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.) How far did the pendulum swing this week, and what did it hit?
We overlooked the top-selling home in our daily listings, which is unusual—especially when it’s a "secret oasis" in historic Pemberton Heights built in 1941. Nevertheless, it managed to sell for a whopping amount, one fairly close to its asking price.
↑ The 3,043-square-foot home was listed last October for $1,750,000; the price dropped to $1,699,000 in March, and it sold on August 3 for $1,600,000.
Described as "nasty" and "not habitable" in its own sales listing, the lowest-priced sale this week nevertheless garnered more than its asking price.
↑ A 647-square-foot, one-bedroom condo, this place went on the market for a cash-only price of $79,700 in July. Despite all caveats, the admittedly very central condo sold for $97,000 August 2.
