Dear Sudha,
I just wanted to check in and see if you found the right place to rent. Hyde Park is a great neighborhood and close to everything. There are many homes and even a few condos and townhomes to choose from. If your still looking take a peek at this link with some homes for lease in the area:…

There are 14 homes for sale and they are priced from $269K to a beautiful multi-million dollar estate called Inshallah in the Hyde Park area. Should any of them appeal to you I would be happy to assist you.

Hello, Sudha,
I answered you yesterday, but haven't heard back from you. I know a lot of people contacted you through Trulia. Did you contact any of them back? You got lots of good advice from everybody, but in order to rent and/or buy, you will need to get together with one of us so we can help you find what you are looking for. I hope to hear from you.

If your son is currently in Austin, he should find a Realtor he would like to work with and then go from there.
Several questions are still out there as far as bedrooms, size of space needed, amount to spend on lease and then on actual property.
I would be glad to meet and interview with him to see if he would feel comfortable working with me and then we could proceed from there. If that is not possible, we could set up everything on emails and then I would become your eyes. Just all depends on what you are in need of.
I would appreciate the opportunity to assist in your son's search.
Thank You,

You have many, many options for short term rentals in central Austin. It sounds like your son needs to rent something in early August, so I presume it's related to his attending UT, or something else related to the start of the school year. Most of the longer term student housing started pre-leasing in late February/early March, but you still have good options for a short term lease.

That said, if you intend to purchase something soon thereafter, you might want to consider finding a home to purchase that is on the market now, arrange a delayed closing to allow for whatever you need to get done between now and the time you purchase the place, and offer to lease the home on a short term basis until you close on that home. This solves both problems, and establishes some permanence for your son from the start.

If you'd like a perspective on Austin from a student's perspective, I have several recent UT grads who are clients that now live in Austin and they can help guide you on things to consider for your son. I can provide you their contact info if you will let me know how best to get in touch with you.

Thanks and I wish you and your son all the best!

Hello, Sudha,

August is right around the corner, so let's start looking for a rental property for your son as soon as possible. You didn't mention a price range or any other details regarding what kind of home he needs (condo, duplex, single family residence) or number of bedrooms, etc. Is your son going to UT? Hyde Park is a great location for college students and I am very familiar with it. Are you all relocating to Austin? I would love to help you and guide you through both the rental and home buying process. Call me or email me so we can start looking as soon as possible. As far as buying a home, we also need to discuss home search criteria, loan approval, finding a lender if needed, etc. I don't just sell homes, I advise, guide and represent my clients' best interest.
