Deep in the Heart of Texas

“There are only two seasons in Texas, football and spring football.”

Texas Longhorns fans are some of the most intense and passionate in the country! Fall is the time of year when UT devotees go BIG showcasing their burnt orange pride in the form of mega tailgates and elaborate game day couture. Here’s to a great football weekend – Go Longhorns! Beat Bama! 🏈

5 Reasons Fall is a Great Time to Sell

5 REASONS FALL IS A GREAT TIME TO SELL

Fall isn’t just a good time for football…it’s a great time to sell a home in Austin! Here’s why:

1. SERIOUS BUYERS
During the fall months, serious homebuyers are eager to settle in to a new home before the holiday season ramps up.

2. LESS COMPETITION
Housing inventory is typically lower during the fall months. With fewer homes for sale, sellers have less competition and more power to sell on their terms.

3. PRICING STRATEGY
Generally speaking, Austin home prices reached their high point and are leveling out. In many cases we are seeing price reductions and more aggressive pricing strategies. Listing your home NOW ensures you are as close to peak prices as possible.

4. COOLER WEATHER
After a summer of record breaking temperatures, we know all too well that Austin can get HOT! It’s simply easier for buyers to look at homes when the weather is cooler. Of course plants and landscaping look better too!

5. TODAY’S ENVIRONMENT
The Fed has indicated they are going to keep upward pressure on interest rates until they see an improvement in inflation. That means serious buyers, while still a bit apprehensive, are out there looking to make something happen sooner than later.
Do you have questions about what your home is worth today? Give me a call to discuss your specific property, timeline and plans.

LONGHORN TAILGATING

A great UT tailgate is a sight to behold—BBQ, beer and plenty of queso neatly  organized under tents with folding chairs, sound systems, multiple flat screen televisions and dozens of Longhorn fans with beating Bama on their minds! Join  the Burnt Orange Bleeders and support the Lone Star Paralysis Foundation.
