Websense, a San Diego firm that developes software to protect businesses from cyberattacks, is considering from their HQ to Austin. They would create 470 jobs with an average pay of $82K a year – not bad wages. Also Dropbox, which is already in Austin, is thinking of expanding their Austin workforce by 170 new jobs that would have an average pay of $52K a year.

Obviously these folks think, as I do, that the Austin area is the right place to be right now. And that is why I own rental property in our area, and why you should to. It has been more steady than the stock market, and can even be included in your IRA!
