As a 13-year resident of Pflugerville, Texas (located immediately adjacent to north Austin), I have seen a lot of growth occur here over the years. I remember doing a real estate marketing piece in 1997, which was my first year in the business. That year, they had recently replaced the population sign for our town, which used to read 4,444. I believe this was for the 1990 census figures. As I recall, the population then was around 11,000, so I was happy to point to our growth as a sign of things to come.
In 2000, the population was around 16,500, and it has since increased by more than 100% since then, to over 35,400 this past year.
Projected growth shows Pflugerville doubling again over the next decade, and tripling in size by 2025.
Many people are not aware that the popular television show "Friday Night Lights" is filmed right here in town. Fictional Dillon, Texas is actually Pflugerville. In fact, they even use the same mascot name, the Panthers. The real life Panthers recently competed in the Texas State High School Championship game.
With the advent of two new toll roads that converge about 1.5 miles from my home, we are now able to get just about anywhere of interest for shopping within 10-15 minutes, and my commute time to my office in west Austin was cut from 40 to about 26 minutes.
Located at the intersection of the aforementioned toll roads (45 and 130), Stone Hill Town Center is slated to open within a few months, and it promises over 1,000,000 square feet of shopping and entertainment. Home Depot, Best Buy, Chili's, several retail clothing stores, a large theater, and a fitness center are among the anticipated tenants.
I am happy that we bought our home here five years ago, as prices are on the rise and the outlook is bright for Pflugerville real estate.
If you are interested in looking for a home in the Pflugerville area, please feel free to call or email me anytime. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
