About South Central Austin Real Estate

By Tatyana Selezneva

South Central Austin is famous for being the cultural heart of Austin’s unique live music, food trucks and shopping scene. Well-established single-family homes dominate the neighborhoods in the South Central area, and vacant lots are difficult to find. Just south of the river, with downtown basically a few blocks away, residents enjoy proximity to iconic bars to experience the nightlife and music festivals going on almost non-stop in the city center.
