Just as Austin continues to grown ever outward, we thought it was time to start exploring home-buying costs in the outer bounds of out burgeoning area. Our data-crunching buddies at real-estate analytics site NeighborhoodX have, handily, provided some intel and an interactive chart doing just that in the area in and around the Comanche Trail neighborhood near Lake Travis.
Located on one of those extruding land masses (they’re a little too wide to be called peninsulas, we think) on the main basin of Lake Travis, not far from Hippie Hollow and The Oasis restaurant/sunset-watching spot, Comanche Trail is an unincorporated community neighborhood bounded by Windy Point on the east and land dedicated to the Balcones Canyonland preserve on the north.
Excluding certain listings, the average asking price in the neighborhood is $398 per square foot, while the individual properties that make up this average range from $183 per square foot (7011 Mountain Trail, a house that backs to the Balcones Greenbeld, asking $490,000) to $692 per square foot (14423 Ridgetop Terrace, a $5 million lakefront estate).
NeighborhoodX’s analysis excluded 7100 Comanche Trail, the most expensive listing in the neighborhood because of an inconsistency in the square footage of the structures on the site (according to the text, there is a a 10,000-square-foot structure with some living space as well as a 1,200-square-foot house; according to the entered data, there is 4,900 square feet of total living space).
