Central Austin Neighborhoods

Close in and convenient to downtown, the Capitol, Mopac, I-35, and many parks including Zilker Park, Central Austin real estate is generally composed of houses built from the early 1900′s through the 1950′s. With the ever increasing popularity of living close to work and saving energy, many homes have been redeveloped so you can find newer homes if that’s your cup of tea.

With easy access to Austin’s vibrant downtown area and its numerous employment opportunities and attractions including the State Capitol and the University of Austin, Central Austin neighborhoods offer the best of urban living while retaining the quirky charm Austin is famous for. Central Austin real estate offerings range from upscale condominiums to new energy-efficient green communities, with older traditional homes available in the area as well.

Central Austin condominiums range from around the mid $80s to $500,000 or more, depending on size, location and type of development. Prices per square foot start at just under $200 and can run as high as $400 per square foot for smaller units in more desirable areas. The downtown area offers buyers a choice between luxurious high-rise condominiums with all the extras and a number of newer, energy-efficient low-rise condominium developments; both provide easy access to Austin’s exceptional parks and jogging trails for the health conscious.

Central Austin real estate also includes a wide range of single-family homes that put residents within easy reach of the clubs, nightlife, and independent music scene for which Austin is renowned and can even, in some cases, eliminate the need for maintaining a vehicle altogether. Especially for young professionals, Central Austin is the place to be.
