78745: A Great Place to Live!


Cunningham Elementary

It is exciting times in the housing market this Spring and it is definitely a seller’s market. Homes are being listed and sold in the same day!  As wonderful as that is for sellers, it is also a great time for buyers.

Buyers should consider 78745 zipcode area. Many affordable homes are being sold, and you can’t beat the location.

The City of Austin is currently holding public workshops focusing on this South Austin area.  They are meeting with stake holders in the area to receive feedback on developing green space, creating a “civic center” at the Manchacha/Stassney intersection and how to enhance pedestrian mobility.

Many innovative ideas are being discussed in these meetings with great community partners such as ACC, the Austin Public Library and AISD. The mission is to explore how all assets can work together to create a stronger civic identity.

One active community stakeholder is Cunningham Elementary. This is a great elementary school located in 78745, celebrating its 50th anniversary this Spring.

Principal Amy Lloyd and her staff are working on great programs and initiatives for the students at the school.

I began mentoring a student there this Spring and am impressed each time I am at the school by the dedicated teachers and staff. Parent involvement is huge and a strong PTA exists. If you are considering purchasing a home in 78745 zipcode and have elementary school kids, I encourage you to take a tour of Cunningham Elementary.  Amy Lloyd will be happy to meet with you and tell you all about the school’s great programs and staff.
