August Was Our Hottest Ever


I thought this was a little relief from the heat since August was our hottest month ever.


Summer is Heating Up!

Austin is starting to get hot and so is the housing market. Homes and apartments are moving pretty fast.  Are you thinking about a place, but aren’t quite sure? Have you seen something you like? Would you be upset if someone else took the home of your dreams? If you find a home you like, chance are someone else does too! Don’t miss the chance to find the right home for you and your family.

If you are thinking of buying, there has never been a better time than right now.  Home prices are the lowest they’ve been in year, and rates have gone down too.  This combination will allow you to buy a bigger and better home for a lower monthly payment.

If you would like to buy, but are afraid you’ll lose money by selling your house, don’t fret.  The current housing market will enable you to upgrade into the home of your dreams, without having to pay a high monthly payment.
