Market Statistics in Barton Hills neighborhood of Austin Texas for May 2009.

Barton Hills area is a wonderful area of Austin, Betina has provided a glimpse of the market for May 2009.

I lived in Barton Hills for several years and loved the large lots and the short commute to downtown. Since most of it was developed in the 1950-1980's there are no Home Owners Associations fees or restrictions. As a Realtor it is one of my favorite neighborhoods to sell for the very same reasons.

Since there are new construction homes and condos taking the place of some of the original Barton Hills homes I am splitting these stats into 1950-1989 and a separate category of newer condo style homes built in the last ten years. I hope this makes the information easier to digest.

Barton Hills homes built from  1950-1989 home stats: Average single family home 3-4 bedroom, 2 bath home with a two car garage with approximately 2000 square feet.

Number of homes listed in last 30 days: 6

Average year built for homes: 1965

Average lot size: between a 1/4 and 1/3 acre

Average Days on Market: 58

Average Price Per Square Foot: $247.

 

Barton Hills condo homes built from 1990-2009

Number of homes listed in last 30 days: 5

Average year built for condo homes: 2008

Average Lot Size: .13

Average Days on Market: 122

Average Price Per Square Foot:  $297.

 

If you are in the market for a new home and are not presently working with a Realtor, call me. I would be happy to help you through the process of buying a home. I specialize in Relocation and I have a network of experts to make the process easy to navigate. I look forward to the opportunity to earn your business.
