Houses For Sale In Westlake

Are you considering buying a home in Westlake?  If you are looking at houses for sale in Westlake, it is important to understand the Westlake housing market.  Most people refer to Westlake as all of the homes that feed to Westlake High School. In fact, there are many mini-neighborhoods that make up the greater Westlake area.

Houses in the Westlake area tend to be some of the most expensive houses for sale in the Austin area.  This is primarily due to the fact that houses for sale in Westlake allow access to one of the best school districts in Austin, EANES ISD. If you have kids and are looking for houses for sale in Westlake, it is important to know which areas feed to which middle schools.  There are two middle schools that feed to Westlake High School, Hill Country Middle School and Westridge Middle School.  Homes that are located east of Loop 360 are in the MLS area 8E and these Westlake houses feed to Hill Country.  Houses west of Loop 360 are in the MLS area 8W and these homes feed to Westridge.

This is important to know.  If you are looking at homes for sale in Westlake Hills, you will find many affordable options in the Lost Creek neighborhood.  This neighborhood is way closer to Hill Country Middle School, but houses in Lost Creek feed to Westridge Middle School.  This means if you have younger kiddos and buy a house in Lost Creek or the Woods of Westlake, they will have a much longer commute during their middle school years.  

Westlake houses for sale in the 8E area tend to be a bit pricier than those in 8W since these houses are also closer to downtown Austin. In 2016, houses for sale in the 8E area of Westlake had a median sales price of  $1,031,750. Conversely, homes for sale in 8W sold for a median price of $725,000 in 2016.  When you are considering buying a home in Westlake it is important to understand these intricacies of the Westlake area.  You also want to look at the tax rate in different neighborhoods as these can vary substantially.
