If you are protesting your property taxes here are a few quick tips that may help you be more successful this year. 

They Give You Their Comps

Within your notice of value you should have received a Comparable Sales Report giving you the specific properties the tax office used to determine the value of your home. I often hear of homeowners going to for their appointment without this information. They are showing you their hand and you should be able to use that information to help your argument. 

Removing A Comp May Be More Important

The reason why it’s important to know in advance their evidence is in my own experience demonstrating to the appraiser why a comp shouldn’t have been used gets me more bang for my buck than providing additional…

One of the neighborhood events I look forward to is the semi-annual Avery Ranch garage sale. This event happens in both the spring and the fall. The Spring 2022 Avery Ranch garage sale will take place on Saturday, April 30th, 2022 from 7AM-1PM.

With almost 4,000 homes in the neighborhood there will be plenty of homes selling items. This is a great opportunity to find clothes, toys, bikes and furniture.

If you are having a garage sale at your home feel free to leave your address and a list of items you are selling in the comment section below.

One piece of advice is to get started early. Cars will be lined up at 7AM and the great items will sell right away.

Everyone is asking me “How’s the real estate market?” Here’s what we are seeing.

Transactions are still happening. As of today, March 30th, in the Austin MLS on average over 100 homes are going under contract every day. Things are slowing down but people are still selling and people are still buying.

Here's what we are seeing with our business. Some of our sellers and buyers are telling me they are going to hold off for now and I’m supporting them in that decision while I continue to keep them aware of what’s happening.

Some of our clients need to sell now and some need to buy now, and we’re doing that with all the appropriate precautions.

All of this is day by day and in some cases hour by hour. Things may be different by the…

When the owners of 15909 Dink Pearson Ln called us they were concerned about the price we could get for their home because there had been several recent sales nearby for much lower prices. Because home prices in our area can vary based on unique criteria of each home it is important when pricing your home you work with a Realtor who has experience selling homes here. Everyone has access to data but there is a huge difference between data and knowledge.

After reviewing the market and what our experience told us about the market the owners trusted our suggested list price. The owners also believed in our proven marketing system that exposes our listings to the maximum number of buyers. Our marketing system gives us the best chance to…

Austin has seen excellent price appreciation over the last few years. As a result many homeowners have decided to move up to a larger home and lease their current home. Before making that decision it’s good to have an understanding of what it costs to rent a home so you can make an informed decision about your property.

Renting a home is more than just multiplying the expected rent by 12 months. Here are some of the expenses you may incur if you decide to rent your home.
