April is here! The flowers are blooming, the days are longer, and the weather, well...it's still trying to make up it's mind. If you are looking for something fun to do around Austin in April, look no further! Here are some of our favorite things to do in Austin this month!
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!
Fall is FINALLY here! As the temperature cools down, Austin,Texas festivities start to heat up!

Spring is upon us, and one thing is for sure, the Austin Real Estate market is starting to heat up! Homes that are going on the market are selling a lot faster than in the previous months and years, so it safe to say that we are still in a seller’s market.
According to recent statistics from the Austin Board of REALTORS in January 2015, the median price of home sales in Austin metro has increased by 13% to $240,000. The average home price increased 14% to $310,000. The average days on the market for homes has remained unchanged at 63 days. Over 1500 homes were sold in January 2015, which is an 11% increase from January 2014. Typically January is a slower month for Real Estate sales, but this year has proved otherwise!
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.
