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



On March 11th, which is the day before SXSW Interactive starts, Austin will be hosting a very cool RE Barcamp event downtown.  I plan to be there helping with check-in at the beginning, and probably hanging out at the after party, too.  :) If you don't know what a Barcamp is, you have to come and...
Well, it appears that Texas remains one of the strongest real estate investments around, as evidenced by a new list released by last week.  In fact, ours was the only state to place more than one city on the list (3 total!).  Austin is #10 on their "America's Best Housing Markets" list...
Nestled on a cul-de-sac street in one of Round Rock's most popular communities, 2012 Solitude Cove offers a terrific, functional layout with nice space at an affordable price.  If you get a home under contract by April 30th and close by June 30th, you may qualify for one of the federal homebuyer ...
After attending Raincamp Dallas, I received a number of requests to re-teach some of our recent classes.  Jeremy and I will be offering both of our initial 210 Consulting webinars next week once again.  "How to Chug Google Juice AND Get 15 Years of Fame" - Monday, March 1st - 1-3pm Eastern The pr...
If you've been reading my blog here on ActiveRain for any length of time, you have probably figured out that I enjoy milestone posts.  Points, comments, posts, whatever.  Not long ago, I wrote my 1000th post on this network. Yesterday, my blog crossed the 40,000-comment threshold.   I remember wh...
I wrote yesterday asking my local Austin-area friends if they would be interested in helping my 8-year old daughter by buying Girl Scout Cookies from us.  Many people said that they would if they could, but it's not practical to ship them to other states or cities. Others mentioned that the large...
I'm curious to see if this will bring results or not.  If not, no harm done.  If so, I can help out a good cause and my daughter at the same time. If you live in the general Austin area, let me know if you would like to buy some Girl Scout Cookies.  My 8-year-old daughter is selling them for the ...
On Monday night, I drove up to my mom's house near Dallas and spent the night in anticipation of the Raincamp event the next day.  Surprisingly, there was still several inches of snow on the ground when I arrived, although the roads were clear.  Since we didn't get any snow at all at my house, I ...
When I was a kid, I remember being excited about my "half birthday".  For anyone who may be unfamiliar with this concept, it's the day you are halfway between birthdays.  As in, "I'm five and a half today!"  From that day forward, you are no longer 5, or 8, or 12.  The "and a half" has to be adde...
  I've been watching my post number climb inexorably toward four-figure range lately, although it seems like I got bogged down a bit through the holiday season.  This post is #1000 for me on this network.      When I started on AR back in August 2007, I never could have imagined how this journey...
