It’s Not Central Texas, But It Is My Home Town!

My home town made Money magazine’s Best Places To Live 2015! Ranking in at number 8, up from 2013’s ranking of 32, “Coppell has the benefits of Southern hospitality with a cosmopolitan flair.” — Veronica Crews 

While I highly encourage you to stay here in the Austin metro area, if you head northbound, give little ole Coppell a try! And though we no longer sell homes in the DFW metroplex, we have a handful of very close friends who are ready to assist if you do!

May Is National Moving Month


Hard to believe but it’s already May which means it’s National Moving Month! May marks the beginning of the peak sales season for real estate where we’ll see nearly 50% of 2015’s housing transactions take place. If the reported number of homes going pending in April holds true, we’ll see a 10-year high in closed units during May; a record we may break several times this summer as interest rates remain below 4%.

More than half of our May 2015 home sellers built their plan with us a year ago.  Whether you are ready to make a move this summer or are considering one for next year, we should meet now and build the plan together!

May is National Barbecue Month!

May is National Barbecue Month; though I suppose every month is BBQ month here in Central Texas!  From the brisket explosion over the past few years that cemented Austin’s place on the BBQ map and helped win Aaron Franklin a James Beard award to the regulations the Austin City Council are working to place on meat smokers, it’s clear Central Texans are passionated about smoked meat goodness.  To me, Austin is the center of the BBQ universe and we’ll be celebrating all month long both at the amazing local establishments and of course at home. If you are looking for recommendations on one of the newer establishments or maybe some grilling ideas let me know! I promise not to “steer” you wrong. After all, I’m a certified BBQ judge. I have a badge and all!


ABOR’s Press Release on March Statistics

Austin-area home prices reach all-time high, home sales set record for March 2015



Austin Board of REALTORS® releases real estate statistics for March 2015

AUSTIN, Texas – April 21, 2015 – Austin-area single-family home prices hit an all-time high, while single-family home sales volume set a record for the month of March according to the March 2015 Multiple Listing Service (MLS) report released today by the Austin Board of REALTORS®.

Barb Cooper, 2015 President of the Austin Board of REALTORS¬®, explained, “The Austin-area housing market is the least affordable it has ever been. Solving Austin’s affordability issues is not only dependent upon generating new, affordably-priced housing stock, but also preserving and maintaining Austin’s existing housing stock. The recent Zucker Report is yet another indicator that Austin’s city leadership needs to take significant steps to ensure that all of Austin’s residents live in safe, code-compliant homes and are able to quickly and easily make improvements to those homes.”

According to the report, the median price for Austin-area single-family homes increased 10 percent year-over-year to $255,000 in March 2015, while average price increased 13 percent to $334,758 during the same time frame. This is the highest Austin-area home prices have ever been. Only three in ten single-family homes sold in the Austin area in March 2015 were priced less than $200,000.

Single-family home sales increased 13 percent year-over-year to 2,440 home sales in March 2015, a new record for March single-family home sales volume. In March, more than half of the homes sold in the Austin area were outside of Austin’s city limits, with a majority of sales occurring in Round Rock, Pflugerville, Georgetown, the Cedar Park/Leander area and the Kyle/Buda area.

Austin-area monthly housing inventory was statistically unchanged from March 2014 at 2.2 months, a figure still well below the 6.5 month level the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University estimates as a balanced housing market. Homes continued to spend more time on the market in March 2015, increasing four days year-over-year to an average of 55 days.

New and active listings for single-family homes both increased six percent year-over-year to 3,402 new listings and 5,274 active listings in March 2015. Pending sales also rose during the same time frame, increasing five percent year-over-year to 2,812 pending sales in March 2015.

Cooper concluded, “It’s encouraging to see how seriously Austin’s City Council is taking the findings of the Zucker Report. Now that Mayor Adler and Austin’s new City Council members are past their first 100 days in office, the Austin Board of REALTORS® expects quick and decisive action on policies that will put a stop to Austin’s growing housing affordability issues. We’re looking forward to working with city leaders on finding these solutions.”

* The inventory of homes for a market can be measured in months, which is defined as the number of active listings divided by the average sales per month of the prior 12 months. The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University cites that 6.5 months of inventory represents a market in which supply and demand for homes is balanced.



2015 1st Quarter Market Update

Austin TX

April In ATX

Good afternoon and happy belated Easter!

The week immediately following Easter Sunday always represents the beginning of the busy season for Realtors. As the inventory starts its annual climb and the sales really kick into overdrive, let’s take a brief moment and look back at the first quarter of 2015.

Today, our local board has roughly 5,675 active single family listings (stand-alone houses, condos & townhouses). That’s an increase of just under 7% compared to this time last year. The first quarter sales numbers also appear to be increasing in every major category. 6,019 units closed in the first quarter, a 3% increase for the same period last year. The average sold price jumped to $317,565 and the average sold price per foot was approximately $171.67; increases of 10% and 11% respectively.

My takeaway is that though the number of listings continues to rise, the sales are keeping up with the listings; and with estimates suggesting a net of 157 new residents are moving here each day, the demand is certainly present which continues to push prices higher.  Therefore a market slow down seems unlikely.  As we are currently moving into the home sales season, our market is primed for a robust summer and a continuation of the growth we’ve seen the past few years!

Still, opportunity is everywhere! If you are considering a move or real estate investment, or know of someone who is, let’s connect and build a plan together!

All my best,


Austin Market Watch


Once again, real estate sales in the Austin metro area are off to another fast start. While 2014 was a record breaking year, home sales are currently outpacing last year by at least 10% for single family dwellings with many listings still receiving multiple offers and selling over list price! And though early year projections for interest rates ranged from 4.0-4.2% with climbs throughout the year to between 5-5.4%,  today the rates remain sub 4% for a 30 year fixed.  WOW! I’ll never get tired of seeing rates in the 3’s though I’m afraid those days are numbered.

With home values at historic highs and the cost of money still at historic lows home sellers and buyers are sure to be satisfied here in the Austin metro area. Let us know if you are ready to discuss a future move and don’t forget introduce us  to your friends, family members and co-workers who are considering the same!

Lawn & Grass Care in Central Texas



Lawn & Grass Care in Central Texas

It’s that time of year where the days are getting cooler and maybe you’re looking outside thinking ‘I give up on this grass!’  Well, don’t give up just yet, you CAN save it!

Last year we were in the same boat but with a little bit of work, we turned brown, nearly dead grass into a lush green yard (and it stayed green all summer long!).  Here are some tips that really helped us:

  • First and foremost, stay on top of those weeds y’all!  And use your hands and hand-tools, not poison!  You must grab those weeds and pull them out, roots & all.  I think weed patrolling every 3 weeks should serve you pretty well.  If you go too long, the weeds take over and you’ll damn near get carpal tunnel trying to pull them all out in one day.  But, it’s worth it, trust me.  And one day, when your grass is super dense, weeds won’t grow so much at all.
  • Maybe you have some freshly-laid sod and it’s not really “taking” and rooting into the underlying dirt.  Aerate that soil.  You can get a small tool similar to this one  they also have cleat-like attachments to your shoes you could try out while mowing your lawn.  2 birds with one stone!
  • When you mow, leave that grass at least 4 inches long.  We leave our mower on the max. setting.  A lot of people like to scalp their grass to get that tight crew-cut look of the 1950’s, but let me remind you, we’re in a drought and that Texas-hot sun is a grass killer!
  • Sprinkle sprinkle that compost all over those dead-looking patches (and even in the non-troubled areas for extra credit).  Do it now and again in early-to-mid-February.  My favorite is Lady Bug Revitalizer Compost.  If the patches are too barren, consider some new sod or planting seeds.
  • Try to water early morning and early evening to avoid sun-magnification-resulting-in-burning-of-grass.  A nice, deep, long watering can do wonders, depending on your grass type.
  • You may find grass just won’t grow close to the base of a tree or in the shade.  Consider alternative uses for that space (e.g. mulching, rock-gardening, storage, shade-friendly plants or a planter box/pot).
  • If your yard has more serious problems to tackle, the Natural Gardener ( is a really wonderful resource.  Not only is their staff incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, but their website is amazing.
  • Here are some sweet links from the Natural Gardener on lawn care and watering:  and of course your monthly to-do lists:
  • One last thing, every homeowner needs organic ant killer!

This is the time of year where you can make great progress on your outdoor projects without getting a heat stroke.  Get out there and make yourself proud.

Texans Competing in Sochi


US of Texas




Looking for Texas athletes in this year’s winter olympics? You might be surprised just how well represented we are in Sochi!

If there’s one thing Texans know, it’s speed skating. Of course I’m kidding but whether tuning into the speed skating long or short track events,  you’ll find a Texan! Find Jonathan Garcia (Katy native) tearing it up on the Long Track and Denton’s own Jordan Malone flying through the Short Track.

Crave a bit of danger in your olympic watching? Check out this year’s Bobsled events featuring a few more Lone Star athletes. Running in both the 2 man and 4 man events are San Antonio’s Justin Olsen & McKinney’s Johnny Quinn.

Maybe Bobsled isn’t your thing, or perhaps you think the Luge should be raced head first, well you are in luck! Racing again in the Skeleton event (you know, luge but head first) is Katie Uhlaender (McGregor). Katie is one of the rock stars of this Olympics and though she currently claims McDonald, Kansas as home, we know she’s Texan through and through!

And though they aren’t skating for the Red White & Blue, there’s a few more Texans to keep your eyes peeled for. The Dallas Stars are sending several players to Sochi this year including shut down goal keeper Kari Lehtonen, captain Jamie Benn and 18 year old rookie Valeri Nichushkin. Find Kari tending the net for Team Finland, Jamie wracking up points for the gold medal defending and this year’s favorite Team Canada and our wonder kid Valeri wreaking havoc for the motherland, Team Russia.

So as you settle in to watch the spectacle, raise your cup of hot cider in support of the great ole U.S. of A. and most of all, let’s support Texas!
