Just got a call from another agent who has a newish construction contemporary home coming on the market soon in Eanes ISD in west Austin.  Home is on a cul-de-sac, has over 6000 square feet, spa, pool, “top of the line everything”, on about an acre lot.  I’m supposed to go check it out tomorrow…if it’s hot I’ll email it out to my preferred buyers first, then update it on our Austin modern homes list…or call me if you want to discuss it.

2 New Eanes Modern Spec Homes

Posted by Tom Bates

 

Checked up on those two new construction industrial Austin modern homes under construction right now in the Eanes ISD.  The builder is asking $850,000 for each.  They each have 3500 sf of conditioned space and great canyon views.  Builder told me they will be very industrial, sleek and modern.  So far the construction is steel beams and concrete…no wood frame that I can see.  I’m hoping that these two Austin modern homes will be executed well.  I think we’ve all been dissapointed lately with Austin modern spec homes the last couple of years.  I’m supposed to get the floorplans today and I’ll update this post when I learn more.

Why are some Austin Schools Better than Others?

Posted by Tom Bates

 

Here is a good article written up in the Austin Statesman discussing some of the reasons why some Austin schools and Austin school districts test better than others.  Not much surprise that it has a lot to do with where the money is and who has more of it.  Read the full article at the Statesman here.

From a real estate market perspective, my school-conscious clients tend to focus their school search in one of a few basic areas:

Austin Area School Districts:
#1 – Eanes ISD is most popular with my clients BY FAR. View homes for sale in Eanes ISD
#2 – Lake Travis ISD is the 2nd most popular district for my clients. View homes for sale in Lake Travis ISD
#3 – Leander ISD is third most popular school district for my clients. View homes for sale in Leander ISD

Popular Austin ISD Schools:
#1 – Casis Elementary
#2 – Kizer Elementary
#3 – Caraway Elementary

We have the updated list of all schools and how they recently tested if you want a copy of it.  Just let one of us know.

Posted by Tom Bates

 

The volume of home sale in Eanes ISD in west Austin has increased this year 19% vs the same year-to-date period last year.   How is the Eanes ISD real estate luxury market doing in comparison? Even better.  YTD there has been a 28% increase in Eanes ISD home sales listed over $1,000,000.  The price paid per square foot for luxury Eanes ISD homes YTD10 vs same period YTD09 also increased 4%.   Does this mean that the Austin real estate market has bounced off the bottom?  Possibly so.  If you are looking for a historically good deal, I wouldn’t wait too much longer!
