austin texas real estate: Donna Harris - Donna Homes - powered by JP and Associates Realtors - 11/03/17 08:56 AM
Over the years, October always seems to bring a lot of changes for me. Back in 1988, my Grandfather died in October. In 2000, I received my real estate license in October. In 2005, I got married in October...
In 2017, it was announced my brokerage was merging with another. Private Label Realty is now part of the JP & Associates, REALTORS® family of over 1000 agents strong.
With the change of brokerage comes a new logo that I'm excited about! I never, in a million years, thought I would use some bright color like hot-pink in a logo, but when different choices … (0 comments)

austin texas real estate: Total Eclipse of the... Earth - 08/02/17 12:27 PM
On Monday, August 21st, there will be an Eclipse. There are many areas across the country where you can see a "total" eclipse. For me, that's 630+ miles away in Missouri. Looks like it's going to hit both ends at Kansas City, Missouri as well as St. Louis.
If you want to see when the eclipse happens where you are, just put your zip code into this page and it'll tell you the exact time. In my zip code in Bee Cave, TX, I can see a very partial eclipse at 1:09 PM. According to the image, barely half will be covered.
Here's … (4 comments)

austin texas real estate: Austin Texas Homes - Exterior Window Shutters - 10/06/09 06:12 AM
Austin Texas Homes have many different styles.  One common exterior feature that many of the styles share is window shutters.  Are shutters common in your neighborhood?  I'm not talking about functioning shutters, as that is a very rare find.  I'm talking about shutters that are put on the exterior of homes just for decoration.  But, even though these shutters are just decoration, shouldn't they simulate the real thing?  Isn't that the point of having that kind of look on your home? Look at these pictures below...

What's wrong with them?  If you were to pretend to … (15 comments)

austin texas real estate: Real Estate - Buying a House - Austin TX- The Simple Steps to Follow- Part 1 - 08/14/09 06:08 AM
When buying a house in Austin TX, there are several steps to follow, but if broken down, it's much less intimidating. What else helps?  Doing the steps in a particular order.
For example, the first, and more important step to buying a home, whether you're a first time home buyer, or buying your fifth house, is getting Pre-APPROVED for a mortgage.  I used the term pre-approved because I don't want to see the term pre-qualified.
What's the difference? 
A pre-qualified buyer is someone who made a phone call to a mortgage professional, gave that person a few pieces of verbal information, … (9 comments)

austin texas real estate: Tax Free Weekend is Coming to Texas - 07/22/09 02:05 AM
I saw on the news a couple of days ago that some states are canceling their "Tax Free Weekend" next month because they can't afford to do it.
Texas WILL still have a "Tax Free Weekend".
What does this mean?  This means that many of the items you would buy for "back to school" for your kids or yourself would not be taxed. Items such as jeans, shirts, socks, tennis shoes, and sandals are all exempt from tax.
There are several items that are not exempt, like specialty items, such as cleats (soccer shoes), baseball pants, and most any sports related … (8 comments)

austin texas real estate: Another Austin TX Killer Insect in My House! - 07/02/09 03:59 AM
Over the past couple of weeks, I've been posting pictures of some "creatures" in and around my house.  Can you guess what this one is?

I walked into my Toilet Room, as it's the little room in the bathroom that separates the toilet, and I usually don't turn the light on in there because there's a window or because I have the light in the main bathroom on.
This evening, it was already dark outside, and I didn't have the main light on.  I just walked right into the Toilet Room, and casually turned the light on, and then … (12 comments)

austin texas real estate: Senna Hills in Austin TX - Community Information - 06/01/09 06:15 AM
Senna Hills is a great community outside the city limits of Austin, but still using an Austin, TX address. The taxes aren't too bad at "only" 2.3226%.

There are many "mature" areas of Senna Hills, but still several lots left to build brand new.  The lots that are left are in the 90 foot section which means HUGE yards and they also have great views!
Both Taylor Morrison and Drees Homes are building on the remaining lots.
Here are some pictures of the amenities.  You have a full-sized, lap pool, a kiddie pool, a park, a basketball court, and a tennis court.

This blog is to help educate Buyers, Sellers and even other Realtors across the country.  Each market is different and the way Real Estate is done is different.  Austin Real Estate is completely different than Dallas, California and Florida and everywhere else in between.  Some times there will be other things besides real estate as I like to rant and rave as much as the next!!  Come back often!
