If you take a snapshot of the market a year ago, there were 15 off-water homes that sold in Whiskey Creek from April 1, 2016 through June 30, 2016.  The median price per square foot at the time was $147, with a median sales price of $275,000.  The table above strongly indicates that Whiskey Creek is continuing an upward trejectory for home price gains.  The year over year difference has had a market performance of a 15% weighted gain in home values.  This likely has a lot to do with the comparison of sales just across the street on the "riverside" of McGregor Blvd, where off-water homes are selling at over $225 PSF which is a stones throw away from Whiskey Creek's entrance.
