I've written a few times in the past asking for information on Taylor and the surrounding areas. My husband was offered a job with a company there. It has been an emotional roller coaster. Finding a buyer for our home has been tough. We finally received an offer that we needed to counter a couple of times. In the end my husband decided to accept it because of the perfect closing date, buyer's pre-approval, and the fact they have no house to sell. It's giving us about $10,000 less than we wanted to start out with in Taylor, but since we are on an extremely tight time frame we will have to make it work.

We plan to move during the last week of June. Closing is on the 27th. Since we weren't sure we were going to end up moving and I was afraid to commit to the move emotionally we have nothing done. But that's not my big worry. I am so emotional about my 12 and almost 13 year old boys having to leave their life long friends here, their school, and our Church. They are taking it in stride but their mom is an emotional wreck. I know I am being irrational but the fear of the unknown for the boys is making me tear up every hour or so. I pray they find a school environment that they fit in to and that we find a home in which we can be happy and secure. I know everything will be fine but I'm so nervous.

We haven't found a place to live in Taylor. We are thinking the boys and I will live with my parents in San Antonio and my husband will stay in Taylor during the weekdays. Hopefully we will be able to find temporary housing within a few weeks.

Thanks again for all the advice I have received here. I appreciate it.

Congrats, get your 10K back from the house you buy

Seriously though the housing market in the outlying areas is somewhat in a funk so you will probably be ok.

You could look for places to rent. Hutto has plenty, as does Taylor. Houses though, not apartments. Round Rock is chock full of apartments lately, though. Hutto and Round Rock are close to Taylor.

Pennsylvania. I came here in '87 for college. I never intended to stay but ended up getting married and having a family. So, 20 years later I'm finally headed home. Well, close enough. I grew up in San Antonio.

Default Congrats!

Congrats on the move to Taylor! My husband and I have lived in the Summerfield community since Feb. 2006 and like it so far. It is kid friendly and a lower cost of living than the surrounding areas (i.e., Hutto and Round Rock).
