buying

If you want to discuss buying with me, it’s pretty easy to get started, just drop me a quick note here. My preference is to start off with a visit to make sure we are a good fit and that I’m able to help you. If you’re here in Austin maybe coffee, cookies or lunch? Can’t wait to meet you! What’s your schedule look like?

If are a fit, we will get you out in the field looking at homes pretty fast. We like to focus on educating you to the market first. We do that by showing lot’s of homes. We show homes a little differently than others – you might click here to learn about speed dating for homes

Just listed! Beautiful 3 bedroom home in Hyde Park 449,000

 

We just listed this great house. Classic Hyde Park Bungalow! Long Leaf pine floors, high ceilings, original built in book shelves around the fire place and original french doors.  Huge front porch that is just begging for a porch swing or two! Kitchen is big enough for a kitchen table. Original details through out house.

About 1350 sq ft, being used as a three bedroom one bath, with two living areas. This is just a gem. I would love for someone to turn two of the bedrooms back into porches and make it a two bedroom with the original 2 sleeping porches.  (Just for grins I ran some numbers on that project – it should cost ~50 K to covert and should sell for 545-570. )

This lot has amazing trees and alley access.  It is is set up high off the ground so it’s easy to have access. (This is important when you own an old house) Located on Avenue C, you can walk to Asti, Hyde Par Grill, VinoVino, everything Hyde Park has to offer.

The house is in great condition and has been pre-inspected so everyone knows what they are getting.

It’s the best deal in the neighborhood at 449,000.
