Real Estate Market Update

The real estate market seems to be cooling off according to a recent article that is based on recent board data.  As we’ve mentioned previously there is more rental property inventory coming online which is increasing competition for prospective tenants and driving down rents.  This trend is continuing and means you must be priced competitively to lease a property, and raising rents when renewing may end up causing a vacancy if it is too aggressive or drives the rent above the market rates.  At least one blogger who specializes in real estate has posted an article recently supporting the assertion that being competitive in the leasing market is more important now than it has been for a long time.

Summer Heat and Air Conditioners

The extreme, record-breaking summer temps have been on a long streak.  We discussed these items in the last post, so if you missed that or want a refresher you can see that here.

Watering the Trees at Your Rental Property

The recent record-breaking heat in Texas is rapidly depriving trees of much-needed water to sustain life and prevent disease, so it is critical that you make sure yours are being watered.  Established trees do not need daily watering but will still benefit from weekly watering if the rains continue to hold off. A small windbreak tree, one planted a year or two ago, still needs about 2 or 3 gallons of water a week. A 2-inch diameter tree (measured at 6 inches above the ground) should receive about 20 gallons of water a week during drought periods. The best means of applying this water for landscape trees is slowly with a soaker hose placed near the tree. While tree roots typically extend out as far ...

Real Estate Market Update

While the real estate sales market continues to adjust to the interest rate changes earlier this year we still see a healthy demand for rentals in our market that continues to have a housing shortage. The population of many Texas cities continues to grow with employers moving or expanding in Central Texas, and as of 2022 the US Census Bureau stated that “Georgetown, Texas, remained the fastest-growing city by percent change in 2022.”

As mentioned in our previous update many apartment developments are coming online, but there is a certain portion of the population that prefers detached housing and are willing to pay a premium for it over stacked apartment housing.  An article in April from Money magazine states that Austin saw the highest drop in rent pricing since 2020, which in our experience is certainly tied to apartments rather than detached dwellings.  That will likely ...
