Where in Texas to invest in?

13 Replies

Good morning all,

I've heard Austin Texas market is booming due to Amazon moving their Corperate there soon. 

1) Anyone on this BP currently invest out of state in Texas? 

2) And which part of Texas should be best to invest in (beside Austin <= too expensive). 

3) I also heard Texas has the highest crime rate as well and why do landlords/investors willing to take the rest?

Thank you, and looking forward for response

1. Yes

2. I invest in Austin. Cost is relative, it's about returns for me.

3. Where did you hear that? Austin is incredibly safe and so are most of the cities in Texas.

Hi Jordan,

Thank you for your response. Sorry I should've clarifed it a little more on the Crime Rate. Was not talking about Austin, I mean certain area in Texas, like (Houston)

 

Austin has been booming for 2+ decades and it has nothing to do with Amazon

It is impossible to answer the question as Texas is a huge state>  What are your goals?

I went to school at UT and had the chance to purchase SFR's near the campus and South Austin. I passed on it. Boy did I miss that train...
