As a resident of the Meadows of Blackhawk for almost seven years now, I like to keep an eye on the property values in the area. Ever since the toll roads opened a couple of years ago, demand has remained reasonably strong despite a rocky real estate market in 2008.
Currently, there are 24 homes available in the Meadows, with an average asking price of $214,461. The average square footage for these homes is 2,651, for an average price per square foot of $81.93.
Presently, there are 3 homes under contract in the subdivision, with an average listing price of $185,333, and an average square footage of 2,204, yielding an average price per square foot of $84.21. This is about $8/s.f. higher than 2008 prices.
Over the past six months (January 1st through June 30th), there were 21 sales closed within Meadows of Blackhawk. The average listing price was $185,633 and the average sales price was $181,715. This means that homes sold for approximately 97.9% of the list price. This number does not account for any seller-paid closing costs, nor does it include any price reductions.
The average number of days on the market for the first half of 2009 was 89, which is similar to the average for the entire Austin MLS. The square footage of the homes sold averaged 2,370, and the price per square foot for the sales was $78.38.
