The South Lamar neighborhood, a.k.a. “SoLa”, is in close proximity to just about everything in Austin. It is located in the cool 78704 zip code. Besides all the great restaurants, clubs, and bars on South Lamar Boulevard, you are also 10 minutes from the entertainment districts of downtown and 5 minutes from Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, and the hike and bike trails of the Greenbelt. The South Lamar neighborhood was once a sleepy area with mostly used car lots and auto shops, but has since become one of the trendiest and most desirable neighborhoods in south Austin.
There are a good mix of multifamily and single family homes. It is a dense neighborhood, so apartment, condos, and townhouses form the majority of the properties. A lot of young professionals live in this area as well as young families who enjoy urban living.
The prices for properties in the area range from $225k for a condo to over $2.5 million for a brand new single family home, with the median value around $375k. For information on all the current listings in the area, go to this link and search in the 78704 zip code.
