Flying down to Texas for an interview in Georgetown Texas. Sounds pretty interesting. Thoughts on the Georgetown/Round Rock area?

Schools? Property values? Crime? Ect?

Thanks!

Round Rock is one of the safest cities its size in the USA. Georgetown is safe too, has more retirees and is the county seat.

Looks like housing prices are reasonable. No way you get 2800sq/ft and a half acre for $165k in KC.

Stable market?

The market appears to be bottomed out unless the economy as a whole takes another big dive.

Like I posted in the other thread, Round Rock is awesome. I would live there in a hearbeat. Safe and clean, and its close enough to Austin.

Very stable, my house has actually gone up in value since I bought it in '07. Best part is all the representatives from Williamson county are conservatives.

It's Williamson Co. and they take a tougher stance towards crime. You have all the good ranges to shoot on there too.

I don't know where you found that deal but you should jump on it. I've been in the area since 1984. Can't really see myself living anywhere else. I can't imagine you wouldn't like it.

Here's one I saw but not the one on half acre. Not sure where that one was. I must have looked at a 100 houses today in Georgetown, Round Rock and Cedar something or other.

Do all you crazy texans have shrubbery in your driveway?

Don't know if it matters to you, but the Williamson County Sherriff won't sign off on NFA. Travis County will.

I moved to RR about 4.5 years ago. Good town though watch out where you buy. I bought a new house in a new developement only to find out most of the properties around me were rentals. Over the last 3 years a whole lot of shit moved in and is destroying the area. If you have kids make sure they dont end up at Stoney Point. Also dont let the prices lure you in... You really get what you pay for down here. They are throwing up houses in a matter of weeks and it shows in the quality.

I dont want to sound bad on this so I want to clarify.

I love the area but I wish I had rented for a while and spent a little more time looking around.

Round Rock wouldn't sign for a suppressor at least as of a couple years ago. Although maybe that has changed. I've seen Wilco sign for SBR.

Liberal Black Sheriff of Travis County signs off on all NFA. Conservative White Sheriff of Wilco doesn't.
