Areas around Lost Creek (78746)

Hello all. My husband might be getting a job in Austin. The offices are in the 78746 zip code, which looking online seems to be the Lost Creek area. Housing seems pretty pricey there compared to other real estate I have seen in Austin, but I know traffic in Austin can be horrible, so wondering if anyone can tell me good areas to live that are close to there but not as pricey. We are early 30s and will have a two year old and a newborn, and are looking for a very friendly young family neighborhood where we are sure to meet people since we would know noone!!

  • My husband works in that area and we live in Southwest Austin.  It takes him about 20-30 min to get to work in the morning depending on when he leaves, so not too bad.

  • I agree w/ pp's suggestions on areas.  There is a wide range of homes in S Austin, and just about all of it is young-family friendly. 

    Looking at a map, Circle C Ranch and has a wide range of houses/ prices available and has a great community setup.  You can go west towards Oak Hill for older homes, or East towards Shady Hollow.  Everything inbetween Brodie and Manchaca is going to be convenient as well.

    Good luck and welcome!
