This blog is about the Austin real estate market, along with tips for agents and other funny stuff that I deem fit to include.



 For those of you who don't know who Henny Youngman is, shame on you!  No, seriously, Henny Youngman was known as "King of the One Liners".  He actually passed away the same year that my son was born (1998).  His most famous line was "Take my wife.....please!" My son also seems to have a penchant...
I was meme'd by Joey Aszterbaum and I was asked to write a book meme.  I called this my "very best" book meme, because it is my first and only book meme.  Well, here goes nothing:   The Bible I don't know that I really need to do a lot of explaining on this one.  I finished my first complete read...
As a broker, this is the type of question that I am asked somewhat frequently.  What will $______ buy in your market?  Sometimes, this comes from relocating buyers, and sometimes it comes from potential investors from other areas of the country.  Well, in an effort to answer this for the $200,000...
It just happens sometimes.  It's nothing you've done wrong.  You get the sellers to agree to a reasonable price, then their neighbor says, "Wow!  That sounds really low to me.  Is your agent just trying to get the house sold quickly so they won't have to work at it?"  The seller calls you with qu...
We have a listing in Round Rock located in Stone Canyon, which is one of the most highly sought-after communities in town.  With its greenbelts, shaded trails, pools, and Blue Ribbon Fern Bluff Elementary School, this is a terrific spot to choose your next home.  This one-story home features 2212...
Hello all - This is my first attempt at blogging from a hotel room while traveling with my family.  We arrived in San Antonio yesterday for my wife's 20-year high school reunion.  We brought along her sister and her sister's husband to help with childcare while we are here.  We will be here until...
I just listed a home in Pflugerville that was referred to me by my inspector friend (who is going to join AR soon).  It was built in 1998, and it has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.  All of the bedrooms are upstairs, and the master bedroom is HUGE.  The upstairs carpet was replaced a couple of days...
They recently opened a restaurant in the Arbor Walk shopping area in north Austin (which appears to be a chain, but this is the first one I have seen), and my wife and I kept making fun of the name: Once, when she was shopping in the area with our kids, she couldn't help but laugh because two lad...
I decided to write another post about funny things that my kids said this past week.  The other day, I was playing with my two older kids in the bedroom (they are 8 and 6).  We were playing under the blankets and wrestling around a little, which usually devolves into a tickle fight.  This day was...
I was wondering how many views I would get with a title like the one above.  I think it is human nature to go against the grain on things like this.  "You can't tell me what to do.  I will read it if I want to.  What is it anyway?"  I will be interested to see how many people click on the link to...
