Austin Predicted to Be Hottest Housing Market in 2021

February 6, 2021 9:59 pm

Buyers are flocking to homes in Bastrop TX as the Austin housing market continues to grow. Austin led the U.S. in housing market growth in 2020 and is expected to continue that trend in 2021.

In December 2020, the median list price for homes in the area had increased 23.6% over the previous year. That increase put it at the top of the 50 largest housing markets in the country.

Austin attracts new residents in part because of its sunny climate, relative affordability, good job prospects and abundance of cultural and outdoor activities.

Low mortgage interest rates are spurring buyers to purchase their first homes or to move up to larger or newer homes. Move-up buyers especially are seeking spacious homes in planned communities with outdoor recreational space and amenities.

You can find a great amenity-filled community just minutes from Austin at The Colony, our new community in Bastrop TX.

The Colony offers large 6/10 acre lots and 14 floor plans to choose from. Starting in the low $310’s, these homes are 1,772-2,829 square feet and have 3-4 bedrooms and 2-3.5 baths.

The Pecos floor plan is 2,191 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Four elevations are available.

An open-concept kitchen is at the center of this family-friendly single-level home. You’ll love the owner’s retreat with elegant bath and large walk-in closet. Secondary bedrooms are located off a private hallway near a full bath and laundry room.

Lots of options are available to customize this home. You might prefer a Euro shower in the owner’s bath, a bay window in the owner’s retreat or an extended covered patio with fireplace, among other selections.

Outdoor amenities at The Colony include a swimming pool with lap lanes, children’s play area with climbing structures and swings, tennis courts and a picnic area with barbecue grills.

The community is next to McKinney Roughs Park, a 1,140 acre nature preserve with hiking trails, horseback riding, zip lines and more. Two excellent golf courses, Wolfdancer and ColoVista Country Club, are just minutes away.
