In 2017 it seemed like just about everyone was buying or selling a home in Austin Texas and for good reason because huge demand and low mortgage interest rates made the prospect of buying or selling a home in the area irresistible.

Big Profits For Sellers In 2017

Last year, Austin metro area homes sold for a median of $57,697 more than the purchase price, a gain of 27.1 percent — the second highest return in Texas.

Zillow says the current 20 percent down payment on a median-priced Austin home is $58,620, meaning sellers' profits were just shy of covering their next down payment in the Capital City. The typical local seller owned the home for only 5.6 years prior to selling, far less than the 8.4 years nationwide.

AUSTIN, TX. – If you have kids there’s no denying that they do play a major role in your life because you want the very best for them right?

The same can be said if you’re buying a home. Before making your home purchase you’re going to make sure that you’re buying a home in a great area with an awesome school district because you want to give your children every advantage that you can.

More than half of homeowners with a child under 18 said the opinion of their child was a factor in their home-buying decision. Overall, 55 percent of parents said that was the case. For millennial parents, who are between the ages of 18 and 36, the influence of children…

AUSTIN, TX. – There’s no doubt that the 2018 Real Estate market continues to be one the toughest ever, especially in Austin where inventory remains low and competition among buyers remains high.

Thankfully, even though it may be difficult to buy a home in Austin for some buyers in 2018 it’s not impossible especially if you follow these tips.

Hunt hard

It's not a market for the faint of heart.

The median home price right now is up 7.6 percent from last year and up 15 percent compared to the year before that, according to Zillow. And compared to three years ago? Up nearly 22 percent.

These price hikes, more than higher rates, make the costs prohibitive for some buyers.

And inventory is tight because…

AUSTIN, TX. – Right now, is an excellent time to buy a home because thanks to historically low mortgage interest rates, homes haven’t been this affordable since 1980.

That’s right, long term affordability has never been better because mortgage interest rates are about 4.5% now compared to 16% in 1980.

Sadly, home affordability could be threatened though if mortgage interest rates continue to rise so if you’re serious about buying a home in Austin Texas, or elsewhere in the United States, now is a great time to buy before rates increase.

Changes to The Mortgage Interest Deduction
