It's time again for the High & the Low, a Curbed Austin column chronicling the most and least expensive homes sold in Austin in the last seven days. (Sales information gathered from Zillow, Redfin, and Realtor.) Let’s see what buyers and sellers bought and paid for this week!
↑ A 1985 mod-contemporary in Old West Austin, a somewhat unusual style for that neighborhood, nabbed the top spot this week. Backing to Shoal Creek, the 3,940-square-foot mutilevel home still looks current, with its emphasis on rough, unfinished-looking materials and concrete exteriors. It has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, French Oak floors, and glass railings along staircases. There’s also a private pool and hot tub tucked under the house in front, a garage with a glass door and electric car charging dock, a gourmet, and screened back porch overlooking the creek.
Listed for $2.95 million in July, it sold for $2.37 million on Nov. 29.
On the other end of the sales scale are some bargain-basement marketing techniques we’ve become used to.
↑ Specifically, the listing for this Far North condo contains no description and no interior photos. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit measures 559 square feet and is located in what looks like a renovated, three-story apartment complex. It was built in 1986 and looks like it’s right next to Walnut Creek.
The price was apparently right, as it was listed in October for $74,900 and sold for more—$75,500—on Nov. 30.
