Austin, Texas

With nearly a million people, Austin, Texas has a good mix of what people love most about big cities and smaller communities. At about 1 hour and 15 minutes from Fort Hood, Austin is often the weekend destination for single soldiers and military families. Single soldiers enjoy the club and restaurant scene at 6th Street. Families enjoy the shopping and activities at the rivers, lakes, natural springs and state parks.

Austin is a major technology center with top employers such as Dell, 3M, Apple, HP, Google, Facebook, Ebay, etc. As the capital of Texas, Austin is also a major government center with many State and Federal Government agencies being based here. Austin is a younger city than most with the majority of the population being under 45 years of age. The youthfulness of Austin is further enhanced by the University of Texas and Austin Community College.

Austin has greatly benefited from the Great Texas Housing Boom, with home prices having increased over 10% in 2015 alone. There simply is not enough housing to meet demand. Additionally, as more and more people move to the Sun Belt and particularly to major cities in the Sun Belt, demand is not expected to ebb any time soon.
