What does it cost to buy a home in Central East Austin right now?
In an ongoing series with Curbed Austin, real-estate analytics site NeighborhoodX takes a close look at the range of sales asking prices in the area, ranked by cost per square foot, to find out.
As the city defines it for planning purposes, Central East Austin comprises several smaller neighborhoods; it's bounded by I-35 on the west, Chicon Street/Northwestern Avenue on the east, East Seventh Street on the south, and the East Martin Luther King Boulevard on the the north.
The properties also reflect the different housing stock of a neighborhood undergoing significant transition—a mix of cottages and a larger, century-old homes, along with new townhouse and condo development.
The current average asking price in the neighborhood is $381 per square foot, although the individual properties that make up this average range from $142 per square foot (1608 Pennsylvania Avenue, a large, single-family home building in 1949) to $521 per square foot (800 Embassy Drive #206, a condo in the future Tyndall at Robertson Hill luxury development, just west of the French Legation).
