nbsp; Published by: Daisy Gregg I would like to start with a story. A very recent story. As in the last couple of days. So my husband and I have decided to purchase a new car. My car has lived a good life and I am ready for something safer and new. The car is 12 years old and I wanted a change. We decided on the model and make that we loved, it did not take us very long, we fell in instant love. It actually happened quicker than either of us thought. Then we were left with the problem of what to do with the old car. We initially just wanted to trade it in but the dealership was only going to offer us half of what it was worth, now that makes sense but at the same time it was a little disappointing. Then we decided we should try...

Published by: Daisy Gregg How do I even start? What do I do now? These are some of the most frequently asked questions while I am sitting across a brand new agent during our onboarding session. I can imagine how daunting this all seems at the beginning. You just got through with school and you passed that test for your license, but then you are thrown into literally figuring out how to run your own business. And how to make money. Now I am no expert, I am not even a realtor, but this transition seems to be the hardest because it just seems to be an abyss of options, that can be scary. As a psychology major, you learn that one of the worst things to happen to your brain is to have too many choices. Now you are done with this st...

Happy Birthday Katie and Terry Published by: Daisy Gregg Have you ever considered how much time you spend with people you work with? You can see coworkers more than you do your family. We see and talk to these people every day. This creates a special bond, one that can last even after you may leave this job (if you do, sometimes these people and the job are so great you could never think of leaving). I have had that experience with the people I work with at Berkshire Hathaway. We are essentially a family. They took me home when my car broke down (Katie) and let me cry in their office when stuff in my life was just not going great (Telisa). Sometimes you canrsquo;t express to them how much they have impacted your life or celebra...

These up-and-coming Austin communities have become increasingly popular for a range of reasons, such as the quality of homes, parks, and shops, as well as proximity to the cities top amenities, affordability, and general attractiveness of the community in general.

It should go without saying that buying a home is a huge step in anyone's life and it requires plenty of planning. The problem is that many first-time buyers don't know how to make sure they're ready when it comes time to buy, which could mean that you're missing out on amazing homes.

But even though preparing to buy a home may seem a bit daunting to inexperienced buyers, having a clearly defined list of thing you need to do before buying your first Austin home will make things much easier. That's why we've outlined five steps that will help you be ready to snap up a gorgeous home in one of your desired Austin neighborhoods.

As we talked about last time, interest rates have gone up a bit. So what does that mean for the buyer? Should you wait? Well, since rates are predicted to continue to go up, the answer is no, you should not wait. As this article points out, yes, the record low rates are gone, for now at least. Who knows what the future will hold. Most economist are saying that the next five years will see an increase in rates. So certainly waiting is only going to make your house more expensive. Sure, you could wait for the rates lower than 4% to come back. But you may be waiting a long time. The odds point to us getting back to 6-8% in the next few years, long, long before we get back to the sub 4% rates again. So, don't let a small jump in rates now sc...
