Round Rock, a great place to live!

We have been living in round rock for many years now and still, there is nowhere we would rather be. 

Currently, there are over 125 NEW HOMES ready to be moved into.  Not to mention that builders have been working day and night to met the expected demand for new homes in the area. 

Austin is getting very crowded and Round Rock, with its unique downtown enviroment and the vast sports activities, is looking great as that wonderful town to live in thats just minutes away from the Austin wierdness we have grown to love. 

The time is now, Interest rates are low and the new home inventory is very promising.

Lots of incentives to buy (green, VA, Veterans land Board, 0 down FHA)

Call me and lets go over what you need to buy your new home today.

With prices from the $160,000 ‘s and up.  Round Rock has  everything you need.

New Avenue off Real Estate Road

Regretfully, I have parted company with Urban Squared Realty.  Alot of great People working at that organization.  I will miss many, maintain with a few, and let the dead die in thier place.

On a bright note, I have not traveled far.  Michael Reeh who owns and operates Apartments HERE! has welcomed me back and I look forward to working with him and the Apartments HERE! crew for a long time.   I remember that I told him I was coming back if things didn’t work out at James’.

Back to doing what I love to do…

Need to negotiate and lease renewal? Here are some tips!!

   If you wish to negotiate with a landlord or management company, you should start the process at least 30 days prior to the deadline on your contract for vacating. 

When negotiating, key points to consider:

–your timely payments

 –your contribution to the beautification of the property

–your contribution to maintenance issues

 –the small number of issues that have escalated to management

 –loss of income from property when you move (i.e. marketing to lease to new tenant, cleaning, repairs, etc.)

Try to find out the current market value of the property (zillow.com) to see if you are paying above or below.  If you are paying above, you have a good resource for your negotiation.  If you are paying below try to offer something in exchange for the increase.  Offer to extend for 6 months to a year longer in the lease.  For example, if you are negotiating a 9 month lease, offer to bump it up to a year or 18 months instead.  This gives owners some piece of mind for a longer time. 

Retention is the bread and butter of property management.  There are numerous costs when property managers have to fill vacancies.  If you have been a “valuable tenant” these tactics should help to avoid the new rent increase.

I have used these tactics with new leases as well as renewals.  For me, they have worked 75% of the time.  Keep in mind that you may not be able to negotiate with the manager, so be prepared to move.

I hope that this helps you in your mission.
