The Oldham Group Austin | Shift Happens & Real Estate Still Happens

“Shifts are never unexpected but rarely predictable. You know one is coming. You just don’t know when. They are, in fact, in inevitable –shifts happen.” Gary Keller


As our market starts to transition towards a more balanced environment, it’s important to note that life still happens whether it’s a buyer’s market or a seller’s market. People get married, have babies, get promoted, get sick, get divorced or even retire. These life changes are the reason people buy and sell…they create urgency and they happen all the time!


Here’s your chance! Inventory numbers are starting to tick up, providing you with more choices and more opportunities to get in. Unlike the market of the previous two years, you can be choosy! Select homes that are priced well, in good condition, and are in good locations with great schools and amenities. Use the Oldham Group to help you expertly negotiate seller incentives! 


It’s time to act! If you were thinking about selling, it’s time for a personal  consultation as there is a window of opportunity that is closing quickly.  Rates are expected to go up further, prices in some areas are starting to adjust and inventory, while creeping up, is still very low. We’re paying very close attention to the direction the market is going and the speed at which it is moving. Let’s talk! 


This city is not immune to a shift but our market is well-positioned to ride one out. We have a diverse economy; our local employers continue to create new jobs and our population is growing. The real estate inventory remains incredibly low, hovering at just 2 months. We’ll feel the impact of a shifted market but probably not as sharply or as long as other parts of the country.

Have you ever dunked your fries into a fast food vanilla shake? That’s exactly what these taste like. HEB has some interesting limited edition flavors like South Style Chicken, Pepperoni Pizza Rolls and the aforementioned Vanilla Milkshake. I prefer to eat my fries and shake separately but for them to be combined into one flavor and bagged is a fun summer flavor adventure. Visit HEB
