New Beginnings

Did you know that the name Austin means great? It’s true—and what a great place to experience Spring and all the new beginnings this glorious season brings.

It’s pretty great when you think about inventory. In the last 12 months, notes the Homebuying Institute, “active property listings within the Austin metro area [have] more than quadrupled” while experiencing a decline in prices. And with mortgage rates continuing to drop, that’s a pretty great reason to get back into the market. Talk about a new beginning!

What else is great about Austin? Let me count the ways….

According to Uphomes, the cost of living in Austin is 3% lower than the national average. The job market is strong, and there are countless opportunities to enjoy your time when you’re not working. In addition to the renowned music and food scene, we have over 200 days of sunshine every year, making Austin a great city for outdoor recreation.

If you want to truly experience Austin, Spring is a wonderful time! With festivals all over the city, just about every weekend provides something exciting. We have film festivals, fitness festivals, and art camps. Whatever your interest, Spring in Austin has something for you.

If Spring 2023 is your time for renewal, give us a call. Happy endings are great, but there’s something magical about a fresh start. The Intelligent Real Estate team knows Austin inside and out and would love to be a part of your story.

Austin. Let it be a great new beginning.
