The Westlake area is home to some of the priciest residences in the Austin area. The convenient location with a close proximity to downtown coupled with the exemplary schools makes this area highly desirable for many families. Unfortunately, many home buyers may find this neighborhood to be at the top of their budget. Last year the median home sales price for residences in Eanes ISD was $860,000. However, as prospective Westlake home buyers know, there are many homes that sell for far more in this neighborhood.
Fortunately, now is a great time to buy in Eanes ISD. Historically, home prices in Westlake tend to soar in the late spring/early summer. Since this area is family oriented, most buyers prefer to move in the summer months when the kids are out of school. However, if you are willing to move in the fall/winter, you can get a much better deal on a home in Eanes ISD. Historically, the median home sales price tends to be the least in Westlake between September through January.
That means now is a great time to be looking at homes if you want to get a fantastic deal on a home in Eanes ISD. There are currently 69 homes under 1 M for sale in this great school district. There are two definitive clusters of moderately priced home in Eanes ISD; homes in Lost Creek and homes in Cuernavaca. However, there are also homes at this price point scattered throughout Westlake.
