NORTHWEST AUSTIN HOMES: Hunters Chase and Milwood Subdivisions- What can you get for the money?

Northwest Austin Real Estate: When people are looking to purchase a home in Northwest Austin, there is definitely a selection of homes in a range of prices. If you are looking in 78759 around Balcones Woods, prices can range from about $230,000 to well over $350,000 whereas if you travel north on Highway 183 about 2 miles to the subdivisions of Hunters Chase and Milwood in 78729 comparable homes sell anywhere from $170,000 to $270,000.

Hunters Chase and Milwood are similar in location and home values. The area generally referred to as Milwood or Hunters Chase has boundaries of Anderson Mill to the North, Parmer to the East, Highway 183 (Research) to the West and McNeil Dr. to the South. Older sections of Milwood extend south of McNeil and West of Parmer. Hunters Chase is part of a POA (Property Owners Association) and Milwood is not part of a POA or HOA. Otherwise, to most people they are generally seen as the same in terms of value, house types, schools, age, and amenities.
I live in Hunters Chase and work with numerous buyers and sellers in the area. Both subdivisions have area pools, parks, playgrounds, soccer fields, tennis courts and there are various hike and bike trails. The amenities for Hunters Chase are paid through POA quarterly installments. Rattan Creek park has great amenities including a larger pool that homeowners can purchase memberships for use.
Another big draw for buyers of Northwest Austin Homes is the central location for those working in Round Rock, Cedar Park, North Austin, and even Central and Downtown Austin. It is very close to area mega corporations such as; Freescale, IBM, Apple, and Dell.
Hunters Chase and Milwood are great areas for families because the schools are a part of Round Rock ISD (RRISD) and the schools have an exemplary rating. Most of the homes in this area were built around 15-25 years ago. Many of the homes have been updated to some degree. You get a great value for what you pay. For around $240,000 you can find a large 1 or 2 story about 2300-2700 sq. ft. that has been recently updated. If you don't mind doing a little updating yourself, you could find a similar home that might need minor updating around 200,000 to 235,000. Currently, I have a listing in on a quiet street in Milwood Austin. Check out http://www.milwood.info/ for more details.
