Glencoe at Harris Ranch by Ashton Woods Homes

Life in Austin is so attractive that home prices are going up and inventory is low. One way to find a house with little competition is by checking out Austin new home developments. There are some pretty amazing single-family detached homes available that start under $300,000.

Understand that with new homes, list prices are for the base level and don’t reflect the upgrades you may see in the model. Always ask what’s included and find out if landscaping is extra. You should also bring your own agent, who will represent your interests through the entire construction process to closing. It’s essential to have an agent before you give any personal info or put your name on an interest list.

Generally speaking, the farther away from city center, the better the home prices per square foot (SQ FT). If you’re willing to look outside an Austin new home community, you’ll find homes under $300K in Pflugerville, Buda, Manor and Del Valle.
