Hi Alex -
Thanks for the reply. As you can read in my post to Tim, the house was in Williamson County. I was looking at other properties as well. Sorry, I should have been more specific.
As for the 159K, you are completely correct; there were other sales in the ranges you mention. Like you, I thought it (the 159K) was high, but the sale was 4/22/00 and was the exact same floor plan only two blocks away. Nevertheless, I did not base my offer on that figure.
The house was built in 1981 and has all the attributes, both good and bad, of that period. It does sit on a VERY nice wooded lot. In fact, I based my offer more on the lot than the house!
In this case, I don’t really care. If I get it fine. If I don’t – well, I’ve got plenty of things to keep me busy and it looks as if I’ll have to add Austin to my “play” schedule for the first time since the mid 90’s.
Thanks again for the help and the advice. It is much appreciated.
Please let me buy you lunch, dinner, or a beer – your choice!
