Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
Homes.org, a fast growing real estate search portal, is now bringing buyers and sellers advice on the Austin real estate market from the local agents who live, work and play in the city. "All in all, we're very fortunate to be in the Austin market," said Eric Bramlett, Broker / Realtor and Owner of One Source Realty in Austin, TX. "The Austin real estate market remains extremely stable, but most sub-markets still lean towards buyers. On average, sellers can expect to sell their properties between 96% and 97% of asking price, in about 2.5 months. The market is ticking slightly up, with year over year volume up, and inventory down."
