It is important to point out that a number of homes sell on Lake Austin without being listed on the MLS (these are called pocket or private listings), which is the source of this information. While the median sold price does indicate high value properties, it does not reflect the fact that homes do sell in the $1,200-$1,500+ per square foot range for the most desirable properties on the lake. As a result, when searching for Lake Austin properties, it is helpful to work with a REALTORĀ® connected into the community of private listings and sales.
