Independence is a south Austin community built around the concept of providing residents with a low maintenance home owning lifestyle. What does that mean? The area is maintained by an active home owners association that maintains the front and side yard of each home. The homes are condo homes, meaning the land is owned by the home owner’s association while you as the home owner own the structure itself.
