I agree with the below, it's better to call the ISD directly.

A property management company would be able to guide you the best in this regard. He would tell you about the areas where the residential rental demand exceeds supply. Get in touch with one at the earliest. ... more

West Wood is by FAR the best high school in Round Rock. It has the IB program, and much higher test scores than any of the other schools.

Very close - like everyone said about a mile or so. However you have to cross a major freeway to get there so you would most likely need a car.

Hello Taqdees,

As it has been said the market is still very active. Home prices are still being driven up due to the larger number of people moving into the Austin area. If you need any help or have any questions please let me know. I am a Realtor and Mortgage Broker so I can not only help you negotiate the best price on a new build home with the builder I can also help you obtain better financing options.

Builders want you to use their own "in-house" lenders and offer you perks or promotions to do so. The problem is their lenders charge a lot more in a higher rate and fees. On a purchase of this size I can typically save you $3,000 to $4,000 via a lender credit that they would pocket. So even if you need to use the builder's lender we can force them to give you a better deal based on what I am able to offer you. It's a win-win for you and will save you a lot of money.

Hope this helps.

Hi Ryan, it's projected about 130 people are moving into the Austin area each day. We're currently short on inventory properties for sale. PLUS, it's also a hot lease market. The time is now to buy as interest rates are creeping up as well sales prices. Interest rates did stabilize over the last two weeks at around 4.6 which is still a great deal. My personal projection though not guaranteed, is that my clients who purchased in the last couple of years have realized a nice rise in home value therefore they have established equity in a short period of time. Clients who buy today will experience a rise in home value in a couple of years as well. I do not believe the return on investment can be found in any other type of investment market. Thanks! ... more

Hi Sylvia,

This property was listed for $375,000 and has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. It was withdrawn from the market by the seller after a long period on the market. It sits on a 2 acre lot as well. If you would like more information just contact me. If you would like to find other homes with over an acre, you can search directly on my site at

I hope this helps.

Laura Rosales answered:
Hi Lena,
Not recently in Georgetown. It has only happened to me once recently on a North Austin Property. As long as the Realtor does a market analysis and is able to locate comps in the area (which is exactly what the appraiser does), you are okay. It tends to happen more with rural properties in Georgetown and I am hearing some lender friends say it is happening more on refinances right now. We are in a Sellers market though so if the inventory remains tight we may see it more in late Spring and Summer. The supply and demand factor will definantly cause it.

The Truth answered:
I know plenty of people in the community and dell has a reputation of treating there people like crap. Also be aware that texas is a right to work state and the labor laws and corporate structure is crap. In williamson county you do not get a break or lunch by law, only in Austin which recently passed a law in 2010. Seek a corporation that has headquarters somewhere outside of Texas, (better corporate structure and policies. Like Apple, Amd, Nvidia, IBM,Electronic Arts..Etc ...They have operations in the north part of austin close to round rock. ... more

Actually I have a rental property in Round Rock. The rates vary but anywhere from $950 and up. For a 1700 square foot home you would probably pay around 1150-1300 depending on the area of Round Rock.

What area are you trying to find a place. Call me if you have questions, I would be happy to assist you.

First quarter sold prices in Forest Creek have been remarkably consistent from 2001 through 2011.

The average sold price in Forest Creek hovers between a low of $260,865 in 2004 and a high of $288,324 in 2007. The average for 2011 (with 1 day left in the quarter) is $277,371.

The median sold price is similarly consistent ranging from a low of $222,500 in 2004 to a high of $255,000 in 2005. The median for the first quarter of 2011 (with one day left to go) is $242,315.

The minimum sold price has also been consistent, ranging from a low of $153,500 in 2009 to a high of $201,020 in 2002. The lowest sold price during Q1 of 2011 was $170,100.

The most variation has been the highest sold price. One home sold for $769,000 in 2007. This is clearly an anomaly since the average for the highest sold price from 2001 through 2011 is $531,862.

All in all, it would be inaccurate to say that home values in Forest Creek are "sliding" based upon 1st quarter figures for the past 11 years. The neighborhood is remarkably consistent.

In any given development, the developer will typically plan on a range of prices calculated to maximize their investment. They will develop premium sections that target the top end and other sections that are less expensive. That is true in Forest Creek just as it is in the other neighborhoods that you mention. The developer intends for the lower priced homes to benefit from the "cache" of the higher priced homes.

HBHMgmt answered:
Based on the activity of my listings the past few weeks, it seems that 2011 is going to be a very good year, Buyers are actively making offers presently. This may be to concerns about the rise of interest rates during the coming months. I have been stressing to my sellers to take advantage of this opportunity and price right NOW so they don't miss this window. I did some calculations the other day and determined that for every 1/4 point rise in interest rates, buyers lose from 2-3% in purchasing power. That is significant and since December, average rates have climber 3/4 of a point! Now is the time! ... more

Although I dont have the answer I disagree with all the other Sales answers. It should be very easy to determine the average time home is listed prior to selling at a selling prices of 180,000. She is not asking how long will my house take at 180k - if she was then I would agree that many factors come into play. ... more
