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



  We decided to get out of the house last night for awhile.  Unfortunately, we waited until it was a bit late to do much that would be fun for the kids, so we ended up doing a lot of much-needed grocery shopping instead.  We tried to make it a little bit fun by allowing the kids to pick a book or...
My children seem to provide never-ending fodder for my blog posts with the funny things that they say and do.  Here are a few things I wanted to share: A few days ago, when my mom was in town, we went to visit my mother-in-law, Jackie, as she is in a nursing home.  While my wife and I were talkin...
As part of my ongoing series, this week I am presenting a few homes that can be purchased in the general Austin area for a cool half million dollars (or a bit less).This property is listed at only $485,000, and it includes approximately 4500 square feet, with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and a 3-car ga...
  I opened up the Sunday paper this evening to skim through it while I was cooking some Ramen noodles for my six-year old daughter, and I was struck by an interesting juxtaposition.  There was a front page article bemoaning the fact that the housing slowdown had "finally hit Austin".  I looked ov...
A couple of days ago, I was driving on City Park Road headed toward Emma Long Metropolitan Park, which sits right on Lake Austin.  It's a relaxing drive on a winding road, and it was a beautiful October day.  As I came around a corner, I noticed that there was a police car following three trucks ...

At the risk of being pigeonholed in a specific genre this week, I have another music topic that came to me last night.  While I was writing my last post (Radio Ga Ga - The Jukebox of my Mind and Life (The Early Years)), I started thinking about song lyrics. Over the years, I have probably been am...
  Having been born and raised in Dallas, and having lived in the Austin area since 1988, I grew up not really thinking about what a great state this is and how nice it really is to live here.  After I got my real estate license and started working with out-of-state buyers, I realized that many of...
In today's market, getting a buyer into the car with you to look at property is difficult enough, so you want to ensure that your trip is as productive as possible.  I have probably taken 500 or more buyers in my car since I first started in real estate in early 1997, and is now second nature for...
As part of my continuing series, I am moving up the ladder a bit more this week to $400,000, in order to demonstrate the awesome values to be found in and around the Austin, Texas area.  Here are a few current Austin-area listings that can be yours for $400,000 (or less): This home was built in 2...
