Welcome to our blog. Whether you’re from Austin, planning on moving here, or into flipping houses, you’re probably wondering where the best Austin neighborhoods are. Here is a list of the 10 hottest areas in Austin to buy and flip real estate.


  1.   Circle C Ranch (78739)

This master planned community is close to Barton Springs and only a 15-minute ride to downtown. Due to low demand and high supply in this area, homes are appreciating by almost $100,000 every few years.

9. Ridgeview (78737)

Because this neighborhood is so small it hasn’t really been on the radar for a lot of people so now is the perfect time to buy. For even more incentive this is one of the few places in Austin where the tax rate is under two percent.

8. Crestview (78757)

If you like working in the city but want to feel like you live in a village without the commute this is a great place. The neighborhood is older and quieter than other parts of Austin and comes with a park, pool and great schools.

7. University Hills (78723)

This is a beautiful hilly area with lots of old trees. There’s easy access to highways and plenty of older homes perfect for remodeling. This has become a favorite for younger couples without kids.

6. Deep East Austin (78721)

East Austin is one of those areas in Austin that is going through some major changes. It’s a mixed bag really; there are old and new homes but plenty of opportunity. Bonus: It’s one of Austin’s best food scenes as well.

5. Terra Colinas (78738)

Think of this West Austin area as a cheaper Lakeway area. This is one of the areas in Austin where a lot of new homes are being built so jump on it.

4. Highland Park West (78731)

This area is going to rival the luxury that only Tarrytown was thought to be able to provide. For example, three of the homes that were on the 2016 AIA Austin Homes Tour were in this area.

3. East Riverside (78741)

Thanks to the extension of the hike and bike trail this area is getting its chance in the spotlight. Expect many more developments like Travis Heights to be popping up here.

2. South Austin (78745)

This is a great area to buy an older 1970s house to renovate and flip for quite a bit of profit. It’s close enough to downtown to still feel like the house is in the city but far enough away to avoid downsides to city living like traffic jams.

1. Downtown Austin (78701)

To be more specific, Rainey Street and the Seaholm District. There is continued growth and demand for downtown lofts and developers are definitely taking notice.
