Dear Jonelle,
I live very close to Travis Country, and I have been in Austin for the last 20 years watching and working in this market. Of course I would be happy to assist you with a CMA for your client. Give me a call or send me an email As much as I hate to say it, right now Austin is more of a Buyers Market. So it may be in his best interest to wait a little while. If you can give me some particulars about the property I will send you a CMA asap! Thanks for the opportunity!

Dear SRT,
This is a wonderful neighborhood and values have continously gone up. Bear in mind a single family home tends to gain value more quickly than a condo. However with the price of single family homes in Austin skyrocketing, more people are considering condos as a better choice than renting an apartment.

Choosing a condo is also a lifestyle choice. Do you want to maintain a yard, or have someone do that for you? Do you want more space between you and your neighbors?

Remember that most condos will have monthly HOA fees that are mandatory. These fees can be as low as$30 a month or as high as $400+ per month. You will need to factor that into your hard cost each month.

Think about what is important to you and please give me a call if I may be of assistance.
Good luck!
