Austin Apartment Market Data March 2014

Posted by Tom Bates

 

O’Conner & Associates updated Austin apartment market data shows continued strong growth for the Austin apartment segment.  Austin currently has 9,657 Austin apartment units under construction (33 apartment projects!) and 1,862 Austin apartment units in the planning stage.  This strong Austin apartment rental market along with low Austin new construction homes coming on the market means that the Austin real estate market will probably continue to feel an inventory and price squeeze for the next few years at least.

Data is from O’Conner & Associates dated March 2014Austin apartment market data March 2014

3-Car Garage + Workshop in Avery Ranch

Posted by Tom Bates

 

This is a great deal in Avery Ranch. Beautiful white limestone home (all 4 sides) on a large corner lot. Home has a full 3 car garage PLUS an extra workshop.  This is a pretty unique floorplan for the area.  If you wanted to you, you could quickly convert the attached workshop to another bedroom or office.  Home is ready to go with a play scape and HUGE covered patio in the back yard. This home will absolutely sell fast when we put it on the market.  Call me to preview it 512-413-0870.

Some fun green building pointers in here, please do not build a Budweiser-themed house in Austin

Posted by Tom Bates

 

While we do not have the same design aesthetic, this guy makes some great green home building points.  And I am sure that someone will read this and decide that they also need a Budweiser-themed house, and while my preference would be Stella, if forced, I guess it’s better than a red Solo Cup-themed house.  Have fun with your green DYI building, and keep it classy Austin….
