We’ve heard and written a lot about the hot real estate market in Austin, Texas. Prices have been on the rise, up 5.3 percent in September compared to last year, to a median sale price of $290,000. Homes in Austin are staying on the market for a median of 35 days, but hot homes are finding buyers much faster than that.
This week, we decided to dig into the most popular homes in Austin right now. Here’s a roundup of the ten homes listed between Oct. 23 and 29 in the Austin metro area that received the most favorites by Redfin users.
What is a favorite? Homebuyers searching on the Redfin.com site or mobile app can “favorite” a home by clicking the heart on the listing. This feature lets homebuyers keep track of the homes they are interested in and easily share those homes with their spouse, partner or cobuyer.
Looking at the most favorited homes is one way to gauge which neighborhoods, home styles and price points are trending now. Plus, it’s a fun excuse for real estate obsessives like me to ogle new properties on the market.
I’m loving the beautiful trees gracing several of the front yards. My personal favorites are #6 and #7. A stunning newly built home, #6 offers warmth and thoughtful architectural details (that arched iron door!) with modern amenities. At $3.295 million, this property offers a luxurious pool and well-manicured garden.
#7 is a smartly-updated older home that offers loads of character and charm. It has a great deck and patio space for entertaining. Redfin superstar listing agent, Yvette Evans, is selling this home and the lovely property that ranks #2 on the list. Reach out to Yvette if you have any question about those homes.
The most affordable home on the list is a $210,000 property in Round Rock offering vaulted ceilings and a large deck.
