hill, and Cedar Park saw a lot of development. New neighborhoods here include master-planned communities like MorningStar and Larkspur, each containing hundreds of newly constructed homes and amenities like pools and playgrounds. Along with areas still in development like Ammaron Hills and Trento, each home to amazing views of the hill country and lots ready for custom builds, developers focused on expansion while creating neighborhoods that still foster a strong sense of community.
There are already several neighborhoods set to open in 2018, with some selling lots in advance. The growing area of Bee Cave has newly established gated communities like Lakes Edge, opened in 2017, and still-in-development East Village, which has a selling date starting early next year. Signal Hill Estates was also just recently planned to take up a large tract of land off Hamilton Pool Road. Leander is also expanding rapidly, and is expected to open the Trails at Leander, a boutique gated community, sometime next year.
With all of this growth happening in the Austin area, the real estate market is busier than ever. Looking to buy or sell a home in Austin?
