I have the flexibility to move anywhere in the U.S. right now and i'm looking to invest in a couple SFR homes around the 200,000-300,000 range and also to live in the area myself. Ideally, i'd like for this to be in a city with diverse job growth, low crime, and decent scene for young adults in their 20's-30's. I really like Austin so far and aside from the high property tax it fits all my other criteria. I'm wondering if there are more cities out there that fit this profile.

Take a look at Minneapolis. If you can stand the cold.

Cold doesn't bother me at all as long as the area has solid economic fundamentals and a vibrant young population moving in.

Nashville is seen by many as the "next Austin".

Paradoxical you might what to try to look into these cities. Austin, Oklahoma City, Nashville, Minneapolis, & Denver all have good job growth and a steady low unemployment rate.

lol. u think OKC is? It's not, believe me. I doubt than any are. The US in general has been in a downward spiral for about 15 years now, and it's going to get worse, too. They've known for 40 years that the baby boomers are going to collapse SS, and they haven't done squat about fixing it.
