Pendings are up 17.71%.
Solds increased by 46.78%
In Lakeway, residential units sold are down 5% compared to last September. Overall, I think these numbers are pretty good. Do you think that the first time home buyer tax credit has a big impact on these numbers? If so, what would happen after November 30th when the tax credit is GONE? Ouch!

I have a buyer who is in town who needs to relocate to Austin this spring, which means, they need to find a home in the next few days. Caveat is, the husband is overseas and was not able to join us house hunting. We have narrowed down the choices to 2 homes. This home is the wife's top choice. As a buyer's agent for this couple, my job is help both spouses make the decision TOGETHER. Did you read that correctly? Well together does not only mean the husband and wife, there are also 2 children involved. How did I help the spouse and 2 children, who is currently left overseas to help with the decision? I have taken these tours myself to help the family feel the home as if they were walking the home themself (minus the chit chat of course). I am a poor narrator, it may take 20 takes before I say everything right so I decided that this was going to have to be a silent move.
Bring out the popcorn and see what the family overseas saw to help them make the decision.

FYI, I tried to upload a couple more videos but Blogspot is giving me an error. The blog might be too large for multiple tours. Anyway, the family voted a big YAY on this home and we are currently under contract.
