Buy & Own a Home


It’s a Great Year to Buy a House

A couple thinking about their dream house

It’s time to ditch the old New Year’s resolutions.

(Who sticks to them anyway?)

Think bigger this year--because there’s never been a better time to buy a house in Austin. Even if you’ve never considered buying, consider this:

  • Austin rental market rates are the highest they’ve been in years.
  • Mortgage interest rates are still at all-time lows—but they’re expected to go up soon.
  • Buying real estate is one of the best ways to build your personal wealth for years to come.

You might be surprised at how affordable mortgage payments can be at current rates—they may even be comparable to the rent you’re paying now.

And unlike rent payments, mortgage payments are an investment in your long-term financial health, not to mention they ensure predictable, stable monthly expenses (no more unexpected rent increases!).
