March is here, 2019 is going by in a blur, and the weather is changing by the minute! Still, my favorite month of the year is March. This month brings some great times and festivities around Austin, including St. Patty's day and of course, the SXSW Music and Film festival. We take back our extra hour of daylight in March, we drink green beer, and we fight SXSW traffic all month long, who could ask for more! Who knows, you may be able to break out your shorts and t-shirts later this month, see some amazing blue bonnet fields bloom, and actually get to go outside and enjoy some decent weather. In the meantime,  check out these great events going on throughout Austin, TX and go find something fun to do!

Would you like a new home for the holidays? Now may be the best time to take advantage of Builder end of year specials!

 With the cooler weather and holiday’s right around the corner, the last thing on your mind is searching for a new home.  Typically home sales, new and resale, slow down in the fourth quarter because families have more important things to worry about, like being first in line at the local at their favorite retailer Thanksgiving night to save $10 bucks on the latest Black Friday sale item! But future homeowners don’t even realize instead of saving a few greenbacks on the newest X-Box, they could be saving THOUSANDS of dollars on their new home.  That’s right, the best time to get a new home on a builder’s existing inventory is usually

Buying Short Sales and Foreclosures… From the Perspective of the Bank.

By Victor Aguilar, REALTOR (former REO Asset Manager)

 Let me first start off by explaining my past experience in the industry. I have been in real estate for almost 12 years now. Six of those years were in the height of the foreclosure boom. As an Asset Manager for a big mortgage bank, I prepared properties for sale, set up listing marketing plans, negotiated, and closed on over 2000 individual transactions. There is much I learned during those interesting years!

Although all asset manager operated their portfolios in different ways, there are certain truths that are the same regardless of the asset manager, investor of the note, or the mortgage-servicing bank involved. I

 I grew up here, born at St. David's Hospital in 1976. It might sound trite or obvious to us all, but things change. I mean really, really change. I spent most of my life on the far south side of Austin in an area called Manchaca. It was always a bit removed from things, but never too far away from the conveniences of the big city. It was really the best of both worlds, beautiful greenbelts and creeks and roads that either lead you further away from people and things, or towards them. I watched 20+ years of growth along Manchaca Road and FM 1626 where I grew up. I can tell you that there has been more visual change to that area in the past 10 years than the previous 20. 

Things not only change, but they change exponentially at some point it seems.
