Just a few months ago it looked like the single family homes market was tempering a bit, not now. The statistics show a clear tightening overall. Today for the first time (since I have been tracking) the number of homes under contract pushed above 5000!
If you are considering buying a home in the Austin Texa Metro this year you need to connect with a full time REALTOR® .If a great home becomes available today you need to see that home today ASAP. Having to wait for any reason will likely leave you out in the cold. I helped two different clients this week see homes within hours of the homes being available. Both times the listing agent was still at the house putting on the lock box, sign or fliers! One client couldn't make it to the house so we used "Facetime" to share detailed information regarding condition that the listing pictures don't show.
Available Homes: 6243 Under Contract: 5188 Sold Last 4 weeks: 2267
If you are considering selling your home in the near future and would like an estimate of what I believe it will sell for give me a shout. I'd be happy to provide a detailed free estimated selling price.

"Young First-Time Homebuyers - August 2015
We had the good fortune to be recommended Violet's services this summer when we decided to purchase a house in Austin and cannot overstate how helpful, resourceful, and determined she was through the entire process.
We went into our search with high expectations for our intended budget and some less than common requests and Violet was not only unfazed by this, but immediately sought to rise to the challenge. She responded to calls and emails at practically all hours of the day from when we first contacted her until we closed, and even when we became frustrated or discouraged never wavered or slowed down searching for us.
She never hesitated to give us honest opinions even when it wasn't what we wanted to hear, and saved us from more than one serious mistake by doing so. She was unflinching and uncompromising dealing with sellers representatives and always made sure to protect our interests. And she helped us compromise between ourselves on difference we hadn't even thought about before she brought them to our attention.
We've been home owner's for just over a month now thanks to Violet and are incredibly happy with the property she helped us acquire. If you are searching for a realtor who simply will not give up you need look no further."
