Round-up of Good News About Austin


I have spent a lot of time touting the strengths of the Austin area over the past couple of years, and trying to educate my clients and blog readers about important distinctions between the Austin/Central Texas real estate market and the dismal news we keep reading about our nationwide circumstances.  My Austin Market Dashboard was created for exactly that reason (and will be updated this week when final March data is released).  In addition, I have posted many articles naming Austin at or near the top of various rankings.

With that background, I was very happy to see that the Austin Business Journal has assembled a great summary of all the good news:

Austin ranks high for, well, just about everything

Best city to live in, second best for finding a job, one of the top “moved to” cities, among the top job-generating cities, top 10 for quality of life, and on and on.  There are a lot of great places in this country — and I would be thrilled if Austin was closer to a beach — but Central Texas has a lot going for it. 

As for the real estate business, I am very thankful that I have been here for the past several years rather than working through the worst that this recession has dealt.

About Bill Morris, Realtor

More than thirty years of business experience (high tech, client service, business organization and start-up, including many years in real estate) tell me that service is the key to success and I look forward to serving you. I represent both buyers and sellers throughout the Austin metropolitan area, which means first-hand market knowledge is brought to bear on serving your needs: -- Seller Representation is a comprehensive process that begins with thorough market analysis and consultation, continues with properly staging the home to achieve the highest price possible in a reasonable time on market, a complete program of marketing and promotion, ongoing updates and communication, closing coordination, and follow-up throughout (and after) the sale. -- Buyer Representation is also full service: shopping, previewing, price and market consultation, contracting, negotiating, coordination of inspections, appraisals, repairs, and closing details, and follow-up beyond the closing of your purchase to ensure your lasting satisfaction. Because the real estate industry is becoming more sophisticated and challenging every day, you need a professional that understands the industry and is positioned to stay ahead of the game. I go the extra mile to help you achieve your goals. That's why I constantly research the market and property values so your home is priced effectively from day one. I also make sure the public knows your home is for sale by using innovative advertising and marketing techniques to attract potential buyers.
