Although it might seem like we just got to the spring season, a new season will be here before we know it! The Austin Board of REALTORS® just released the latest market stats for April, and if these numbers continue to increase, summer might be the best season to sell your home this year.

Low Inventory

The Austin Board of REALTORS® shows a 3.4-month supply of inventory for Williamson County. While this is a 0.8-month increase from last April, it’s still well below the 6-month inventory needed for a balanced real estate market.

Low inventory means there’s less competition for sellers, a higher possibility for multiple offers, and higher sales prices.

We want you to get to know our Team! Below, you will see some answers from our Founder and Associate Broker, Clyde Davis. 


How long have you worked in Real Estate/How did you get started?

I have been in real estate for nearly 45 years.  A lady in my church asked me to go to work with her selling real estate.  She was doing quite well so I thought that would be a good idea.  After about a year I wanted to start Liberty Hill Properties and the rest is history.  After years of long days, long weeks, lots of blood, sweat, and tears......we were overnight successes.

How long have you worked in Real Estate/How did you get started?

 

I will be in Real Estate for 25 years this summer.  It is easy to remember when I started because I had just had our middle child.  Clyde had just helped us sell our first house.  I was working downtown Austin at the time and had just had our second child.  He called and asked if I would have any interest in working closer to home.  It was a blessing then and has been a blessing ever since for me and my family!

How long have you worked in Real Estate/How did you get started?

 

I have been working in real estate since 2000 and before that worked for 2 homebuilders in the Houston area.  When Paige and I moved back to Liberty Hill after our oldest daughter Bailey was born, I joined Cyde in his real estate office and started selling real estate.  I thought I might also build homes on my own, but that never materialized.  I found my passion in helping people reach their real estate dreams.

When the weather starts cooling off in the fall, it is time to move indoors. There are many ways to spruce up your home so that you'll gladly want to get cozy and spend more time inside. Below are some new trends to check out as you consider a home makeover for a fresh new look.

Color Trends

According to some designers "in the know," gray is the new beige. Different shades of gray make any room look cool and rich. If you're not a fan, then stick with cream colors or white, and create visual aesthetics using different textures and shapes. 3-D art can be especially appealing.

If all that gray and beige isn't your thing, then consider jewel tones to add a splash of color. Indigo, peacock blue, emerald green, and fuchsia get your attention in…
