There are so few quality modern homes for sale in Austin right now.  There are some (check out my list of Austin modern homes for sale) but not many….so let’s build yours and get EXACTLY what you want for less than most of the resales out there.  A lot of my clients are building and I can help you build this (pic above) in Austin, on a killer lot with views for around $800k to 900k depending on selections.  Call me 512-413-0870.

Eanes ISD, Contemporary, +6000 sf Coming Soon ~$2mil

Posted by Tom Bates

 

Just got a call from another agent who has a newish construction contemporary home coming on the market soon in Eanes ISD in west Austin.  Home is on a cul-de-sac, has over 6000 square feet, spa, pool, “top of the line everything”, on about an acre lot.  I’m supposed to go check it out tomorrow…if it’s hot I’ll email it out to my preferred buyers first, then update it on our Austin modern homes list…or call me if you want to discuss it.

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.)

Census Shows Massive Building Boom in Austin

Posted by Tom Bates

 

An interesting article in the Austin Statesman looks at the recent census data (2005-2009) that shows the explosion of sleepy farm towns on the edge of Austin’s perimeters turned into sprawling and popular bedroom communities.  Not surprising, those with the most growth were Hutto, Bee Cave, Kyle and the 183 Cedar Park/Leander corridor.  Here is a link to the Stateman Austin new home building article. By the way our Austin Realtors are all new home sales specialists.

Drees Homes in Austin Offers $30k Plus 1.99% Rates

Posted by Tom Bates

 

Ok, it’s an introductory first year rate on a 2-1 buy down but with a 4.118% APR  it’s still a killer rate.  Drees builds a fine home and we’ve been selling them for years.  I love their Steiner Ranch and Eanes neighborhoods.  Austin Modern Living Realtors can help you through the Austin new home purchase process from start to finish.  Working with us we can normally offer you an EXTRA $5,000 off any deal on a new construction Austin home, and if you are relocating we can cover much of your relo costs including executive short term leasing.  Speak with one of our agents for more information and conditions.  Here is  a link to the Drees article in the Austin Statesman.
