Central Texas is fast becoming the place to be if you’re actively pursuing a career in technology, medical, or sales. The area between Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, Austin, & San Antonio (commonly referred to as “The Texas Triangle”) is projected to have a population of just under 23 million people by the year 2030. This growth rate has been further accelerated with the influx of buyers into the Central Texas market caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The housing markets in the major cities have seen home prices skyrocket in the last year, with a little end of price relief in sight.
Located just outside the “official” borders of the Texas Triangle, is the hidden gem of Central Texas’ Highland Lakes community; Marble Falls. Just an hour outside of Austin, Marble Falls is positioning itself as one of the premier destinations for anyone looking to move to Central Texas.
Here are 5 reasons why Marble Falls should be at the top of your list when you’re considering moving to Central Texas
Proximity to EVERYTHING
Marble Falls is located at the intersection of US Hwy 281 (north and south) & Farm to Market Road 1431. At the southern end of town sits what will become the “future main intersection” of Marble Falls, where the meeting of US Hwy 281 & State Highway 71 gives direct access to Austin and will provide our community with three New Developments in Marble Falls (and over 4000 new single-family homes added at this intersection alone within the next 5-10 years)
Hwy 281 is the main alternative to traveling North and South from Dallas to San Antonio and provides Marble Falls with easy access to either city. Farm to Market 1431 is Marble Falls’ Direct access to the northern shores of Lake LBJ to the West and provides an amazingly scenic drive to the north side of Austin by traveling to the East. If you’re a nature lover, be sure to check out the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge while you’re out there!
Marble Falls is also the sister city to Horseshoe Bay, TX, home to the BEAUTIFUL Horseshoe Bay Resort on Lake LBJ. Be sure to follow the following link if you are looking for Horseshoe Bay Real Estate!
Outdoor Adventure Awaits
Are you an outdoor enthusiast? Marble Falls and the surrounding Highland Lakes area are teeming with numerous outdoor activities that you and your family will love! Lake Marble Falls is home to Marble Falls’ annual LakeFest, which is home to one of the top Drag Boat tournaments in the world! Sweet Berry Farms is an award-winning place for the family to enjoy farm life in a quiet, kid-friendly setting. Located just outside the city limits both Longhorn Caverns State Park and Inks Lake State Park provide more than enough camping, hiking, swimming, spelunking, fishing, and biking to keep even the most avid outdoorsman occupied for years to come.
Leverage your buying power
Housing prices in the Austin Metro Area have SKYROCKETED in the last year. While Marble Falls has seen some similar rates of increase, the cost basis at the time of this growth still puts the median home price in our area considerably lower than that of our urban neighbors to the East. With the influx of inventory currently set to explode in the near future and the aforementioned proximity to both the north and south sides of Austin Metro, there is no better time than now to start looking for your new home in Marble Falls!
