East Austin Neighborhoods

The explosive growth of the city as a whole spills over to the East Austin area, making it quite favorable for many of the newly constructed business centers and other new developments, both for commercial and residential sites. Over the last decade or so, the area has been revived by house flippers renovating their properties and new builders which led to the nearby neighborhoods seeing an increase in gentrification overall.

In East Austin, one can find any kind of architectural style which appeals to different types of people from traditional, to futuristic eco-friendly and simply functional.

Home buyers love the neighborhoods in Springdale, Forest Heights, MLK, Rosewood, Guadalupe-Saldana, Govalle Windsor Park, and Rathgeber Village, all of which are popular spots for single-family homes, townhouses and condos. Most of the vacant land lots in this area are at a higher premium and don't last very long on the market. The area is located in Travis County and includes the zip codes of 78723, 78702 and 78721.

The eclectic homes built in East Austin range from mid-century traditional to modern style, and land lot size varies from big to miniature. Over time many of the older homes have been torn down in order to use their lots for new construction, and some of the more recent homes built in Austin have emerged in the neighborhoods of East Austin particularly in the areas closest to downtown. The area has been uplifted both technologically and aesthetically due to the renovations caused by the rapid growth of the Greater Austin Area. It has become a desirable destination for prospective home buyers who wish to live relatively near to Downtown Austin.

East Austin Lifestyle

This area has an exciting nightlife to offer its residents rivaling that of downtown itself. Numerous thrills await including many bars, restaurants and the famed Austin live music. Since the East Austin area is located so close to downtown, you can easily walk to the most attractive parts of the city center, including the bars of Rainey Street.

Residents of East Austin enjoy the rich urban culture of Austin and their access to some of the best artistic venues the city offers. In the Spring, SXSW makes use of East Austin’s cultural vitality and exuberance to add to the lively atmosphere of the annual music festival.

Hope Farmers Market is available in the area every Sunday, providing people with locally grown and environmentally conscious fresh produce, as well as natural Texas honey, organic tea, pickled foods, a selection of dried herbs, spices and other incredible culinary marvels. The community is full of vigor, embracing change which leads to growth and it’s definitely among the hottest areas in town for prospective home buyers to invest in or lease a home.

East Austin Schools

Serving the East Austin area, Austin Independent School District (AISD) has about 84,500 students currently enrolled. The AISD includes 129 different schools with 16 high schools,18 middle schools, and 84 elementary schools. AISD will automatically accept students that live geographically within the district that they serve and determine whether a student living outside the district may be eligible to attend due to special circumstances, specific talents or programs only provided by certain schools.
