Is Now A Good Time To Buy A Home In Austin?

Reading this news you may be asking yourself if now is a good time to buy a home in Austin? The answer to this question is yes! Now is a great time to buy a home in the ATX area because there are more homes to choose from than there were last year and mortgage interest rates are still historically low.

Should you wait to buy a home until next year? The answer to this question depends on your personal situation but from experience I can tell you that there are always deals to be found during the Fall and Witner months because many people have to sell their homes due to job relocation or a variety of other reasons.

It’s also a good time of year to sell a home in Austin as well because you can stage your home for the holidays and capture the attention of more buyers who are looking for the perfect holiday home that they can celebrate the holidays with in the future.
