Imagine you’d invested in Silicon Valley real estate before the big tech boom.
You probably wouldn’t even be reading this post – you’d be drinking a fruity drink on some tropical beach!
What if you could predict the next “big thing”? To buy now in the next city set to explode with innovative tech sector growth?
While there’s never a guarantee, Realtor.com recently posted an article sharing their thoughts on where tech-minded buyers should set their sights.
It just so happens that Taylor Morrison builds communities in 3 of the top 4 tech-savvy markets! Ready to get in on the ground floor?
#1 – University Influences Austin, Texas Real Estate
New homes in Austin have quite a bit going for them.
Access to bright young graduates at the massive University of Texas means local incubators are buzzing with startup dynamism. And every year the popular South by Southwest conference sparks a new wave of upstart energy.
Compared to tech markets like San Francisco, buyers can get into a much larger home with a backyard and room to breathe for less than half the price.
Consider a smaller floor plan and the savings go even deeper. Several homes at Vizcaya in Round Rock feature roomy layouts in the mid $200s.
#2 – Atlanta Homes Meet Google Fiber
Atlanta’s tech reputation is so far off the map that you’ll likely be shocked to learn that the area has spawned nearly 2,000 technology companies. Yes, two thousand!
With crazy fast internet through Google Fiber and Georgia Tech’s world-renowned on-campus incubator pumping out ideas, it’s easy to see where this market is headed.
But for now, new property is incredibly affordable for such a vibrant, urban setting. An exquisite home can be had for the same price you’d pay for fixer-uppers elsewhere. Luxury Atlanta townhome communities offer a sophisticated lifestyle option for the next generation of technology wunderkind.
#4 – Raleigh-Durham, NC & the Research Triangle
The great thing about buying a new home in Raleigh is the abundance of stunning suburbs offering low prices and high quality of life. New homes in Apex, Cary and Wake Forest offer the perfect blend of small town feel, charming architecture and easy access to the famed Research Triangle. The business park is home to a prominent research center for biotechnology & engineering and cutting-edge companies like IBM, Cisco and Sony Ericsson.
Topping the list of reasons to live in Raleigh are an abundance of universities, low unemployment and strong job growth.
What Do You Have to Lose?
Even if you don’t strike it rich and become a millionaire real estate tycoon, it sure can’t hurt to live where business is booming!
Affordable homes, high-paying engineering careers, fantastic gated communities. Which up-and-coming tech town is on your radar?
