brentwood: Brentwood October Stats (Austin, TX 78757) - 11/04/21 01:45 PM
We have been digesting the numbers from last month for Midtown's popular neighborhood Brentwood. If you've been following my blog past months, October looks like we took a sharpe dip in values....HOWEVER, the devil is in the details.  Of the sales last month, only 1 home toped the $1M mark.  A majority of the homes were sales that went to developers, including my listing at 6107 Grover Ave.  There were no new construction sales last month, or many larger homes which traditional push the averages higher.
Under contract- 10Sales in October - 10Avg. list- $728,400Avg. sold price- $766,650Avg. DOM- 15Avg. sq ft … (5 comments)

Now that everyone is back from vacation and school is in session we are seeing more stabilization within the market.  The Brentwood neighborhood is still seeing a pretty fluid market, but not as crazy as earlier in the year.

brentwood: August 2021 Statistics in Brentwood (Austin 78757) - 09/03/21 01:30 PM
The Dog Days of Summer are upon us, and Fall is hopefully around the corner. I mean pumpkin spice lattes are out already!  There are indicators we are starting to balance ever so slightly in the Austin market, but the seasonal August lull seems to have run its course last month. Austinites are taking last minute vacations to cooler temps, preparing for school and folks are all around distracted from real estate.
We are anxious to see what transpired after Labor Day. Typically, the market tends to pick back up in September, and we've had more phone calls with buyers looking to … (2 comments)

brentwood: Brentwood Neighborhood (Austin, TX 78757) '20 vs '21 - 08/03/21 02:14 PM
What a difference a year makes in our real estate market and the year is not over yet!
There was a pivot in our market early January 2021, and we went from a strong Sellers market to a hyper competitive Sellers market. We weren't just seeing a few offers on a property, but 10-20+ offers on a single home.  Buyers were including appraisal waivers (if you don't know about this, you should before entering the market as a buyer or seller), offering insanely high option fees (making it very painful to terminate after inspections) and obviously going well over initial asking … (0 comments)

brentwood: Lil' Lane of Lights in Crestview (Austin, TX 78757) - 12/04/20 11:27 AM
Lil' Lane of Lights  This year the Violet Crown Clubhouse and the Episcopal Church are working together to create a fun light display for the Crestview / Brentwood neighborhoods, and are asking people to add some Holiday cheer by brightening up their homes in the neighborhood since this year is going to look a little different for most families who are not able to get together. This is a free, walkable light display featuring a handful of neighborhood organizations benefitting various local charities. The display runs from December 11th - Jan 3rd.  As a participant in this fun new tradition, I've … (3 comments)

brentwood: Community impact / repurpose in Crestview Neighborhood Austin, TX - 09/09/20 09:21 AM
 
Austin is going to be turning the Ryan Drive storage lot into more housing and parkland development. Austin Energy purchased the 5.5 acres on the edge of Crestview in 1997, where it has been using the site for operation storage. This has been an ongoing discussion for years, privately among neighborhood residents wanting something more useful, and now publicly as the city of Austin finally decided to take initiative and move forward with the restoration plan. For many who live in the surrounding communities of Brentwood and Crestview, the cluttered storage has been an eyesore.
 
Located just west of North Lamar Boulevard, at the corner … (4 comments)

brentwood: Midtown Estate Setting | Stuart Sampley Designed - 07/15/20 12:46 PM
As original as the Crestview / Brentwood neighborhood, this Stuart Sampley designed project is a true one of a kind. The classic look and inviting front porch offer a subtle, yet memorable impression, but most don't understand the gravity of all this home offers.
 
We start on the ground floor with multiple living areas, master suite + office / exercise room attached, along with a full bath and well appointed MUD room that exits to the backyard. The heart of the home truly centers around the kitchen which overlooks the main family room via a bartop and boasts valuable prep space on … (7 comments)

This little bungalow had multiple offers because of the incredible location and loads of updates by the current owners. We worked together putting an effective marketing strategy together and final staging touches. And it worked! We had multiple offers the first weekend and went right past inspections!
Our clients will miss being next to their loving neighbors who are always looking out for one another. This cute home had new kitchen cabinets / counters installed a few years back, with loads of natural light, custom built in bookshelves, original hardwood floors, with a semi open floor plan and flexible space. I love … (9 comments)

brentwood: Crestview Pharmacy Says Goodbye - 03/01/17 02:55 PM
The Crestview Pharmacy, owned and operated since 1964 by The Harper Family, has been serving the Crestview / Brentwood Neighborhoods and surrounding communities in what is now North Central (Midtown) Austin. No longer the outskirts of Austin, these 2 popular neighborhoods have seen a lot of change in the last few years.  Last year the Crestview Mini Mart traded hands, and is now Arlan's Market .  The Little Deli still draws large lunch and dinner crowds, and you can stop in to see your favorite stylist at Crestview Barber Shop.  
My family has seen the changes slowly unfold the past 15 years, but … (1 comments)

brentwood: Brentwood / Crestview Year in Review 2016 (Austin's Midtown) - 01/17/17 12:37 PM
How did the Crestview and Brentwood neighborhoods fair during the 2016 housing market?  Curious to see our 3 year market trend?  I have the detailed numbers below, with addition insight.  In broad terms, 2016 proved to be another busy year, but at a slightly more reserved pace.  In Austin we saw a 1.7% increase in home sales over 2015.  The median home price rose 5.8% to $340,000.  Heading into the new year, Austin still remains just below 2 months of available inventory which is below the benchmark of 6.5 months for a balanced market. (Source Austin Board of Realtors)

This morning a call for help was posted on the Crestview Neighborhood Association Facebook page.  Black Star Co-op is owned by a community of more than 3,000 individuals and organizations, and they are democratically managed by their Workers' Assembly.  They are sending out an S.O.S, noted below, and need your help to keep the doors open.  It's cold outside and what better way to warm up this weekend!  
Black Star is located along Airport Blvd in the Crestview Commons project right next to the Crestview Station (take the light rail over if you live in other areas of town and ditch … (2 comments)

brentwood: Brentwood / Crestview Market Stats ~ November 2016 - 12/07/16 07:21 AM
Happy Holidays! We are in the final stretch of 2016 and in another week we should see things finally start to slow as people break for vacation and time with families.  I've seen continued activity, and been busy with a couple of buyers who are trying to lock something down before we enter Spring.  Talks of interest rate hikes seem to be fueling some added urgency in buyer's minds as well.  While increased rates will impact buyers purchase ability, a small tick up still has us at historically low rates! I was thrilled to buy my first home around a 6.5% - 7% … (1 comments)

brentwood: October Stats 2016 ~ Brentwood / Crestview (Austin, TX 78757) - 11/15/16 01:28 AM
It's hard to believe we inside Thanksgiving week!  The holidays kick in another gear with each passing day, and as such, buyers / sellers attention gets a little more distracted away from real estate.  This DOES NOT mean real estate hibernates through winter, especially in Austin, TX where today it will be in the low 70's!
Yes, it's true there seem to be fewer buyers and sellers from now till early January.  HOWEVER, those active players in the market are generally motivated to find a home or sell....because why else would you pass up holiday parties / travels to simply test the waters and … (0 comments)
