Elephant on the Road
Clients ask all the time, is traffic hurting the Four Points Area? The honest answer is “yes.” It is a topic that has become the “elephant in the room” or in this case, the “elephant on the road.” It does affect home sales in our area however, not any more than in any other growing city.
Forbes ranked Austin 4th on the list of most congested U.S. cities. Yet, Austin is also ranked:
- #1 fastest growing city
- #4 safest city in the U.S. (with population over 500,000)
- #1 economy in the country
- #6 high-tech city, just to name a few.
Traffic is the downside to a thriving metropolis. Go to Paris, Boston, San Francisco – all with horrible traffic yet people still live there, want to go there and their home values still rise.
