The Austin Board of Realtors released its monthly home sales report for March 2015 today, and one of the numbers that jumped out at us is the median price for sales in the city of Austin (not the Austin area, where the number is lower): $330,000.
We decided a Curbed Comparison—one different from our usual rental-rate features—was in order. Here are some examples for what's on the Austin market at or near the median rate.
↑ A look in Far North Austin turns up a Walnut Creek three-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,782-square-foot house for $329,900. Built in 2011, the house at 513 Bowery Trail has a contemporary look as well as a backyard and deck.
↑ You could do a lot worse than this two-bedroom, one-bathroom frame house at 2004 East 16th Street in Central East Austin. The 1,040-square foot home was built in 1905 and is no doubt in need of renovations, but it still has a lot of period details and is super-central.
↑ Coming in almost right at the median price ($329,999), this Southwest Austin, ranch-style home at 5715 Lomita Verde Circle is 1,504 square feet in size and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a yard and deck.
↑ This renovated 1970 home at 3004 Lynridge Drive in University Hills is one of the most common styles in the price range (this one's $329,800). The 1,423-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom house has gotten several modern updates and has the apparently requisite back yard and deck.
↑ If downtown is your style, this $325,000 condo at 800 Brazos Street might suit you. The 723-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bathroom Brazos Place unit has concrete floors, barn doors, and a balcony.
