You see a sign go up in your neighborhood and a few days later, you see an “Under Contract” sign on top of it. Then, a few weeks after that, the sign comes down and a new family moves in. What did they pay for your neighbors home? You want to ask your neighbor, but also know that’s probably a bit rude.
Home Sales Data Hard to Come by in Austin
If you don’t know, Texas is a non-disclosure state, which means we can’t post home sales information for the public to see. As annoying as this may be to the consumer, it keeps the appraisal district from knowing what homes sold for and ultimately keeps your property taxes lower. This is the main reason you don’t see home sales information plastered all over the internet like you do in other areas of the country.
How You Can Find Out What Your Neighbors Home Sold for Without Asking
We’ve just introduced a new report, called a Market Snapshot, where you can get neighborhood sales data like a Realtor. All you have to do is input your location (street address or a zip code) and the neighborhood report will be sent to your email – without ever speaking to a Realtor. The report shows all real estate market activity near your home, including what your neighbors home sold for (once it closes escrow).
How Do I Sign Up for the Report?
All you have to do is fill out the form below. Want a sample of what you’ll get in the report? Click “View Sample Analysis” under the “A: Real-time Market Snapshot” in the sign up box or scroll down for a screen shot.
What Does the Report Look Like?
You will get a detailed report (without the black marks you see on the one below) sent to your email monthly, though you can opt for weekly, bi weekly, bi monthly, quarterly, bi yearly and yearly. The area we selected below (near the Texas State Capitol Downtown) does not have too many single family homes for sale, so you only see a few results. Your report will have all the data for your neighborhood.
What Neighborhoods Does this Report Cover?
We have reports for every single neighborhood in the Austin metro area, including all suburbs. Simply put in your info on the form above and get your report delivered to your email in a few minutes.
Will You Hound Me with Emails?
Absolutely not! We hate to be bugged more than you do. We are way too busy to hound you with emails asking you if you’re ready to buy or sell. But, we are never too busy to help people who need our help. If you ever decide to buy or sell and you think we could help you, don’t hesitate to reach out. In the meantime, take advantage of this free report and keep up with home sales in your neighborhood.
