Round Rock Named #2 Best Place to Live in US

October 5, 2019 1:54 pm

Homes in Round Rock TX are in high demand. In fact, the city has been named the 2019 #2 “Best Place to Live in the US” by Money magazine. The magazine used a list of factors to rank 100 of the country’s top cities and found that Round Rock is one of the very best.

What makes Round Rock so great? A booming local economy is the foundation of the city’s success. It has a hot job market with a low 3.1% unemployment rate. Residents enjoy high incomes (median household income in Round Rock is $82,229) and a high rate of home ownership (61%).

Good jobs are available at tech giants like Dell, which has its world headquarters in Round Rock. The favorable local business climate attracts employers by offering tax breaks. The entrepreneurial spirit is also fostered enthusiastically in the area. No wonder Round Rock is also the second fastest-growing city in the country.

Prosperity in turn creates opportunities for excellent schools, community services and resources like parks and recreation centers. Other factors that boosted the city to the top are its relative safety and the high quality of the Round Rock Independent School District.

Buffington Homes is currently building in two Round Rock communities, Madsen Ranch and Villas at University Park. Both are master planned communities featuring spacious family homes starting in the $240’s.

At Madsen Ranch, Buffington Homes has 8 homes under construction now on Chad Loop, Chad Drive and Matt Lane. The homes are scheduled for completion between November 2019 and February 2020. The 4 bedroom home at 1313 Chad Drive is available now for $288,990.

Villas at University Park is on University Boulevard not far from the campus of Texas State University and Austin Community College. Buffington Homes has 7 homes on Sandy Brook Drive under construction now in the community with completion dates projected for October 2019 to February 2020. Buyers can also select one of 8 floor plans and choose an available building lot to customize their own home from the ground up.
