A neighborhood like Garrison Park—a Far South development comprising primarily tract homes—doesn’t necessarily get a lot of attention from the New Austin hipsterati. That could be a good thing for residents, who enjoy a close, relatively inexpensive community conveniently located between West Stassney Lane and William Cannon Drive and bordered by South First Street on the east, with West Gate Boulevard running just inside its western border.
So what does it cost to buy a home in the area 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.
The current average asking price in Garrison Park is $216 per square foot, and the individual properties that make up this average range from $159 per square foot (6903 Deatonhill Drive #31, a two-bedroom condo asking $119,000) to $329 per square foot (2507 Sutherland Street, a large, new luxury condo on the market for $949,000).
To put these prices in context, the average price in Garrison Park falls between that of Montopolis ($194 per square foot) and East Riverside-Oltorf ($223 per square foot)—both on the lower end of home-sales prices right now.
