Houses are Cheap, Renting in Austin Getting Expensive

Housing Market, Austin, Round Rock, Cedar ParkWith the economy still lagging, interest rates down, and unemployment still hovering around  6-6.5% in the Austin metro area it’s no surprise that homes are cheap so this is good if you are in the market to buy a home. Not to mention that we have some exclusive deals with builders where they are giving our clients this coming week blowout deals to unload 2-3 homes. The bad is if you are trying to sell your home, it is still kind of slow. We have been doing some creative things to move our clients homes faster such as affordable low cost upgrades that really have made a difference (kitchen, bath – that kind of thing). We will bring in one of our interior designers to scope out the possibilities, if needed.

Now renting has been red hot especially in the Cedar Park area. There are still a few nice (oh yeah, I scrutinize the heck out of the places) apartment complexes that are giving good deals like the 1BR, brand new, $749 special we have on our home page this week with granite upgrades. This same place has a fantastic exercise room for those that need to stay looking fit and trim.

I love a challenge. Are you looking for anything unique?
