Last year’s real estate market had no shortage of jaw-dropping headlines: “2015 sets an all-time high for Austin-area home sales volume and prices!” “The median price for single-family homes increased nearly $30,000!” “The average price for a single-family home is now $333,558!”
In fact, prices in the ATX market have gotten so high and the volume of properties so low, the Austin Board of Realtors (ABOR) says the majority of home sales activity is now taking placeoutside of Austin city limits. That’s not to say sales aren’t still flourishing. As of April, home sales are up 3.6 percent year-to-date—but that’s quite a bit less than the double-digit increases ABOR had been seeing since the market started booming in 2013.
To help make sense of it all, we turned to the data, provided by ABOR. Using numbers for inventory sold and percentage change in days on market and median price as background material, we put together our own list of 10 hot ZIP codes in Austin. The interesting thing is that North, South, East, West and Central Austin are all represented. As Mary Anne McMahon, broker owner of RE/MAX Posh Properties, puts it: “There is not a market in Austin that isn’t considered sought after. At one point, we could direct clients to a particular area to get ‘a good deal;’ now we are seeing growth everywhere.”

"Condo Buyer - March 2018
I first met Violet at an open house in my neighborhood. I found her to be friendly, knowledgeable and easy to talk with. When we began looking for a property to purchase I thought immediately of Violet. She made the entire process painless. She was available, returned phone calls and texts promptly and kept us informed at every turn. We would definitely use her again and can highly recommend her for any real estate needs.
