Georgetown TX Real Estate Is On Everyone's Radar
Georgetown's not a secret anymore to those moving to Central Texas from other states. For those considering the growing communities of Central Texas, none have quite the charm and historic elegance of Georgetown. Nestled on the edge of the Texas Hill Country and home to stunning wide-open spaces and teeming with red poppies in the spring, Georgetown TX real estate offers buyers the best of everything that Central Texas has to offer.
Located 26 miles north of state capital Austin, Georgetown's distinctive Victorian architecture defines homes and businesses around its famous square. The oldest university in Texas, Southwestern University, was founded in Georgetown in 1840. Georgetown even has its own lake --the pristine Lake Georgetown, which is great for boating, hiking, bass fishing and swimming.
Georgetown Has Great Outdoor Living
One of the most attractive aspects for homebuyers looking at Georgetown is the city's awesome outdoor life. There's award-winning hike and bike trails and parks that make the best of the winding San Gabriel River. Central Texas' year-round comfortable weather also makes it easy to get outside: with an average of 225 sunny days per year and temperatures from the 50’s and 60’s in winter to the 90s in summer.
Georgetown's Low Tax Rates Also Spark Interest
Everybody knows Texas is great for getting away from high taxes. But even among Central Texas communities, Georgetown enjoys regionally low property taxes. It's a central element of the city's appeal and a big reason for its continued growth.
Historic charm, great outdoor living and low taxes--Georgetown TX real estate has it all. I hope you'll give Georgetown homes for sale a close look as you consider your Central Texas move. I'd love to show you around.
