Austin Area: Named One of the Best Areas to Start a Career

Austin Area

Are you a young professional searching for the perfect place to live while you launch your career? Then the Austin area should be at the top of your list, just like it was near the top of WalletHub's comprehensive rankings of the best cities to start a career. Austin checked in at fourth in the country on the list, earning extremely high marks for both quality of life and professional opportunities. Our real estate agents have more details on why the Austin area is such a perfect place for starting your career.

There are a few primary factors to consider in searching for a city where you can start your career. Naturally, career opportunities are crucial, but once you find that job, then the quality of life becomes very important, as well. Fortunately, Austin is a place where you don't have to compromise on any of those key factors.

  • A Strong Job Market with Diverse Career Opportunities
    The job market in Austin is a major attraction for many young residents, with an average annual salary that checks in above the national average and an unemployment rate that is consistently better than the national average. Tech/digital companies like Dell Technologies, VRBO, and Indeed are all headquartered in Austin. Other major employers of young professionals include IBM, Apple, the University of Texas, the Austin Independent School District, and the many healthcare facilities located in the region.

  • A Variety of Communities to Choose From
    One of the great things about this corner of Texas is that the big city of Austin isn't the only great place to work and live. Austin's major suburbs provide easy access to the big city, but they're also cities in their own right. So whether you're shopping for Cedar Park homes for sale or you love what you see from Round Rock homes for sale, you can enjoy a suburban lifestyle that truly offers the best of both worlds. There are also many employment opportunities in the major suburbs, or you can make the quick commute to Austin for work.

  • Plenty of Parks and Outdoor Activities
    With mild winters, hot summers, and pleasant transitional seasons, there's really never a bad time to enjoy the great outdoors around Austin. Williamson County, which includes Round Rock, Cedar Park, and parts of Austin, boasts an outstanding park system that rivals any in the country. You can also find plenty of opportunities for hikes and other outdoor adventures in the area. Whether you're looking to play sports, connect with nature, enjoy a workout, or entertain the kids, there's always something to do outdoors around Austin.

How to Pick a Christmas Tree Theme

Christmas Tree Themes

If you are putting a tree up in your new home, you might be pondering the perfect theme. Choosing a theme for your tree can make it easier to choose your decorations. It can also ensure your final result looks unified, balanced, and stunning. But how do you go about choosing a theme for your Christmas tree? Here are a few tips and suggestions our real estate agents have to offer.

  • Consider a Color
    If you're looking for a simple theme and one that creates a very classy tree, consider picking a color. For instance, a tree decorated in pale blue can look wintry and soothing. One decorated in red can look traditional and homey. Once you choose a color, look for a variety of decorations in that color. Try to pick ones with a variety of textures. For instance, you could use smooth bulbs, fluffy balls, and silky flowers.

  • Showcase Your Family
    Try decorating your tree with ornaments that represent things that each member of your family is interested in. Make a special trip to the store where everyone selects ornaments. When your tree is finished, it will look like a collage of your family's interests and passions.

  • Go the Natural Route
    A naturally decorated Christmas tree can look lovely in a more rustic home. This is also a really "green" approach and an affordable one since you can collect a lot of your decorations outdoors. Look for pinecones, and tie a string around each one so you can hang it on the tree. If you find some interesting sticks, tie strings, and hangers around them, too. You can also shop for ornaments with a "natural" look, such as ones shaped like icicles or squirrels.

  • Go With Glass
    Glass bulbs are a classic Christmas tree decoration but are traditionally paired with other decor. An interesting theme would be to use only glass bulbs to decorate your tree. You could choose just two or three colors, such as red and white, or use a wide range of colors for a busier look. Using several different sizes of glass bulbs would be another way to create an interesting, appealing look.

  • Use Flowers
    A Christmas tree decorated with flowers will look natural yet creative. You could use silk flowers from the craft store. Use a hole punch to punch a hole in each one, then run a string through it. Some people like to decorate only with wintry flowers, such as poinsettias. Others like to use spring flowers, like daffodils, as a reminder that spring is coming.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you select the perfect theme for your tree. A nicely decorated tree makes a great backdrop for a holiday party. If you're still looking for Cedar Park homes for sale, feel free to contact us. We're ready and waiting to help with your home search.

6 Tips for Storing Your Holiday Decorations

Holiday Home Tips

Many homeowners love to deck the halls and turn their homes into winter wonderlands – but when the holidays are over, those decorations become more of a nuisance than a source of joy.

Before you head to your local store to stock up on holiday decorations, have a plan for how you'll store them in an organized manner. 

Thankfully, our real estate agents know a thing or two about packing and storage. Try out a few of the tips below to take the hassle out of packing up your holiday decorations this year. 

  1. Put Old Shipping Boxes to Work
    Got some leftover boxes from all of those gifts you ordered online this year? Recycle them as ornament boxes instead. Plastic and felt ornaments can go right in the box, but it's a good idea to wrap delicate ornaments in tissue paper or paper towels first. Be sure to label each box clearly and place them close to each other in your garage, attic, closet, or other storage areas. You'll want to make it easy to round them all up next year.

  2. Use a Shoe Organizer for Gift Wrap Supplies
    If you have a treasure trove of scraps of wrapping paper and ribbons to put away, consider investing in a shoe organizer to hold it all. These convenient tools attach to the back of your bedroom or closet door and give you rows upon rows of pouches for all your wrapping supplies. Large rolls of wrapping paper may not fit easily here, but all those extra odds and ends can be stored in their own pouches. As a plus, this tip keeps all of those supplies easily accessible for other gift-giving occasions throughout the year!

  3. Create Your Own Ornament Chest
    Ornament chests are wonderful contraptions that allow you to store your holiday ornaments in individual padded segments. They can be a bit pricey at most retailers, though. Why not make your own instead? Just glue some plastic or paper cups onto some cardboard trays, then layer them inside a larger box to create a tiered ornament chest. You can add some cotton balls, tissue paper, or packing peanuts to the cups to keep your ornaments safe if you're worried about them. 

  4. Re-Use Food Containers for Ornaments
    Conveniently, many holiday ornaments are just about the same size as common food items. Smaller ones fit perfectly inside egg cartons. Re-using old packaging like this is not just an affordable and eco-friendly solution – it also takes advantage of carefully engineered packaging structures that will protect your ornaments from damage.

  5. Keep Your Lights Tangle-Free
    Got too many strings of lights to keep them all straight? Wrap each string around a cardboard tube or a small flat box. This makes the strings easier to store and avoids tangles during the storage process. If you don't have any boxes or tubes, you can also wind your lights into a circle, then secure them with a bit of masking tape. 

  6. Wrangle Those Wreaths
    It's all too easy to accidentally crush a holiday wreath. Finding a good place to put these items can be tricky due to their odd shape and relatively bulky size. The best solution is to hang them up like a rack of clothes. Hang your wreaths and garlands from clothes hangers, then insert the top of the hanger through the bottom of a heavy-duty trash bag. You can then hang that bagged wreath on a clothing rack in your closet or garage. 

Always feeling like you're running out of storage space? A larger home can give you more breathing room for both storage and everyday living. Contact us to learn more about our Round Rock homes for sale and find the perfect property for your needs.
