There just isn’t much sweet inventory available in SW Austin right now. Oh sure there are a good handful of fair to mid homes waiting for someone to fix-up or completely refurbish, but not many functional floor plans that are turn key. So this could complicate issues for a growing group of buyers that want to move into this area of upper middle class families and good schools. Ordinarily you would recommend patience, but in this instance patience might be your worst enemy. It could mean that if you want to live in this location you need to be pro-active, move quickly and deliberately without a drawn out negotiation. Over course not every situation requires this action, but it is a tricky set of circumstances to manuever.
A growing infrastructure that includes cool new eateries (including a relatively new Chuys) , the newest Alamo Draft House movie theatre, new Austin Diagnostic clinics, countless shops, grocery stores and so on make this a real growing Austin destination. In the past couple years we’ve seen the addition of Southpark Meadows (6 screen Cinemark, 30+ restaraunts including Thai Passion, etc), Parkside Village (Alamo Drafthouse, Austin Diagnostic clinics, etc), Escarpment Village (HEB, Waterloo Icehouse, etc), and Shady Hollow Village (Randalls, Maudies, Brick Oven, etc). Thats quite a line up and doesn’t account for one of my favorites Evangeline Cafe ( don’t miss their Gold Band Creole), along with many other local SW Austin business’.
Ok enough about the destination. What about new homes in this area? Standard Pacific’s Avana has at least 40 homes in various stages of construction plus another 12+ that have foundations at least formed. The price starts in the upper 280’s, but most are going to be in or over the mid$300’s. Call me for details at 512-217-6197.
Upside: South Austin ROCKS! If you want to live in Texas pick Austin….if you must live in Austin..choose authentic south Austin!
