Is it Possible to Live in a House?

Despite what you may have heard, it is possible to live in a house in Austin—even in West Campus. Austin is a city with many diverse and self-described “weird” neighborhoods that have a range of living spaces ranging from large Victorian-style houses to small efficiencies, and anything you could imagine in-between.

While it is possible to live in a house, there are fewer of them than there are apartments, condominiums, and other smaller living arrangements. Many of the units around Austin are suited for 1 or 2 people, so that should not be entirely surprising. If you are interested in living in a house, I recommend finding at least three others and start your search early! Houses are often the first things to go during the leasing season. (Which really heats up around October and November.)

If you are interested in renting a house this upcoming year, call us at Housing Scout. (512) 900-7963. Tell one of our agents that you specifically want a house, and they will make it happen for you.
