Annette Lawrence answered:
Overvalued by 19%, but still selling.

Ruben, value is determined by what a buyer is willing to pay.
My thoughts are you need better data.

Another option is a different strategy.
Chat with your REALTOR regarding your options.

Saturday later afternoons (2-4) or Sunday (12-3). With open houses posted online now you'll get any serious buyers through at either day. Maybe a little more random traffic on Sundays. ... more

Hi Myron,

It is only about 2.9 miles (6 minutes) from 72 Woodcreek to Visitor Center/Brookshire Brother grocery store. Although Woodcreek has its own city hall, they both share same zip code 78676.

Hope this helps,

SMTX Agent 666 answered:
The Rental Mkt in San Marcos is crazy busy at the moment. Primarily driven by the student body of Texas State, a lot of property is being leased, sometimes sight unseen. Rental prices are super inflated due to the housing shortage for students. My advise to you is make sure you have your financial ducks in a row before you step into the Rental Mkt of the 78666. As a rule of thumb, I advise my clients to have 2.5 to 3 times their budget in reserves to cover their startup expenses such as application fees, deposits. administration, utilities, etc. Contrary to popular belief, Moving is NOT Free!

Hope this Helps.

Thank you everyone for clarifying. It is disappointing that there are more photos of the river park than the actual property for sale. This misleads the buyer into thinking that it is a waterfront property. I suppose this is done to get more hits on the listing. ... more

This is a small community and just on Trulia there are 86 homes in the +2,000 sq ft, 3-2 300K to 700K range so thought his question was still pertinent.

Blaine Dunlap answered:
The change to Division 1 is huge and it doesn't have anything to do with football. The Texas legislature has made a commitment to Texas State in terms of funding and growth that is going to add 1,200 students a year for the foreseeable future. The change to Division 1 is only a part of this. As far a Division 1, Texas State will have more visitors to sporting events from larger cities. San Marcos is one of the best kept secretes in Texas and when more people realize what a beautiful place it is, values will increase. So this gives you two growth bumps, more students, and out of town investors and relocation clients. ... more

Theresa Hogan answered:
Hi Rob,
There are many factors that you have to consider when weighing your options. You need to first find out what your house is worth right now. (As an agent in the Buda area, I can do a CMA for you to determine this figure). How much do you owe? Will you have to come to the table with cash if you do try to sell today? The toll road is not so much of a factor as the market in Buda is. We are a very desirable community and home prices have stayed stable for the most part. We have excellent schools and families want to be here. That in it self is a pro. The cons are homes are staying on the market longer and this is not the best time of year to sell. Typically spring is better. Renting is a good option for this area. There are many families moving in from out of town and even out of state who want to rent to try to get a feel for the area before they commit to buying.
We have a shortage of rental property in Buda, so I feel you would have an application relatively soon.
Let me know if I can help in anyother way.
