Wondering what the median home price will get you in Austin? Here are 5 homes on the market

This retro home comes in right around the median price at $479,900. (Austin Board of Realtors)

It's finally fall, meaning cooler weather and a better time to buy a home. As of August insights, total home sales are down by 4%, according to the Austin Board of Realtors, and inventory is up.

Austin's current median home price is $470,000, so here's a sampling of what that amount can get you. Of course, if you're seriously considering a home, you'll probably be up against other buyers that could hike that market price up.
