Dynamic Duo's

There have been many dynamic duo's throughout history.....Batman & Robin, Martin & Lewis, Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Cheech and Chong, Bert and Ernie, Bob & James(see earlier post)........

......Peanut Butter & Jelly....our homeowners have come to know the best New Home dynamic duo in Austin..... Streetman Homes & Mueller.

Here are a few comments from our homeowners......"Our Streetman home is really well-built and designed. It is both livable in design and solid in construction. The green-building features throughout the home have kept our utility bills at a fraction of what a comparably-sized home would use. It’s amazing! When asked by our friends and family about our electric usage, they think we’re putting them on. As you know, our family places a high priority on reducing our ecological footprint. Still, it’s one thing to talk green and another to live it. You’ve built us an extremely smart home."

"I have now been in my home 6 weeks and find the home a perfect fit. Friends who have visited love the house and agree my furniture fits perfectly. When I received my first utility bills I couldn’t believe how low they were. With the help of Bob, I closed on the home in Mueller 11/2 months later. This was a quick decision but the home style, location and general friendliness and helpfulness of the Streetman staff helped make the transition easy. After I moved in, James Prince continued the great service by responding immediately to any concerns I had about the house and he helped me locate many service people.
Bob & James ahave been great!"

It's always nice for others to let you know you are doing things right!

Speaking of Dynamic Duo's.........check out another great combination.

These are two of the most amazing homes on the "Upper Eastside". They have the best views of Downtown, UT, the Lake Park...just amazing. Check these out.....

Once in a Lifetime

In the next few days, we are going have a date that will be a unique occurrence....the unusual number line up will only happen 4 more times in next 93 years.....or only 10 times in a lifetime. Curious? A week from Monday, it will be 8/9/10. Yep, pretty cool huh? What a great day to be born....everyone would always remember your birthday. (By the way, speaking of remembering, my birthday is that day, August 9th that is...will you always remember now?) Just thought I'd let you know.

Speaking of once in a lifetime, we are down to one 5-Star Green 1-Story home. Yep, the last one. Last chance for years to come for a 5-Star Green home here at Mueller.

The Other Half (Full or Empty)

Well, we have turned the corner on the year. On to the 2nd half! Hope you had a terrific 4th of July Holiday. Has this year flown by or do I just say that every year? It is an amazing year many major situations happening: Oil Spill, Economy, War, Immigration, you name it. There are many things out there. So are you a half-full or half-empty person.....or even better,(as Bill Gates states) the glass is always full(full of 'matter' when there isn't liquid). I like that idea. The silver lining, the lemonade from lemons, the icing on the cake....whatever you want to call it, there are many good things happening right now that make now a great time to buy a new home.

So, what are those reasons making it a great time? How about the lowest interest in the history(38 years)of tracking interest rates. A recent buyer got 3.9% for a 15 year fixed. Are you kidding me! Do you know that today you would save more than 2 1/2 times what you would have saved with the tax credit based on the interest rates being lower than back on April 30th. Aren't you mad no one has told you that?

Low prices.....New Home prices have never been lower than right now! But here is a news flash...they ARE GOING UP! Why...there are not lots left. We are running out here in Austin. Try finding a new community...they don't exist..they are all tied up and if you ask people who takes more than 2-3 years to get developments ready for building. So with less lots, job growth continuing here in Austin....things are aligned to buy a new home now.

In fact, KXAN News actually called us to come see what we are doing here at Mueller and in Austin to buck the trends happening nationally. Things are good in Austin. Check out their news video yourself.......

We have a few homes remaining....5-Star Green, loaded with features, great views, you name it. Come see me at 2300 Tom Miller or call for apoointment: 473-3725.
Don't regret jumping on this opportunity. It is a "once in a lifetime time".
