AUSTIN’S ‘704’ NEIGHBORHOOD
206 Dunlap is located in Austin’s 78704 zip code or what is popularly referenced as “704″ has been know as the hottest zip code in Austin, Texas. The 04 includes SoCo (South Congress) which is the hippest area of town (restaurants, clubs, The San Jose Hotel, Jo’s Coffee, The Continental Club), Travis Heights (old, cool, trendy), Bouldin (that’s a creek that runs through it), South 1st St, and Barton Hills or (SoLa) South Lamar (With the Greenbelt, more restaurants, bars, and clubs) and Zilker (awesome park where ACL Music Fest, and Barton Springs pool are).
When it comes to real estate wise the ’04’ includes $1MM contemporary new construction next door to shacks under 1,200 sqft selling for $400k+. This area has experienced serious appreciation over the past 10 years with the more expensive homes sitting on the market for quite some time. With most livable homes currently selling for $350/Sqft to $450/Sqft depending on age and size. The 78704 will always hold on to it’s value, as the old real estate phrase goes “location, location, location” which translates into ongoing real estate demand. It’s a very cool place to live, with lots to do but it’s expensive. You can get a very basic (read small) condo in the area in the mid to high $400’s but you typically need to get to $500k – $700k to get substance. You definitely get location here but you’ll pay for it.
Forbes says th “The 78704 is one of the top performing housing markets”, historically is it one of Austin’s highest appreciation neighborhoods and the future looks solid as there are still plenty of tired properties that have yet to be scooped up and renovated into top $$ properties. If you’re in town, check out First Thursday, music and the general scene on South Congress, South Lamar, and go for a walk around Ladybird Lake, and The greenbelt, check out The Continental Club, stay at The San Jose if you can, coffee at Jo’s. Brunch at Kerbey Lane, Tacos at any of the 3 Torchy’s Tacos locations the “704” has. It’s a hip and groovy area, check it out.
