Both seller and buyer clients have found that having a home warranty/service contract, has been well worth the money. One HVAC failure can well exceed the premium many times over. They can provide coverage during the listing period as well as the first year of occupancy, with an option to renew. I highly recommend all of my clients consider this option, it's good protection.

Past, present & future clients,
Hopefully everyone had a good Merry Christmas and enjoyed your various holiday traditions with family and friends. In a few weeks President Elect Obama will be sworn into office, some are happy some are not, only time will tell. In 2 1/2-3 years the process will begin again. None the less time goes on, we go about our business no matter who is in the Whitehouse.
On the upside, contrary to the doom and gloom of the local media and press “if it bleeds it reads” format, Austin is being shown in a positive way nationally! According to Forbes.com and Moody’s Economy.com Austin is in the top 10 Nationally in a number of categories as of 12/16/2008: No.1 America’s Best Bang For The Buck Cities, No.2 Best City To Buy A Home, No.4 Best Cities For Home Sellers, No.5 Where Home Prices Are Likely To Rise and of America’s 10 Fastest Growing States, Texas is No. 3. Help me spread this positive word about Austin and our market.
Unfortunately some who purchased $0 down/$0 closing or on Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM’s) need to sell or restructure their loans to avoid foreclosure. Mitigation / Short Sale assistance is an option give me a call there is no cost for asking.
