Posted by Tom Bates

 

Been seeing a lot of national news about Austin’s real estate market being hot/healthy/etc compared to other US cities, here’s a link to a Trulia Pro Real Estate Blog – Austin article.   Honestly, Austin does not have a lot of competition on this list, I mean I could see living in Seattle, but the others:
San Francisco? > hello ridiculous amounts of state taxes
Nebraska? > do what?
Ft. Worth, Houston, San Antonio? > no way, no way, no way

Austin Real Estate News: Austin Homebuilder confidence reaches 6-year high

http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/news/2012/10/16/homebuilder-confidence-reaches-6-year.htmlAustin Business Journal by Jeff Clabaugh, Broadcast/Web Reporter Date: Tuesday, October 16, 2012, 12:13pm CDT

The National Association of Home Builders said its builder confidence index rose for the sixth consecutive month in October, gaining one point to 41.

Confidence among the nation’s homebuilders rose to its highest level since June 2006.

The National Association of Home Builders said its builder confidence index rose for the sixth consecutive month in October, gaining one point to 41.

Even so, any reading below 50 indicates more builders still view sales conditions as poor rather than good.

“Many builders are reporting increases in the number of serious buyers visiting their sales offices, and the overall confidence measure is much higher than it was at this time last year,” said the association’s chairman, Barry Rutenberg. “The concern is that, even though demand for new homes is rising, overly tight credit conditions are still constraining new building and new purchases.”

The biggest increase in the NAHB’s monthly survey of its members came in measuring traffic of prospective buyers, rising 5 points to its highest level since April of 2006.

An Austin-based homebuilding organization and advertising agency GSD&M are collaborating on a multimillion-dollar national consumer campaign to convince homebuyers across the country to buy new rather than buying a resale home.

Pocket Listing: Central Austin Modern Home $329k

Posted by Tom Bates

 

Austin modern home pocket listing: Picasa Web Album:

This place is seriously smoking hot. It’s private, light bright and killer cool. Nothing else like it on the makret right now. 5 minutes to UT. 2 minutes to Dell Children’s hospital. You can look and look and look but you will not find anything close to this in style and location for the money. I promise you. This Austin modern home is elegant, clean, open and sophisticated. And totally private. The main living area has a sliding glass wall that opens to the private green creek area in back…it’s like being in a tree-house, in a good way. Relax or party on the backyard deck! This will not last.
