Austin Almost Doubles Luxury Homes Sold this Year

published on February 21, 2013

Austin’s luxury homes market – homes sold for over $1 million – is starting to show marked contrast to the luxury market of 2012. 2013 has almost doubled the number of luxury homes sold, with 12 homes selling from January 1 to February 14 in 2012 and 22 homes selling by 2/14 in 2013. The median sold price of homes sold to that date this year was $1,324,950, with a median sold price per square foot of $309.30.

Popular luxury home areas in Austin include Westlake and the homes along Lake Austin, homes where students attend schools in the Eanes Independent School District, and centrally located homes and high-rise condominiums. Some of Austin’s luxury homes even classify as mansions.
