When I called the Homebuilders Association of Greater Austin, their information line sent me into a perpetual “press one for more information” loop. And their website was down briefly a few days ago when I was checking information.
Okay, so the 2009 Parade of Homes isn’t cancelled– it starts on Saturday 23rd May at 10am.
In the event of unclement weather, call (512) 454-5588 to find out if the homes are open. (There are a few thunderstorms in the forecast for this weekend here at Mueller, Austin)
Four of the five parade homes are listed for sale in the Austin Multiple Listing System, and the fifth is the Streetman home with the elevator and multiple elevated decks which is listed at $1.4m.
Interestingly, the model home for the affordable row homes on Zach Scott is out of use currently. Part of that could be due to the lack of affordable homes at the Mueller Redevelopment currently.
Not all market rate homes at Mueller cost a million dollars. The MuellerAustin.com homefinder is not perhaps the most up to date source of homes. There are additional floorplans not listed and the price ranges aren’t accurate.
There are floorplans starting at around $255,000 (David Weekley town homes), and yard homes homes in the $300,000s – $800,000s.
If you do want seamless corner windows, 4 bedrooms a free-floating staircase and retractable walls, you could always buy the Muskin company’s parade home designed by Michael Hsu. Or you could get a ticket for $15 and just take a tour through the parade homes.
