Real Estate Investor · Austin, Texas


What strategies are working well in Austin, TX today?
I ask because the odds are good that I could land a job there and I think it is a good idea to invest where you are... Especially at the start.



Real Estate Investor · Round Rock, Texas


Austin is a very tight market right now. If you can figure out a way to get permits building is a great way to make money right now.

Any Residential Zoned land for sale?



Developer · Austin, Texas


There is a lot of land for sale.

Geographically, Austin is a big area so your land acquisition strategy can be to either buy older tear-downs, which are usually more central, or go out further and buy brand new land. There are some lots available central, but they're priced the same as the tear-downs.

I'm not sure about the prices and competition for land out in the burbs, but as @Bryan Hancock said, the Austin market is tight right now so if you're looking inside the city, competition can be fierce.



Real Estate Broker · Austin, Texas


The rental market is extremely good right now in Austin. We are seeing good opportunities in mismanaged & under rented multifamily properties. Buying them low, fixing them to maximize rents, then either holding as a long term cash flow properties or selling to another investor for a profit.

That's exactly what we're searching for. We're in Louisiana, looking to reach outside the area and Austin is a prime candidate. Any pointers for an exo researching the area?



Real Estate Investor · Round Rock, Texas


We have written probably 50 contracts this year and had 5 or so accepted. Most of the things we have purchased have been off market. So yeah....things are very tough; especially stuff on market.
