Where Are People Actually Buying?
The sleepy suburbs of Austin aren’t so sleepy anymore.
“Back in the day, Cedar Park and Leander were sleepy little communities where people had to drive into Austin to be able to shop, eat or have any form of activities,” Horton said. “Today, they have all types of activities and restaurants and shopping at their fingertips. So they can live, work and play right there in their own backyard.”
Horton has seen a lot of changes in her 30-year career. The biggest is showing up this year.
“People are not investing in Austin proper,” she said.
The proof is in the numbers.
Leander tops the list
