Today is super bowl Sunday!  I have to show 4 homes and meet with a client for a listing appointment. But I will be back home by 5PM for the best commercials of all time during the Super Bowl Sunday game.   Some of my clients will get my CMA reports during the game today, I will post Austin top 20 luxury homes, wrote about the top 50 new homes from our best builders, and eat yummy food that my husband will cook while I am working between commercials (I don’t like football). So to help him out, I wrote the menu, give him a list of things to buy and send him links of videos to watch.  Happy Sunday!

Here are some of them:

1. Vietnamese salad from All Recipe

2. Bacon Wrapped Jicama (substitute bread for Jicama)

3. Scott’s Famous Buffalo wings

4. Vietnames Spring Rolls

5. Chocolate peanut butter bars

Where to invest in real estate in 2015?

According to the recent article from Forbes “Best Buy Cities: Where to invest in housing in 2015″ – Austin rank #1

“The cities on our list are places where opportunities are increasing–and so are their populations. While our top 20 could all offer good opportunities for investment, we favored those with the strongest population growth, which should promise a steady supply of renters. For example, both booming Austin, Texas (No. 1), and Grand Rapids, Mich. (No. 20), boast 3.6% and 3.7% annual job growth rates, respectively, according to the latest figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics—both beating the 2% national average. However, the Austin metro area’s population expanded by an impressive 8.9% between 2010 and 2013, while Grand Rapids’ grew at a slower 2.8% clip. As a result, Austin gets a higher ranking. (On average for markets across the nation, population growth has been relatively flat at less than 2% for the three-year period, according to U.S. Census data. Thus, all the Best Buy Cities are faring better than the national average.)”

Austin Housing – November 2014

AUSTIN, Texas – December 19, 2014 – The Austin-area continued to break records in home sales and median price for single-family homes last month, according to the November 2014 Multiple Listing Service (MLS) report released today by the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR). In November, home sales and median price were the highest ever recorded in the month of November for the Austin area. During the month, single-family home sales increased six percent over the prior year to 1,934 homes sold and the median price for Austin-area homes was $245,000, an 11 percent increase from November 2013.

Additionally, Austin-area housing inventory was 2.4 months in November 2014, a small increase of 0.1 months compared to the prior year. Housing inventory remains consistently tight despite an increase in new listings of five percent over the prior year and an increase in active listings of nine percent compared to November 2013. Housing inventory in Austin has remained below 6.5 months of inventory for more than three years, which is the inventory figure cited by the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University as a market in which supply is balanced with demand. In November 2014, homes spent an average of 54 days on the market, three days longer than the same month of the prior year.

Bill Evans, 2014 President of the Austin Board of REALTORS¬®, explained, “As the new year approaches, demand for Austin-area homes remains strong. Fortunately, listings are up year-over-year to meet some of that need, but demand continues to outpace supply, placing a continued strain on housing inventory and pushing up home values. That’s great news for Austin homeowners looking to sell, but as we’ve discussed all year, it continues to present challenges for affordability in our market. With the newly elected Austin Mayor and City Council, ABoR looks forward to continuing to advocate for the interests of all homeowners, ensuring our market can meet the needs of our residents and Austinites can continue to afford property in this great city.”
