Travis Height Groovy Vintage Remodel – For Rent $3200, Possible Sell

Posted by Tom Bates

 

I have a pocket listing for a 3 bed 2 bath house in Travis Heights.  The home has recently been to-the-studs remodeled (by a Dwell magazine cover page celebrity architect!) and is bright, clean open, hip and cool.  Duravit faucets, cherry wood floors, alley access, laundry room, gas, on demand hot water, modern ceiling fans, new modernized kitchen. Pets ok.  Front and back yards. Fruit trees, bamboo. One story. House could possibly be available for sale in the low $500k range, but owner would rather rent it now for $3200.  House will go on MLS next week…so hurry! 512-413-0870

Great Modern Home Sites in Austin

Posted by Tom Bates

 

I spent most of the last 5 days in my car looking for the best lots to build on in west Austin, Eanes ISD, and some in the southwest corridor out past Circle C.  There are some really nice building sites out there right now.  I also spoke with at least a dozen different Austin modern home builders in the last few days.  Not much in the way of spec homes right now, sadly…though there are a few here and there…nothing like a few years back, even last year.  There are some surpising new (cheaper) ways to build I’m finding.  Also caught up with a couple Austin construction lenders…money is still tight but there are programs for one-time close and conventional lot+construction financing.  Looks like this year I’ll be spending half my time at construction sites, looking at dirt and going over architect plans and drawings…should be a fun year!  (As a side note, I will be previewing a non-listed Travis Heights modern remodel tomorrow…it might be coming on the market for lease maybe around $3200/month and maybe for sale around $500k….more details after I see it tomorrow.)
