🏠 HOUSE IS A 6, BUT… 😆

You’ve probably seen the latest TikTok craze, “He’s  perfect, but,”. These memes describe the attributes, both positive and negative, that either increase or decrease someone’s desirability as a partner. I thought we’d join the fun with an Austin real estate version….

IT’S A 2, BUT IT’S IN ROLLINGWOOD 

As the old saying goes, location, location, location!  Rollingwood is close to downtown with beautiful tree-lined streets and large lots! The area is a wonderful mix of upscale homes, both old and new. The neighborhood has access to Zilker Park. Barton Springs  high-end dining and shopping. Ready to buy in Rollingwood?

IT’S A 6, BUT IT HAS A POOL 

Propelled by the pandemic, the demand for pools across Austin skyrocketed!  Buyers are still wanting homes with more flexible spaces for offices and gyms as well as luxurious outdoor spaces. The backyard oasis trend continues, especially with the extended triple degree temperatures.  Properties with pools definitely make a splash with buyers! 

IT’S A 10, BUT PRICED TOO HIGH

In just a short time buyer behavior has changed from borderline reckless to extremely cautious! Austin’s market is still very healthy, just more normalized. Now with time to decide and more options to choose from, buyers are pickier than before! In order for a house to sell it has to be 10 out of 10 – priced right and in great condition. 

IT’S A 6, BUT YOU CAN WALK TO GUERO’S

It’s been an Austin institution for 30 years! This funky Mexican restaurant has  is the perfect spot to meet up with friends, listen to live music and enjoy a margarita! I could have inserted any iconic restaurant like El Patio, Fonda San Miguel, Jeffrey’s, Sway, Franklin’s, etc…. close in neighborhoods, near the things that make Austin great will almost always be good for your real estate value! 

I could play this game for a long time! 😆 What’s your suggestion for an Austin real estate meme?
