You would absolutely love it here, and would fit in perfectly! There is a huge local food movement in many of the restaurants, which has spurred many local farmers to expand their crops and visit the farmers markets. There are many regular ones in and around Austin. Here' s a link to my blog with a list of options. ... more

Hi Blake,

I assume you are asking this information to determine whether or not you'll relocate to Texas.

Click on the web reference link to view the information. If you need further information just email or call me at your earliest convenience.

By the way, Austin is really the place to be. FYI, Austin averages about 300 days of sunshine compared to Seattle and caters to every possible recreational and social need an individual may have or want to experience.

I look forward to helping you with all your future real estate needs.

Lisa Salinas-Gruver answered:
I am sorry that you are going through this, if you are mainly applying at apartments, they will most likely turn you down. If you try using a Real estate Agent and apply for a home, they can then ask the owner ahead of time before you even spend the application fee. It is much better to get it out in the open and just let them know ahead of time. Good luck to you!! ... more

Ronald Cullinan answered:
Bel, a few years ago, the public utility commission changed the rules regarding disclosure. It now can be gotten by securing the information from bills of current owner/tenant, or by getting permission to disclose that and then going to the servicer. If you are looking to purchase or rent a property there, then your Realtor can help you request this information. Usually, it can be gotten, just takes a little bit of effort and time. ... more

The best advice is to hire a Realtor to assist you. I'm sure that sounds biased. It's also the truth.

Feel free to email me your budget, but I can also send you to a friend who is a Commercial Agent. I'm assuming you want a Church that is still zoned as a Church?

There is no map that I know of. The core parts of Austin will be served by City of Austin Electric. Some outskirts of Austin are also served by Pedernales Electric Co-Op. You can call COAE or ONCOR and give them the address of the property your interested in and find out if they serve that property. I wish you luck! ... more

I would have to go with location first and foremost. If you do not have an agent I would be glad to discuss the pros and cons of the location, age, size and relative market values.

Hi again, Mary! Will your husband be based at Fort Hood or will he be getting out of the service? The area is really different from Austin and so are the schools. If you do decide to settle near Fort Hood, I can refer you to an agent who is an expert in that area.
