I keep finding places I like, but then I scroll down to see that they only accept small dogs. It's really frustrating, and a total waste of my time.

Hi, I'm a Real Estate Broker in Texas and have been for 10 years. I'm moving to California in June 2014. I have no idea how to go about the process. From what I've heard you have to start all over again. Have you learned anything useful? If so I would appreciate any help you could give.

Are trying to sell the home yourself or are you a realtor? You can only list a home at Trulia if you are an agent. I know of a real good realtor in Austin; if you'd like her contact let me know.

Take care,

I'm not sure this is the end all be all list .... but here is a recently published article that might give you a start...

This one from Money is a little older:

Of course I like Texas....that's where I live so I'm probably biased...but rents are good, prices still low, lots of demand for rentals, and lots of people moving here. It is creating pressure and not enough money for apartments to be built to handle the demand.

Check out this article on why to invest in Texas:

I must agree with Perry. Those looking for a 2-1 under $1100 will have to go well south of the river or north of HWY 183. 2-1's in central Austin will be well above $900-1100. For example I just helped someone with a lease that was $1100 close to South Lamar & Barton Skyway. I thought that was a miracle as its been a few years since I saw a 2-1+ in 78704 under $1400. I hope things work out for you!

Yes you can still get 80/10/0. If you want a Realtor who is also a lender, contact me. I do both. Second lien rates are around 7% APR depending on a number of factors.

Dear Nini,
Your best bet is to speak with a lender to see exactly what you will qualify for now. It is heartbreaking to go look at homes in one price range only to discover its more than you can afford Or discovering you have been wasting time looking at entry level homes and you can afford much more house. Do you have anything saved for a downpayment? Most lease purchase deals still have downpayments. You may be better off to stay where you are and work on your credit score and then re-visit the option of purchasing a home once your score has improved. It is easier to build good credit than repair bad credit. If you want more advice or need help please let me know. I would be happy to help you to find the right home.

Good evening,

The townhouse next to me is listed for lease (by owner) in Old Enfield. The address is 1801 Polo Rd, is a 2-2.5 with a 2 car garage. They have it at $2,000 but it is very secure, close to downtown, and quiet. Please feel free to contact me if you want more details.

Best of luck with your search!

Dear Ben,
According to the Austin Chamber of Commerce there are still 1000 people a week moving into Austin. That is what is keeping prices solid during a down economy, IMHO. Prices follow the law of supply and demand, plain and simple.

Betina Foreman answered:
The First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit program runs through November 30th. You can get up to $8000 tax credit on a home or condo as long as it is your primary residence. If you have not owned a home in the last three years you will qualify as a first time home buyer. I would contact a lender to ensure that you will qualify for the program. I have contact informaton on several great lenders on my website. If you want to take advantage of the program you need to find a home ASAP, as you must close on the property before the November30th deadline. Please call or email me if I may help you find your next Austin home.

Hi Lora,

It sounds as though the particular location in which you're trying to publish your blog may not be in our database. Can you let me know which location it is so I can investigate further? If so, you can post that information here or feel free to send it to me via my profile.

In the meantime, I suggest that you post your blog in a wider location - the state you're in for example if you're attempting to post within a city - or you can always select All Locations. You'll then be able to update the blog location at a later time once we get things sorted out.

Thank you for making us aware of this.

Best Wishes,

Emily Gibson
