Austin Labor Shortages

On top of the supply chain issues, labor shortages in Austin are exacerbating the availability of maintenance and other services due to the steep incline of housing prices.  Many people throughout all labor demographics are having a hard time affording Austin’s high prices, which results in them moving to the outskirts, nearby cities, or leaving the region altogether. &...

Maintenance and Repairs

Time is of the essence when it comes to repairs in certain situations. We are facing an unprecedented demand for maintenance services while also dealing with a vendor labor market that is overloaded with work requests.  This is across ALL trades from fence builders to plumbers to HVAC vendors, and it's unlike anything we have ever seen in our industry. 

Our vendors are working feverishly to complete all maintenance and make-ready repairs in a timely manner. We ask that you please take this into consideration when requesting multiple bids for repairs and make-ready items. There are going to be scenarios where a second estimate may not be available in a timely enough manner and may do more ...

Residential Benefits Program and Renters Insurance

We have officially rolled out the updated RBP plan that includes renter’s insurance by default for all renewals and new leases.  The details can be found on our website in the tenant resources by opening up the sample lease and taking a look at the Renter’s Insurance Addendum.  This is a very reasonably priced Renter’s Insurance option and we recommend comparing it to your current coverage.  The RBP default coverage insures all adults on the lease for only $11.00/month, and can be modified with increased contents coverage if the default of $10,000 is less th...

Austin, Texas Rental Market Trends

Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, Austin’s real estate market has been on the rise. There have been a multitude of factors that have contributed to the rise in costs everywhere, especially in Austin. The data below shows the increase in home value % across the state of Texas. As you can see, our area has been the most affected by the changes happening these last couple of years.

Residential Benefits Program and Renters Insurance

Last month we briefly talked about the importance of Renter’s Insurance in the context of the Tornadoes that impacted quite a few people in the Central Texas area.  The second round of storms spun up in the weeks since then that dropped more tornadoes northeast of Austin.   This is just one example of things that might trigger a need for renter’s insurance to cover your cost of temporarily staying somewhere else while repairs are made.

When we recently introduced the Resident Benefits Program (RBP) we were also working on Renter’s Insurance options with the goal of setting up a simple and cost-effective insurance option for tenants.  We’ve finally got that set up and by May...

Property Tax Time - What to Do?

The Travis County Appraisal District has released appraisals to homeowners across Austin, and expectedly, home values are way up.

The data this year shows the median home price in Austin now sits at $632,208. Up from $413,403 in 2021 and $354,622 in 2020. That represents an increase of 52.9% in just the last year. Congratulations if your property has appreciated alongside this crazy market!

One thing that comes with this rise in value though, is the rise in property taxes. We expect a lot of homeowners this year to be surprised at the size of their tax bill for their property. As a property owner, you have actions you can take that can greatly help you reduce this amount owed for your pr...
