We live in a city of plenty…

Plenty of Jobs,
Plenty of healthy, fit people,
And plenty of foreclosures.

This is not something you normally associate with Austin, Texas. Despite being one of the strongest real estate markets in the country, we still have a black eye.

Last month, about 22%of all real estate sales were distressed. Meaning, they were either a foreclosure sale or a short sale.

The bad news is, there are still people loosing their homes in Austin. And it. is. a shame.
The silver-lining is the opportunity this provides for investors to make some really good deals.
