In an ongoing series for Curbed Austin, real-estate analytics site NeighborhoodX is taking a close look at sales price ranges in different neighborhoods.
This week, NeighborhoodX is looking at the prices in South Austin's Bouldin Creek neighborhood, as it has several times, most recently in June.
The Bouldin Creek neighborhood stretches from the river to its north to West Oltorf Street on the south between South Congress Avenue and West Bouldin Creek. Like most central South Austin neighborhoods, it was for decades an affordable area to rent or buy and was home to a mix of working-class residents, musicians, and other creative types. Many who bought homes in the close-knit neighborhood then still live there, now joined by residents who can afford the higher prices commanded in the area, with its prime location and considerable charm.
The current average listing price in the neighborhood is $418 per square foot, but the individual properties that make up that average range from $227/square foot (2308 Forest Avenue, a 3,809-square-foot home asking $865,000) to $800/square foot (1702 Briar Street, a two-bedroom, one-bathroom house with backyard studio going for $629,900).
As always, you can see the full, interactive chart on NeighborhoodX's website, at the link below.
