Agave Austin in Full Swing

Posted by Dave Cothran Realtor

 

Good evening all,

I am excited to report that new construction in the Agave neighborhood of East Austin, is in full swing!  In Town Homes, out of Houston, will be finishing out this great east side neighborhood over the next few years.  They are currently building in the middle of the neighborhood on Seville and Pinion Vista, and will be systematically working their way through all of the vacant lots.  This is a great time to buy your new home in Agave, at a great value!  In Town’s first round of pricing is coming in well below the average price per square foot of resales in the neighborhood.  As they continue with development, there will be scheduled price increases.  I would love to help you make Agave your new home, please feel free to contact me for more information!Agave image

Spectacular Travis Height Modern 2000 Kenwood Ave

Posted by Dave Cothran Realtor

 

Good morning all,

It’s spring time in Austin, the Travis Heights neighborhood is in full bloom, and the zoysia grass, trees, and greenery at 2000 Kenwood Ave are no exception!  Now is the time to make this wonderful house your new home!  Click this link, 2000 Kenwood, for more information about this awesome property!  It’s getting warmer in Austin, but this yard provides tons of afternoon and evening shade, and the current owners love to spend time outside.  Don’t get the idea that when you go inside, the trees are lost, the architect thoughtfully placed the Jeld Wen casement windows throughout the home, to frame the natural beauty outside!   Need to really cool off?  2000 Kenwood Ave. is .3 miles from the popular, Big Stacy Pool at 800 E Live Oak.  If that’s not enough, we have confirmed with Peter at Cody Pools, there is room to build your own pool on the property!  Please feel free to contact me to schedule a showing, or let your Realtor know.

Thanks for looking!

Dave

The Downtown Austin Plan

Posted by Dave Cothran Realtor

 

Greetings everyone,

I ran across this information while on the City of Austin’s website, looking for my neighborhood’s bulk waste pick-up date.  Adopted by the city council December 8, 2011, the Downtown Austin Plan outlines the communities vision for downtown, and strategies to achieve that vision.  The plan is summarized in this document,  and can be read in it’s entirety here, Downtown Austin Plan as adopted by the city council, 12-8-2011. I feel this is overall, a positive initiative and plan, to take Austin forward into the next couple decades and beyond!  I am still working my way through the document, and will post any interesting findings as I discover them!  As always, feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance to you in your quest for Austin real estate, or general information about our great city!

Cheers,

Dave
