Serendipity Sundays ~ Timing is Everything

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

It’s that time of year when kids are moving out of the house and into a dorm room. Kids at home are back in school and you have now regained some sanity and can think rationally about some housing changes you might like to make this year.

If I told you the future would you change your behavior? I don’t think you would. If you live in Austin you have to realize we are in an excellent place to ride out the re-balancing in the market. Sure there is a shift in the market but our cost of living is still much lower than NYC, Boston, Washington DC, San Francisco and the list goes on.

There may be more home inventory and days on market are longer but it opens opportunities up for buyers to get a home without insane competition. With my expertise as a trusted real estate advisor I can guide you through the process, help you understand the market and how to leverage your needs in formulating a solid plan of action.

To get expert advice when you buy or sell a home this year, let’s connect today.

Good morning Dorie. The new plateau for Austin is higher than the last. Buyers can now walk the plateau and not have to run. Sellers need to be patient. And success will come to all! Enjoy the journey.

Good morning Dorie -  Your prices would still be affordable in other markets like the northeast.  And you have a great place to live.

The shift will help as I know of some who moved to Texas without even having a home. Texas is still attracting a lot of health care workers from CA. Good morning and Happy Labor Day Weekend.
