central austin homesWhile Regent Property Group agents work with clients in all price ranges, in all areas of Austin, we are one of the few brokerages in town with practical experience and expertise in Austin luxury homes – properties listed for sale over $1 million. And, we enjoy putting together this monthly report for you citing the trends within our area!

Considering the below numbers and that all properties included meet at least the $1 million threshold, Austin’s luxury market is “relatively” affordable: average prices and median prices are still demonstrating consistent closings well under the $2 million mark. What does this mean? Austin is selling plenty of homes in the $1 million to a few million dollar range. Homes above this to the double digit millions are still notable and infrequent and, therefore, offer opportunities that elite buyers can view as the most distinguished homes in Austin.
