Austin Investment Property

What if you could be alerted any time a property hit the market at a price per square foot signficantly under norm for the size and neighborhood the home is located in?  We have created just such an alert for various areas of Austin in order to better serve our investor clients and even those looking to find a great deal on their next home.  If you would like to be added to our alert list either for all of Austin or specific neighborhoods, please email jill@mysolis.com.  Foreclosure and short-sale (pre-foreclosure) alerts are also available, although we feel the price per square foot alerts are a more reliable indication that the home may be a good buy.  Admittedly, what makes a property a smart investment amounts to much more than price per square foot, but you have to start somewhere.
