VOLUME 9. September 28 to October 4th 2020
There were 55 contracts closed last week at $1 million and above. 50 were single-family homes not located on lakefront property, only 2 were single-family located on lakefront, and there were 3 condos in the mix.
Nerd Alert: While this is only the 9th report, it marks the first time there were more condos than lakefront property. Also one notable piece of data is that there were 0 homes closed on that are located on Lake Austin, a first for the report as well. Even more interesting is there were also 0 contracts signed, or marked as pending, for any Lake Austin properties last week, also a first for this report.
20317 Rod and Gun Club Rd Unit #3 was hardly in the top of the rankings when it comes to price. However, the data surrounding it is interesting. It closed at the full asking price of $1,495,000 with a whopping $1,346 per square foot! While at first glance that is an impressive number, it’s lacking some context. The property is located on 9.4 acres of land located on Lake Travis in Spicewood. Obviously it is the dirt that is what is driving the price per foot up, but I find it important to mention this property as all too often someone may read the price per foot and equate that only the improvements to the land.
