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.
