The 2011 Profile of Texas Homebuyers and Sellers

The 2011 Profile of Texas Homebuyers and Sellers came out recently and it released some interesting news aboutTexas home buyers and sellers.  We pay close attention to reports like this so we can tailor our services to best serve our real estate clients. 

                For example, did you know the median age of a homebuyer in Texas is 46?  Luckily, Rodney is 46 this year so relating to this age group is one category we can easily, obviously, excel at.  Check!  Off to a great start!

                It probably comes as no surprise that 89% of all Texas homebuyers used the Internet as their top resource for their home search.  This is one reason why we put so much effort into our website, which allows our clients to search the MLS like a Realtor, with listings updated hourly, not after a day or two. 

                It may be of interest to note that the majority (36%) of Texas homebuyers and sellers found their real estate agent through a friend or relative.  This is one reason we work so hard to please our clients.  We know what if we “wow” you with our service that you will refer us to friends and family. 

                One area where Texas differed greatly from the rest of the country is in new home buying.  Over 30% of the homes purchased in Texas were new construction, while was just 16% for the United States as a whole.  Here in Austin, we work with many buyers interested in the new Circle C Ranch community of Avana, custom homes in and around Lakeway, or starter communities just North of Austin for example in Cedar Park or Manor.

                The number one thing that home buyers listed that they wanted from real estate agents was to help them find the right home to purchase.  We love working with our clients to identify that home and we stay with them every step of the way from securing financing to negotiating the best terms until it’s time for you to get the keys to your new home in Austin, TX. 

                Search the MLS like a Realtor and never miss the newest listings or the latest price changes. Search using criteria used by Realtors and brokers with multiple photos, satellite images, FULL MLS Descriptions and more. It’s easier than the MLS!  Search listings in Circle C Ranch, Austin and all the surrounding areas in Central Texas at
