Even if you’re not looking for a new place, you can choose among apartments and duplexes in Rosedale, Windsor Park, Travis Heights, East Riverside-Oltorf, and Far South Austin this week. You know, just for fun.
We break down the cost of buying a home right now, from luxury equestrian estates in West Lake Hills to one-bedroom condos in East Riverside, by the square foot and by ranking, high to low. Now you just have to pick which one you like the most.
In an ongoing series, real-estate analytics site NeighborhoodX is taking a close look at per-square-foot asking prices in different Austin neighborhoods. Since it's Curbed's Micro Week, today's comparison features the smallest condos for sale now.
This nicely remodeled home in the East Riverside/East Oltorf area was built in 1957 and is located on more than a quarter of an acre of xeriscaped land. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a sweet-looking kitchen, and some big trees out back.
For this week's Curbed Comparison, we looked for places that rent for the current median one-bedroom amount. We found (no surprise) only apartments for that price, but there's a pretty good variety, and they're all over town.
This week's rental comparison took us around the city and even to Round Rock. We turned up some nice places for the relatively reasonable price we were looking for, including a single family home and a studio apartment we're calling a "micro-condo."
