An Overview of the Bertram Area Real Estate Market
(Why so many are moving to the Bertram area)
Bertram is in the unique position of being one of the top areas of the country for affordable housing, acreage, and quality of life!
The October 2008 issue of Forbes Magazine stated that there were four Texas cities in the top ten nationwide that were “Best Bang for Your Buck Cities” and they are Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas. Bertram is now considered to be a “bedroom community” of Austin, and the Bertram area has that sought-after “small town atmosphere”.
