Austin is known for topping “best places to live” lists, so when it nabbed a spot on a Hotspot Rental list we were not surprised. Two Austin neighborhoods made the list of the 25 hottest neighborhoods in the country, the Austin American Statesman reports.

The best areas to live in Austin.

Austin’s Holly neighborhood nabbed the 12th spot on the list. It scored high on the budget, weather, and walkability measures of the ranking.  

Furthermore, Central East Austin was named the 10th hottest neighborhood in the US. It did well in the same categories as Holly and both scored low in the entertainment measure.

The list took into account walkability, transit, budget, entertainment, lifestyle, and weather. They measured how many bars and restaurants were in a neighborhood, local taxes, how severe the seasons were, and pet friendliness.

Finally, Houston’s Lower Westheimer neighborhood was the only other area in Texas to make the cut.  

It is no surprise why a city like Austin nabs a spot on the hottest neighborhoods list.
