Hi Mohammad,

To be truthful I am not sure this listing is correct. Gehan usually builds homes in the outer lying areas of Austin (I have assisted in two purchases of Gehan homes in Cedar Park and Pflugerville - and they build good homes, too). Secondly, I cannot imagine one can find new construction in Barton Hills for that price.

If you would like to find this home in another area or look for homes in Barton Hills, I would be happy to send you information.

The link you sent indicates that the house sold on 8/24/2012. A lot of these sites are syndicated from the MLS systems and/or the information is input by the selling Realtor. Either way, the sold information stays available to the general public for some time. ... more

Well, if typical of the law of supply and demand, then prices will necessarily rise. However, if anyone knows that for sure, they don't dabble in Real Estate. Anyone who can accurately tell the future about anything, is sitting on their idea of the perfect place to live and raking in money playing the stock market or some other gambling venue.

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...
http://www.inman.com/reports/10-markets-invest/index.html

This one from Money is a little older:
http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2011/real_estate/1107/gallery.best_investment_markets/index.html

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:

None of us have a crystal ball to know the future. What we do know is that the Austin market has been doing very well for both selling and renting. The best way to know what is the right solution for you is to do an in depth comparative market analysis for your particular neighborhood. Some neighborhoods are selling better than others and some are seeing more increased prices than others. Generalizations will do you no good. Let me know if I can be of help. ... more

Hi Tramsblondes (great name),

This would be called the "promise the agent hopes they never have to live up to" program, taught in the school of "I wanna be an agent and offer anything I can just to get people to list their homes with me" school. There are so many holes in the terms and conditions that the paper it's written on isn't even good to use as screening material. Can I be more blunt than this?

My recommendation to customers is to use an agent who has a reputation of knowing how to sell homes such that they don't have to offer a guarantee that really isn't one? Sad to think this kind of thing goes on, but it does.

Regards,

Jeffrey

P.S. If you want me to blow holes in the contract, send me a copy, it should be fun!

Kelly Freeman answered:
Great Hills is a rapidly growing market. I have 3 buyers searching in your neighborhood now. I would like the opportunity to do a free CMA of your property and see if I have a buyer immediately. At best I can do a market analysis of the property and tell you what it is worth. Please contact me tomorrow so I can get more details and help you price it aggressively.

Jeffrey Schnabel answered:
I would agree that if you want Austin, Steiner is not Austin. But Steiner has great schools and many good communities (it's not just a single large one). But the traffic getting down 2222 to Austin is horrible in the morning. You'll have much better luck in Lakeway, or Bee Cave, within the Lake Travis ISD. You can come down 71 to Southwest Parkway (the intersection of which is being improved as of this writing), and be downtown in 25 minutes, yet still feel like your in the country.

You can also look at Round Rock ISD in the Great Hills and Spicewood Springs area, but it will be more expensive than Lake Travis ISD. Then of course, you could consider Eanes, but the average price is $1M+.

If you need info on communities, schools, etc., call or email me and I can get you a relocation package asap!.

Jan Bowman answered:
Homes in the area you're asking about since the beginning of 2012 have sold at an average of $359,500, or $124.00 per sq. ft. and sold in about 38 days. Of course, there are lots of variables to consider, and many homes sold above or below this average. I would be happy to e-mail you a statistical report that goes into greater detail if this would be helpful - just let me know!

Nathan,
As I said before, select a professional to work with. General questions are cool but the specifics are saved for my clients. My business is real estate and that's how I feed my family. I can't work for free. Do you?

Phillip Baird answered:
It is a very good time to sell your home in 78704. If priced correctly, your house should sell quickly. You are in one of the hottest neighborhoods in town. Most people would buy it thinking they will add another bathroom and otherwise expand the house. Give me a call or email me and I will gladly go over the comps in your neighborhood and give you an idea of what your house is worth in the current market.

Kristee Leonard answered:
Yes, we have a shortage in the Austin rental market. 5,113 homes leased in Austin, Texas within the past 12 months (5/25/10 to 5/25/11). There are currently 372 homes active for lease. Therefore, the absorption
rate is 426 homes per month and with a current inventory of 372 homes we have a housing shortage in the Austin rental market. These stats were pulled from the ABOR MLS on 5/25/11.

I'll defer to my Realtor friends, but I believe it's at 96 days right now. Check out the latest link from Austin Board of Realtors for our latest market statistics.

http://www.abor.com/news_media/press_releases/2011/p9_11.cfm

Our local economy has held up well in the downturn as evidenced by various companies moving to town.

I hope this helps.

You can ask the city of Austin what the lot is zoned for. Do keep in mind that variances are sometimes granted, so there are no guarantees, but at least it is a place to start. If you need help, feel free to shoot me an email. ... more
