And apparently a lot of people are going home to Austin.

Local Realtor Dee Copeland has an interesting article on her blog about what she calls “Boomerang Buyers”, people who leave home to pursue higher education and careers, then move back to their hometown in their 30s.

I have to say, though, this is not a new trend. My parents did this exact thing in their 30s. They moved away, joined the military, traveled the world, then about the time my younger brother was old enough to go to school they moved back to the town where THEY went to high school, both out of nostalgia and a need to be physically closer to aging parents.

Check it out! Dee’s also got some great tips for sellers on ways to make their property more appealing to these buyers.
