2023 Holiday Season Closures

We hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Our updated holiday closing schedule is available at this link.  We wish you a happy holiday season.

Holiday Cooking and Drains

When preparing the meals we all enjoy during the holidays we generate a lot of food waste.  We just want to remind everyone that nothing should be put down the drains or it could result in plumbing charges to you if things get clogged up.  Here is a short article about the issue, and keep in mind that while this discusses food waste you should also never flush things down the toilet other than human waste and toilet paper.  Manufacturers of wipes claim they are flushable, but they are absolutely not flushable and should never be put down drains.

Austin, Texas Market Update

As we wrap up the year going into the holidays we are experiencing the same seasonal market downturn that is expected.  We’re also experiencing several other factors that are weighing heavy on the market.  The sales market has slowed significantly and is adding rental inventory on top of the apartments that are completing construction thus making the market more competitive. We’re seeing leasing specials like a free month or other incentives that we haven’t seen for several years.  Our clients have recently begun offering incentives as well to stay competitive after seeing much longer vacancy periods. 

Here is a recent article about the housing market discussing the swing from being a frenzied market to having a much larger inventory with reluctant buyers and sellers.

That being said there isn’t much to report and we will all wait and see how the market levels out over the next few months as externalities take shape.

We will be closed on 11/10/23 for Veterans Day. You can find our updated holiday closing schedule at this link.

Election Season

While we don’t want to discuss politics we do want to encourage everyone to vote. Early voting has begun in some areas, and there are quite a few items on the ballot including state, county, and city items depending on where you live.  We encourage everyone to take some time to educate themselves on the issues and go vote!  The League of Women Voters issues a nonpartisan voters guide and there are many other resources that can be found with info on the ballot items.

October 2023 Austin, Texas Real Estate Market Update

The real estate sales market has swung significantly over the last year as interest rates have risen, and that is having a clear impact on the leasing market as well.

Real Estate Market Update

As we mentioned over the last few updates there is clearly a slow change taking place. The market is clearly shifting with an abundance of available rentals in the multi-family and single-family markets.  The last two months or so have been the most significant in terms of the number of available properties, days on the market, and pricing changes.  The overall experience on our part is that rental prices have leveled off, and there is a lot of competition for tenants that is driving it.  

We are working on publishing a full report using the most recent data and will be sending out an email update on the leasing market very soon. In the meantime, we want to share some articles that provide some data that shows these trends.

The first article was published in June by Reventure Consulting using Zillow data and reflects what we are experiencing.
