How much does it cost to buy a home in West University these days?

In an ongoing series with Curbed Austin, real-estate analytics site NeighborhoodX took a close look at the range of sales asking prices per square foot in the area to find out.

West University is a UT-adjacent neighborhood that includes the traditional West Campus area (UT to the east, North Lamar Boulevard to the west, starting at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard on the south) but extends north to West 38th Street.

The current average price in the neighborhood is $339 per square foot, but the individual properties that make up this average range from $214 per square foot (2401 Leon Street #311, a West Campus condo asking $339,000) to $497 per square foot (3403 King Street, a small, one-bedroom house to the north asking $449,900).

"The prices range almost 50% in either direction from the average," said NeighborhoodX’s Constantine Valhouli. "This indicates both how heterogenous the housing stock is, as well as the range of entry points into the neighborhood. It's a very healthy sign."
