Eanes ISD 2013-2014 School District Information and Accountability

Here is a link to Gracy Title’s Eanes ISD summary for Eanes ISD 2013-2014 School District Information & Eanes Accountability Ratings

And here is a link to Eanes ISD 2014-2015 School Year Calendar

Eanes ISD of course is still the top overall school district in the Austin area.  I am looking forward to The Chaps winning some Friday night football this year…Go Chaps!  Here is a link to the Westlake Chaps football website where you can see the football schedule and buy tickets.

Regarding Eanes ISD real estate, inventory is still at an all time low for Eanes, Westlake and Rollingwood with inventory well under 1 month supply in many (most) Eanes neighborhoods.  I have been pretty active in Westlake real estate this year with deals and we are still seeing the good homes get well over bid.  The not so good homes (the wonky ones that come in over mid comp ranges, ie overpriced) are still not moving, so even though the Eanes ISD real estate market is iron red hot, you still have to price right to sell.  For instance, I am noticing that a lot of the Westlake homes that really should be priced at lot value are trying to get lot value plus home value, but the market just isn’t quite that crazy yet and I don’t think it will get to that (silicon valley) level.

There is definitely a pattern in Eanes real estate, the sellers who are pricing their homes in a comp supportive PPSF and not getting too greedy tend to get multiple offers that will push up their contract prices to a nice level, and the greedy Eanes sellers who are clearly trying to take advantage of the low inventory and pricing sky high are often left wondering where all the buyers are and having to drop prices after the first couple of weeks.  But that’s just what I have noticed.  Oh, and there are some cool modern homes out there for sale, not on MLS, so give me a call and we can discuss.  Tom 512-413-0870

We have a buyer who needs an already built or already under construction modern home in Eanes ISD with at least 4000 sf.  House must be modern. Cash buyer.  Nothing that is currently on the MLS fits this buyer’s particular needs. Let me know if you have a modern home in Eanes ISD that we can look at and make an offer on.  Thanks.  (Builders, if you have a lot with already spec’d and bid out plans we might consider that.)

2002 Rue St. Tropez – Hot Austin Modern Home – Why has no one bought this awesome home yet?

Posted by Tom Bates

 

The fact that no one has bought 2002 Rue de St. Tropez, Austin TX sort of bothers me. And it’s not even one of my listings! It bothers me because it is such a hot modern Austin home. I mean it is smoking hot. It was on the cover Dwell Magazine a few years back…like on the COVER.

Erik, the design-builder, built an amazing home in the Eanes ISD area of Westlake. It has wide open entertaining areas, Scandinavian inspired color palette, tons of custom steel, custom industrial glass and a ton of modern zing.  This home is steel construction too, not timber, no pine 2×4’s…steel and metal bones.  It’s close in, private, gated, in the best school district in central Texas (Eanes ISD), has a Lake Austin waterfront park, pool and boat dock, has a roof top with views, and on and on.

Erik nailed this Austin modern home…it’s currently offered for just $253/sf…in any other modern architecture loving city, this modern home would have been snapped up…so what’s up Austin modern home lovers?! Is it too modern for Austin? Please restore my faith in Austin as a hip, up-and-coming modern architectural trend-setter!!! 🙂 Here is a link to 2002 Rue de St. Tropez listing (again, not listed by us.)

Eanes ISD News: West Ridge Middle School No Longer Exemplary

Posted by Tom Bates

 

Eanes ISD in Austin has always been The Texas School District that had every single school as exemplary schools.  Want the best ranked schools? Easy, just live in Eanes ISD.  Well, that just changed a little bit this week.  The new 2011 Texas Education Agency (TEA) school rankings are out and Eanes ISD is missing one of its trophies.  West Ridge Middle School is now ranked a second best “Recognized” down a notch from “Exemplary”.  

But don’t get too worked up, West Ridge Middle School is a superb middle school still, it just lost some points in testing this year.  My guess is that they will be back to Exemplary very soon!

Austin neighborhoods that attend West Ridge are mostly west of 360 Capital of Texas Highway.  You can see all the Austin school rankings and Eanes school rankings for TEA 2011 test results here.

Here is a link if you are interested in Eanes ISD real estate for sale or lease.  There is also an Eanes ISD map of school locations here.
