This blog is about the Austin real estate market, along with tips for agents and other funny stuff that I deem fit to include.
We hear the questions above with relative frequency. For close to a decade, about half of our business consisted of representing buyers for brand-new homes. We know which Austin, Texas builders are worth considering, and (frankly) which ones to avoid. First and foremost, although they are probabl...
As an 11-year resident of the Meadows of Blackhawk, I like to keep an eye on the market values here in our neighborhood.  Prices have been trending upward dramatically over the past year or so, and they continue to appreciate.  As a fellow homeowner, this is important to me, too!  Currently, ther...
Right behind my office, in an unassuming strip center on Spicewood Springs, not too far west of Mopac, is one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in town, in my humble opinion.  If you like pad thai, I would put theirs up against anyone in town. My other favorite is the grilled chicken with vermic...
I haven't really been hibernating over the past few years, having experienced some wonderful growth and success in our real estate business, but I also haven't really been attending any solid networking events outside of Austin. I intend to change that in 2014. In a few weeks, I plan to attend th...
Almost four weeks ago, I decided to return to blogging here on ActiveRain. Well, to be fair, I decided to return to blogging in general, and this is my platform of choice. This is my 26th post since then (if I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will be kind enough to point it out - I counted quickly). Fra...
CQ Press (Congressional Quarterly) named Austin, Texas #4 on its list of lowest-crime cities with at least a population of 500,000. Interestingly, El Paso topped the list, and three Texas cities were in the top ten. San Antonio placed 10th. The data comes from the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting sy...
We had a lovely Christmas at our house this year. My mom was in town, the kids were supremely spoiled, and no one got sick. This marks the first year in recent memory when we made it through December unscathed by viruses of any kind. Two years ago, I battled a debilitating migraine which lifted a...
I saw a headline on a major news outlet webpage two days ago which read, "The Never-Ending Duck Dynasty Scandal Continues". This struck me as pathetic journalism for multiple reasons. First, the story about Phil Robertson's remarks had only been out for 3 or 4 days, which means that the news medi...
I've owned my own real estate company since 2004 now, and I probably get more than my fair share of telemarketing calls and email solicitations from companies all over the country. I got an email today that started out with something along these lines: "Hi Jason - Are you still accepting new clie...
I had someone ask me today what I felt was my favorite part of being a real estate broker. I hadn't really thought about it much lately, but the question provided me with some food for thought, and when I think, I often write. My very favorite part is too easy - getting paid. (Thanks, Captain Obv...
