3-Car Garage + Workshop in Avery Ranch

Posted by Tom Bates - Telephone: 512-413-0870, Email: tom@austinmodernliving.com


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.

15512 Staked Planes Loop, Avery Ranch

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

Posted by Tom Bates - Telephone: 512-413-0870, Email: tom@austinmodernliving.com


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….

Small Touches to Modernize your House

Posted by Scott Parris - Telephone: 512-698-7202, Email: scott@austinmodernliving.com


I recently met with a client who was thinking about selling their house, but also wanted to do some small remodeling to help modernize their house.  One thing they wanted to do is replace their 30 year old front door.  They had spoken with several custom door companies that specialize in modern doors and the prices well exceeded their budget.   I did some research for them and found a company in North Austin called the Door Outlet that has good selection of modern and mid century modern doors that can easily compliment any Central Austin Property.

If you are looking to do some small updates to your home and you are looking to stay within a budget, adding a new door and some paint, might be just what your house needs.   Small touches like this can go a long way when selling your home, especially in trendy neighborhoods like Travis Heights, Hyde Park and Crestview.

Available Lots in Central Austin

Posted by Scott Parris - Telephone: 512-698-7202, Email: scott@austinmodernliving.com


I recently helped a client sell their vacant lot in southeast Austin that is less than 3 miles from downtown.  Here was the listing: 1809 Cedar Ridge Dr.

The buyers had been looking for a house for months, but could not find what they wanted.   They decided to buy a lot and build a home that fit their needs.   As home prices continue to rise, as reported recently by the Statesman, it can be more and more difficult to find that perfect home.   If purchasing a lot to build is something that you are considering, send me an email and I can keep you updated on lots in Central Austin as they become available, as well as potential off the market listings for vacant land.

X-Games in Austin!

Posted by Dave Cothran - Telephone: 111-222-3333, Email: nobody@example.com


Greetings All,

Well I love it, AT-X-Games! Love it or hate it though, Austin continues to set itself as a destination for great events, festivals, and conventions!  Austin will be looking at over 2000 new hotel rooms between now and 2015 and should continue to snag larger events and conventions, check out this Austin Business Journal article.  On to the title topic, we are the new home of the Summer X-Games from 2014 to 2017!  ESPN chose Austin over three other finalists, Chicago, Detroit, and Charlotte for the hosting honors.  The games will largely be held at The Circuit of the Americas facility however, there are sure to be countless events, side shows, concerts and the like, in other areas of the city during the event.  Stay tuned for more information!

Cheers,

Dave
