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.) Let’s see what buyers and sellers bought and paid for this week!
For the first time in ... maybe forever, at least in Curbed Austin’s history, a Downtown condo tops the list of home sales prices in the city for the week. (Given all the decrying of expensive condos in the area, this may or may not be significant.)
A south-facing, 2,426-square-foot unit in the Austonian, the home has luxury amenities (naturally) and panoramic views that include Town Lake and the Hill Country. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo has wood flooring throughout the living spaces, marble counter tops, and all the expected high-end fixtures and finishes. It all comes with three parking spaces and one storage unit.
↑ The Austonian, 200 Congress Avenue, No. 47RR. Community amenities at the Austonian include a barbecue pit/grill, a dog park, a fitness center, a game room, Google Fiber, security, and a pool.
This unit was listed for $3,100,000 on Aug. 17 and sold for $2,875,000 on Jan. 15. HOA dues for the unit are $2,195/month.
↑ 6401 Chimney Creek Circle Unit A. A condo—albeit a very different one—was also the least expensive property sold last week. The townhouse-style, two-story unit in University Hills was marketed as-is, and the photos are of similar quality. It has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, as well as in-unit laundry facilities. Given the convenient location, offered owner financing, and the presence of a tenant who pays $1,250/month (according to the listing), it looks like a fine fixer-upper for the buyer.
Placed on the market Nov. 13 for $115,000 and relisted Dec. 17 for $109,000, the unit sold on Jan. 3 for $95,000. HOA dues are $181/month.
