Have any of y'all started looking at housing yet, or are you just going to wait to look for housing when it gets closer? I've been looking online for 3 hours and haven't had much success in finding affordable places to live online + places that allow a dog (I have a 6 month-old puppy that I just can't imagine giving away)
Possibly going to ASW, but it's looking like I'll make the April 10th one because of school.
I have. I'm looking to buy a house either east or west of campus. I've read that it's a better commute that way.
Unless you have a lot of money, you shouldn't spend too much time looking west of campus. Neighborhoods west of campus are, in order:
West Campus (You don't want to live there)
Pemberton Heights/West Enfield (Austin's old old money)
Tarrytown (Austin's newer old money)
West Lake Hills (Austin's expensive suburb)
It's affordable once you get past Rob Roy (new new money) to the Cuernavaca area (aka Billy Bob Roy), but that's too far out relative to what you could get in other directions.Here's a heat map.
