Looking at homes for sale in Austin
11404 Jim Thorpe Lane is a single-story home, with three bedrooms, two baths plus an office. I was actually writing an offer on another home for this particular client when this beauty hit the MLS and we stopped everything to go see it. Lightning struck in more ways than one as the heavens opened and rained upon us. Fortunately, that may have kept other lookers at home. We were in multiple offers, but far less than typical and we were very pleased to hear our offer was accepted the next day.
Buy a home in Austin
It’s been a rainy month here in Austin and not everyone is going to venture out to see homes. As long as it is safe, buyers should go. The same holds true for beautiful days, while others are enjoying a day at the lake, serious buyers should go see properties. Anything that is going to lessen the foot traffic for a buyer in the market is an advantage. It increases the buyer’s odds of getting a home when less competition is out there.
