As a six-year resident of the Meadows of Blackhawk, I like to keep an eye on the market values here in our neighborhood. When the toll roads opened about a year and a half ago, the prices started trending upward and they continue to appreciate. As a fellow homeowner, this is important to me, too!
Currently, there are 27 homes available in the Meadows, with an average asking price of $220,201. The average square footage for these homes is 2,629, for an average price per square foot of $84.53.
Presently, there are 8 homes under contract in the subdivision, with an average listing price of $215,998, and an average square footage of 2,502, yielding an average price per square foot of $85.62.
Over the past quarter (April through June 2008), there were 13 sales closed within Meadows of Blackhawk. The average listing price was $220,894 and the average sales price was $214,112. This means that homes sold for approximately 97% of the list price. The average number of days on the market was 48, which is about 20 days less than the average for the Austin MLS. The square footage of the homes sold averaged 2,644, and the price per square foot for the sales was $82.00.
In other area news:
