About Real Estate in Travis Country
The main housing type on the Travis Country real estate market is the single-family home. Construction began in Travis Country in the 1970s. Over the next couple of decades, construction in the area continued. Because of this, it is possible to find homes that were built in the 1970s, the 1980s, and the 1990s. There are two main sections of this popular Austin neighborhood. Trailwood Country was where building first began in this community, so that is where buyers will find the highest concentration of homes from the ‘70s and ‘80s. The rest of the community was largely developed in the late ‘80s and ‘90s.
Just because these homes were built a few decades ago does not mean that these homes feel old or are in need of repair. Many of these houses have been in the care of loving homeowners who have done their due diligence and made repairs as necessary over the years. It is also not uncommon for many of the homes to have been renovated to include more modern interior designs.
