One of the best things about Austin – aside from the amazing tacos, incredible music, gorgeous weather and dangerously sexy nightlife – is the wide array of interesting homes spread out across the city. Certainly you have your standard cookie cutter variety homes (which are still better than your cookie cutter variety homes, Sacramento! Don’t act like you don’t even know!), but there’s also a plethora of homes with real charm.
We’ve partnered up with some of the finest real estate reps in Austin to showcase some of these amazing home each week. Keep in mind, though: real estate in Austin is selling like hotcakes at the moment, so we can’t guarantee these homes will still be on the market when you make your inquiry.
So, wanna see some cool houses?
