Last week, I wrote this post about the affordability of Austin real estate:

Austin Real Estate - What can I buy for $200,000 in the Austin area?  

This week, I am "upping the ante", and I will focus on what you can purchase for $300k right now in this market.  Some of these are a bit less:

cedar park real estate

 

This home is located in fast-growing Cedar Park (recently named #11 in the country for fastest-growing suburbs).  It features 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and 2736 s.f. per the local tax records.  It was built by Capital Pacific Homes, and it is only $283,900.

 

 anderson mill west real estate

 

This beautiful house is in Anderson Mill West, which is also in the Cedar Park area, near Lakeline MallIt has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, just over 3230 s.f. per the tax records, plantation shutters, Silestone counters, rear entry 2-car garage, and more.  It is listed at $299,000.

 

 

blackhawk real estate

 

This one is located in the Meadows of Blackhawk, which is actually my personal neighborhood in the Pflugerville area, just north of Austin.  In fact, this is very similar to my home.  This is located about 20 minutes from downtown Austin.  It has a 3-car garage, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 3490 s.f., built by Ryland Homes in 2001.  The listing price is only $296,595. 

 

 pflugerville real estate

 

The final featured listing is also in Pflugerville, and is has an astounding 3813 s.f., built by Plantation Homes in 2004.  It has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, an inground pool, koi pond, surround sound, huge backyard for entertaining, stainless appliances, all for only $295,900!

Candace - If you move to Austin, you already have a real estate company that is willing to hire you in a heartbeat.  Thanks for commenting!  It was really great talking to you earlier.  I need to get one of those cameras soon!

Jason, it's always interesting to see what homes in other parts of the country sell for and how far your money can go.  These beautiful homes if they were within the Capital Beltway where I live an work would be selling in the $750K-$900K range.

BRIAN - Thanks for stopping by to check these out.  I know that our prices are far lower than many markets around the country, which is why things never slowed down as much for us as they did elsewhere.

JENNIFER - The average lot size for a home like this is probably 1/4 to 1/3 acre (maybe 70' x 140' on the low side).

BILL - Thank for your comments.  Yes, these homes are very nice.  The cost of living here is much lower than elsewhere, so I also feel very fortunate.  I bought a gorgeous home about five years ago for only $220,000.  I have friends who work at Dell that support their families on $55 - 60k /annually, which is kind of amazing to me, but it can be done.

Hi MARIBETH - You are in my hometown!  I was born and raised in Dallas, and my mom still works there in downtown Dallas and lives near Desoto.  Thanks for commenting - I am glad you liked this post.  I have been writing a LOT since I started here in early August.
