Stores catering to Downtown Austin neighborhoods are also growing in number, like the Trader Joe’s slated to open in the next year, and that’s a clear sign of increased domestic life in the area.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 30, 2012
Austin isn’t just growing out as the population increases, it’s quickly growing up, reports Regent Property Group. Luxury high rises in Downtown Austin have seen a quick jump in volume as the area, a major hub of the city for both work and play, has become a desirable home to new and resident Austinites wanting to live in the center of it all.
Regent Property Group founder Brian Talley reported that the sale of downtown condominiums has expanded rapidly in recent months, echoing a report by the Austin American Statesman that condo sales rose in March, nearly doubling numbers from the month before and almost tripling since January. “Downtown has always been popular, but now it’s being reinvigorated with eclectic housing options, like the new high rises and the new community planned at the old Seaholm Power Plant,” Talley said. “Stores catering to neighborhoods are also growing in number, like the Trader Joe’s slated to open in Austin in the next year, and that’s a clear sign of increased domestic life in the area.”
Downtown Austin condominiums cater to those seeking a unique Austin luxury home that is convenient to both the office and the after-work adult playgrounds of Sixth Street and other popular districts, as well as those looking for a second home to stay in for fun weekends or late working weeknights.
Condos downtown can come with a hefty price tag per square foot, but are inexpensive compared to real estate in California, where many new transplants have moved to Austin from, as technology jobs have continued to grow in town. A report from Capitol Market Research shows that the Four Seasons Residences, the Austonian, the W Residences and the Spring condominiums sold 17 condos in March, nine in February and six in January. The report stated that the average sale price of the 32 condo sales made in the first quarter is $952,800, totaling a value of $30.5 million.
