What the heck is going on at Agave Austin?

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


The last year has not been a good year for east Austin’s modern home community Agave 969.  Everyone I talk to about Agave is scratching their heads about what’s going on at Agave.  The rumor I heard is that the bank is taking back ALL the remaining Agave lots…the auction could be in May but of course no way to know for certain.  Hopefully a design-minded builder will pick up the lots and continue the modern home theme.  My guess is that the Agave re-sales will remain strong over the coming few years, just because it’s so unique and there is a strong appetite for modern design in Austin under $400k.
