Canyon Creek offers homes from the high $300,000’s to the mid $600,000’s.

A note to sellers in Canyon Creek:

More than ever before “Sellers must travel farther to meet expectations of buyers.”

Today’s buyers are savvy about current home values and available inventory. They are concerned about possible rising interest rates, they resist overpriced listings and many young relocating millennials are looking closer in to be where the action is in Austin! The 78741 zip code (East Riverside) is where most relocating buyers are making offers and finding themselves in strong competition for homes. Remember the old adage..location...location!

The current active homes in Canyon Creek are seeing elevated days on market (average 202 days) and we’re seeing many price reductions as we head into December. The cold, wet rainy weather in October contributed to fewer buyer showings so fewer sales in November.

Homes in Canyon Creek in the low $400,000 are sought after as more buyers qualify in this price range.

Let me assist you in identifying your short and long term housing needs. With interest rates possibly rising along with decreasing inventory now is the time to make your move. Preparation is the key to presenting your home in its best light coupled with listing at market price. If you’re considering selling your home allow me to partner with you in determining the right price. Handling the demand, offers and dialog with appraisers requires a seasoned professional with systems and processes in place.

As a Canyon Creek resident since 1994 I know the intricacies of our community and our hyper-local real estate market. Procuring the maximum dollar for your home in any market is always my goal. You need a full service real estate agent who has a long-standing history of doing just that!
