There are tons of mixed messages out there in terms of what to expect when selling a home in Austin. Yes, Austin is a hot real estate market. It’s been a hot market for years, that is not new news. What’s changed is the proportion of different buyers that make up the market.
Selling a Home in Austin
Austin has always had an influx of new residents. In recent years, the amount of inbound out-of-state new buyers has increased at an exponential speed creating a new narrative when talking about Austin’s affordability. Continue reading →
Austin real estate in March continues to tell the tale of what happens to the housing market when supply and demand drastically become out of balance. According to a recent article from the National Association of Realtors, the market nationally needs about $2.7 million homes to level out. That’s not only a lot of homes but considering there is a lumber shortage, even new home production cannot adequately make up the deficit. Continue reading →
Want to buy a house in Austin? The Austin real estate market is very fluid right now. It is data-informed and not as data-driven as I would like. A non-data-driven market is volatile when it comes to home values and hard to predict because much of it is based on how much cash someone has available and how much emotion is driving the decision.

The Austin Housing Market sat frozen with much of Central Texas last week, as the city sat with no power, no water, and no clear end in sight. If you’ve never heard my accent before, you may not be aware that I am originally from the Northeast coast. Growing up on the border of New York and New Jersey, I am used to snow.

The holiday season is all about lists. We make them, check them twice, and then because it is 2020, we throw them away and start new ones. Austin made Santa proud this year by making Wallethub’s Best Cities for Christmas list. If we have learned anything this year, it is to be more adaptable. We all think we are flexible and able to bend, but that was challenged this year (and I don’t mean with yoga). Life truly can change at any moment.

I think I was more prepared for zombies, but I feel like we leaned a little closer to the Hunger Games.Continue reading →
