Buying a home in Austin 2011 - 11:57 AM
Adopting the vision from my church concerning the New Year ahead of us, I thought how appropriate it would also be for people looking to buy a home this year in Austin. Slow, focused, and creative.

However, if you can afford 3-5 months (0 comments)

And truly scary. (4 comments)
