    Can some one shed some light on this issue?

    I do have the same set of questions.

    It would be better if someone could list the pros and cons.

    Dear Hope,

    Its good time to buy home In austin , Becoz the the value are increased by 12k in last 6 months ,In every year its getting increaseing by min of10K !

    1.Of course chooseing the single or double story is depends on ur budget, but
    mostly single story will give good return ! But if u give prefrence to the elevation u have to choose the double storyone . Mostly both will cost same !
    Regarding the Sft choosing its depends on the single or double story.
    But min 2000 sft home will be good. for Your future family planing.

    2.Going with realtor is good option , they will negotiate the price with builder
    usally u will get some discount or upgrade .
    chooseing the relator is very important Pls go by some references.

    3.Regarding the future ,bunch of them add value to ur home ! main things Like
    Kitchen appalinces, (atleast black colour or stainless steel ),counter tops
    (grainte ),carpet -Berber, blinds(FAUX or wood) ,kitchen and restroom,foyer flooring(Tilesor grainte),backyard door(double door) , backyard patio, Ceiling of the house is very important . Higher ceiling will give good looking.

    4. our experience davidweekly is good .

    If u have any Q letmeknow ! Happy home Hunting!

    Thanks
    selvi.
