Horrendous interview with a real estate agent. I'm still in shock. Venting...

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 14:55:48 -0800

This nutcase wants to pay $50 flat for 50-100 images for each property... uploaded within 24 hours... in an area where the homes go for Millions of dollars. She also wants all of the photos to be uploaded to a website she wants me to build for her, needs all of her social media to be updated with each property, and wants me to do some videography for the properties as well. Then she went on about how many international Asian clients she has... and apparently according to her, "Asians love blondes and the color blue. So always wear blue when you are in front of the clients, since you are a brunette." After that she made a comment about how unprofessional my bangs are. My bangs aren't edgy or unprofessional, they're more Zooey Deschanel. I'm so disgusted!! Are all real estate agents insane like this?? This is the first agent I've met with. Previously I've worked with clients who were privately selling their homes... wth?

Thought you guys would like some real estate numbers for this year.

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 03:54:20 +0000

For more resources, I highly recommend the Texas A&M Real Estate Center's site for Austin: http://recenter.tamu.edu/mdata/Austin-Round-Rock-San-Marcos.asp

Hi, everyone. I'm a realtor and thought some of you might like some general numbers for real estate in Austin this year. These numbers are taken from the MLS and cover Austin specifically (with a handful of outliers like Belterra that have an "Austin" address for the MLS).

Note that this is different from the "Austin Area" numbers that ABOR gives to the media each month, which includes the broader area outside of Austin as well (e.g. Williamson County, Lake Travis Area).

Sorry if it's a little sloppy to look at, but it'd take forever to type it all in detail. Hopefully Reddit doesn't screw up the formatting.

Edit: u/shiruken made nice charts for us based on these numbers! Look at his comment.

Median sales price for a single-family home (SFH) by year:

'12 = $245K '13 = $270K '14 = $295K

Median Days to Sell for SFH:

'12 = 22 '13 = 11 '14 = 10

Median sales price for Condos:

'12 = $180K '13 = $200K '14 = $215K

Median days to sell for Condos:

'12 = 35 '13 = 18 '14 = 13

Cash buyers for condos in ’04 and ’01 made up 35% of condo buyers in that area this year.
