Dear Truie,
I just wanted to check back on your question. At the moment there are 9 properties for sale with at least 3000SF, and built after 1990, sadly none are within your $700K limit. Typically homes in Westlake and Westlake Hills average $432PSF, and they typically sell in 97 days or less. These homes have an average of 5500SF and list for approximately 2.5 Million.

To remain under the $700K limit, you will need to look at condos or townhomes.At the moment there are only two condos for sale and they don't meet your 3000SF+ or newer than 1990 requirements. The condos average 1100SF and were built in 1970 and 1980. They have an average list price of $161K.

This area is highly sought after and well priced homes sell in hours or a few days. i wish you the best!

I know you have indicated Westlake and esp Westlake Hills, and I have to ask the basis. Everyone has certain parameters that they are trying to meet that may fit other areas for consideration. Once the parameters are know they find other areas that are comparable and in some cases a beter value.

I would be glad to assist.

Currently there are no listings that are Active in the technical area of Westlake Hills that fit your criteria. However, there are many ways of accessing properties other than looking for Actives. Many people that have since pulled their homes from the market, are still very much willing to sell their homes, and I have a handful of these sellers accessible to me. I also have two agents in my office that specialize in Westlake Hills and the surrounding areas. One of them has a listing coming up in 30 days that meets your criteria.

And then if you do a search with Eanes ISD as the search criteria, there are 23 Active Listings. I also highly recommend searching for as high as 800K, because depending on seller motivations and the days on market, and an excellent Agent as your negotiator, we could get much closer to your price.

Best luck with your search!

Truie, I just ran some current searches and found quite a few homes in West Lake Hills and the surrounding areas with about 3000 sq. ft. for approximately $700K+/-. As far as being "newer", that depends on how you define "newer". Only 1 in West Lake Hills, for example, is what I would consider "newer"(blt. in 1991). I also may have a new listing coming on the market soon that may fit your criteria. If you're not yet working with a Realtor, please click on my name to the right to review my credentials and feel free to contact me to start the process. I can not only help you find and negotiate the best price on a new home, I have a team of excellent lenders, inspectors, etc. ready to help you!! I can also give you direct acces to the MLS so you can stay updated DAILY on any new homes that match your criteria so you can get the jump on the competition.

Hi Truie,
I read thru all the answers to your question. I live and work in Westlake and am a little surprised that no one mentioned Senna Hills. If you are not familar with this subdivision, it is at the West end of Bee Caves rd a couple of miles from Hwy 71. It is the last neighborhood in the Eanes District before the boundary changes to Lake Travis i.s.d. Let me know if you need more information.

In general what I read from your brief post is that this would be a tough find. My comment is based on experience in the area.

While searching on the Internet and posting in forums like this is a good place to start it will never get you the answers you deserve and need when making such an important decission.

I believe that I know of builder in the the Westlake ISD area that can build a house on one of his invemtory lots and be very near this price.

If you are not currently represented, I encourage you to interview a few agents to find the one that your feel fits your needs the best. I would be happy to meet you for an interview.

Hi Truie,,

Not specifically in westlake hills.. if you want Eanes ISD you would need to be a little further west on 2244 in senna hills (New resale) or some newer homes in cuernavaca..

I would be glad to send you inventory in those areas. There are some great homes older/renovated in the westlake area closer to MOPAC and further east on 2244. Again I could send you a few listings and if anything looks interesting set up appointments.

I Look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if you need additional informatio.
