Downtown Austin Real Estate

Downtown Austin homes for sale are primarily condos and townhomes. However, located on the western edge of the downtown core there are single-family homes and duplexes for sale and rent. These gems do not come on the market that often, and when they do developers are there to snatch them up and redevelop the land. If you see a single-family home on the market then be sure to get the check book out fast!

Downtown Austin Homes for Sales

Situated along North Lamar Boulevard just east of Baylor Street, is where many of these single-family homes are located. This small section of the downtown core has remained, for now, untouched by developers. But, as the Downtown Austin real estate market continues to get hotter it won’t be long before residents demand more and more housing options. Currently, you’ll find duplexes for rent in this area as well as multi-family complexes. The benefit to this type of housing is the outdoor space for your kids to play safely. The interior of many of these older homes have not been changed over the years, but this is the tradeoff for a house within walking distance to downtown!

Musicians tend to flock to 6th Street, known as "The Live Music Capitol of the World", thanks to its wealth of venues and entertainers found at every turn.

However, music isn't the only cultural standout in the city! Residents of Downtown Austin are welcome to visit the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, while a unique twist on dinner and a movie is available at downtown's Alamo Drafthouse cinema theater.

Although Austin is the biggest metropolis in the country without a major professional sports team, fans will nonetheless love living in Downtown Austin real estate properties, thanks to the community's convenient location near the University of Texas. This prime placement gives football fanatics a chance to watch the UofT Longhorns, former NCAA Division champs, almost without having to leave their backyard!

Stroll down scenic 6th Street or through the Seaholm District, and you'll find a selection of beautiful independent bakeries and delis, offering some of the best eats in the city. You won't even have to look hard to find international options, with Ochi offering traditional Japanese fair, while Fonda San Miguel serves up some of the most authentic Mexican food this side of the border.
