Now Is A Great Time To Lease Apartments Downtown!

20150117_182509_HDR_resized (1)I love living near downtown Austin. If you are looking for an apartment in the downtown or surrounding areas, this is a good time to look, in my opinion. It is just after the holiday lul in real estate followed by the wait period that a lot of apartments experience between now and May-ish. Though my building is reporting 96% occupied. It is amazing, but to beat this lul, I am seeing a lot of incentives, like a month free rent and/or almost no deposit.  I also offer various incentives for using me as your agent. So, if you are interested, just email, text or call me, and I will help you drill down your search. There are so many choices down here, that it takes a little information to get it to a reasonable search for you to look through and decide which ones are best for you. I love showing down here too.

Good time to sign a lease

This is a great time to negotiate a lease in this town. The prices are negotiable right now. In my opinion, we will see the prices correct and go right back up after the first of the year. I recently have helped a few folks renegotiate their lease and/or sign a new one. If you are interested in moving any time soon, hit me up. No one wants to move now, but we can negotiate your lease and get it locked in before you ring in 2015! Then you can move in January and start the year off fresh and in a well negotiated new place to call home!

October 2014 Austin Market Statistics

20141021_141438_HDR_resizedAccording to Austin Board of REALTORS Multiple Listing Services report (10/23/2014), the number of listings were down in September 2014 (3,472) from 3,589 in August which was down from 3,732 in July in the Austin area alone and not including the suburbs and bedroom communities. At the same time that the inventory is down, according to the September 2014 Multiple Listing Service (MLS), Austin-area single-family home prices set a record for the month of September.

Median price for Austin-area single-family homes increased eight percent year-over-year to $240,000 and average price rose seven percent year-over-year to $308,514 in September 2014. These are the highest figures recorded for both median and average price for the month of September. The average days on the market is 44 and has remained consistent.

I have read and heard the report that claims Austin area real estate is overvalued, then I look at the reality of the situation. According to the City of Austin, Bureau of Vital Statistics, there are 110 people moving to Austin every day. In my opinion, logically, I realize that no one is building any are more land here in Austin, so what you will continue to see is increasing values in the structures available, with particular increases projected from the core out, or inside out. I predict that investors will be handsomely rewarded. There is a giant medical school coming to town. There are more and more venues coming to this town every day. The place is a buzz all in the same old Austin I remember with little reminders of yesteryear Austin, like Donn’s Depot.

Leasing is also up 8% this September versus September last year in the Austin area. Leasing is big business, and the prices are quite expensive in the central areas of Austin. Regardless of whether you buy or lease, I recommend that you contact a professional (me of course) to help you make informed choices. The choices are overwhelming, but there are affordable places to live, and even in Central Austin. Having a confident and competent professional is essential to make sure that you find what you are looking for, and location is key.
